If you are curious about the box office pattern between Avatar and Titanic, click after the jump.

Box office for Avatar is still pretty good. Not quite $50 million this weekend, but close. Titanic at this time made $30 million, played in less theaters and was up 4.5%. Avatar made around $41 million, played in more theaters but was down 17%. If it wins the Golden Globe that should give it a boost. And it will probably, easily, overtake The Dark Knight by next weekend.
