Guy Ritchie To Madonna: My $66 Million 'Sherlock Holmes' Success Is The Best Revenge!

It was officially the biggest Christmas day opener ever!

Hey, Guy Ritchie — maybe divorcing Madonna was exactly what your career needed! Sherlock Holmes is a smashing success, not to mention your first big hit since marrying Madge in 2000. Maybe it would have just been too much success for one couple to handle. Sherlock Holmes took in an estimated $66 million this weekend, according to, making it the highest-grossing movie to open on Christmas day EVER! Guy, you were a success before, and if you keep this up you will DEFINITELY continue to be a success in the future!

But even $66 million wasn’t enough to nab Sherlock Holmes the top spot at the box office. James Cameron‘s Avatar stole the show once again with an estimated $75 million, bringing its global total to an incredible $405 million. And newcomer Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel scurried its way up to the No. 3 spot with an impressive $50 million for the weekend.

Ladies, did you see any of these movies? Let us know what you think!

Oh good now maybe he can give back the 70million to Madonna that she paid him from her hard earned money in the divorce settlement.

I went out to see Avatar. It was AMAZING!! I can understand why it’s underwhelming in sales. You can’t just go to any movie theater to see it in 3-D. I can’t wait to see Sherlock Holmes.
