So, Avatar is closing in on that record with at least another month theaters to go (could be a lot longer), and still coming in at #1 each weekend since release.
The only reason I can think of that the movie continues to make so damn much money is because the word is going around that it must be seen in IMAX 3D. So people who already saw it in regular format are seeing it again in 3D. Otherwise, I don't really know why the movie would make so much money. It was beautful and an okay story, but not one worth seeing two or three times in the theaters.
