So, as of today, Avatar has unadjusted gross of $512,852,205 in 34 days in release. Titanic had $242,748,914 after 34 days in release. If we apply the inflation adjuster we multiply Titanic’s total of $242,748,914 by 156% (derived by dividing $4.69 into $7.45) and Titanic’s adjusted total becomes$380,427,403 after 34 days in release.
Avatar earned $50.3M at the US Box Office the Weekend of January 9-10, eclipsing Titanic’s record of $28m which had previously stood as the highest 4th weekend ever.

EDI Nielsen is reporting this morning that Avatar will earn $68.3M on this, its third weekend in release based on studio estimates on Sunday morning. There is a possibility it might go a bit higher — indeed, every other time there has been a ‘studio estimate’ the figure has been revised upward when final […]
I’ve just finished putting up http://avatarvstitanic.wordpress.com — a daily tracking site to watch how Avatar proceeds in the “beat Titanic” derby I’ve been writing about.
