The mighty Avatar trounced all comers for the third weekend in a row, taking in a huge $68.3M ($352.1M) to easily win the weekend. Sherlock Holmes had a good second week and brought in $38.3M ($140.6M) to squeak by Dumb Fucking Chipmunk Movie ($36.6M | $157.3M). It's Complicated had a strong hold and made another $18.7M ($59.1M) while The Blind Side keeps pancaking the competition ($12.6M | $209M).

Oscar front-runner Up in the Air led the second half of the top 10 ($11.3M | $45M). After that it was the lovely The Princess and the Frog ($10M | $86M), the awful Did You Hear About the Morgans? ($5.2M | $25.6M), the disappointing Nine ($4.2M | $14M) and the dull Invictus ($4.1M | $30.7M). The only film in limited release this weekend was Michael Haneke's brilliant The White Ribbon which averaged a solid $20,433 per venue.
