There’s no stopping Avatar — it’s on fire!

Avatar continued its ruthless domination over the box office this weekend, grossing about $68.3 million in the U.S. and bringing its worldwide total to more than $1 billion, according to Deadline.com! Our hats off to you, James Cameron — your new epic is an unstoppable success. Sherlock Holmes also did pretty well this weekend with about $38.3 million stateside, and Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Squeakuel wasn’t too far behind with $36.6 million.

Meanwhile, the star-studded musical Nine performed poorly this weekend, bringing in a disappointing estimated $4.2 million. Even with that loss, it was definitely a big weekend at the movies! So tell us: What did YOU go see?
