Thursday Box Office (1/7/2010): Avatar 1st With $6.09M; 21st Consecutive Day Over $5M; $380.54M Domestic ($1.138B Worldwide)

Avatar‘s $6.09 million Thursday pushed the film to a domestic cume of $380.54 million, past Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith for 10th all-time on the domestic list.  The film’s worldwide cume stands at $1.138 billion (2nd all-time).

By the end of the weekend, Avatar will have easily passed the $400M mark and should settle somewhere at around the fifth to eighth all-time domestic performance.  On the way past $400M, it’ll pass Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ($402.112 million) as the highest grossing film of 2009.

All-Time Domestic Box Office

  1. Titanic — $600,788,188
  2. The Dark Knight — $533,345,358
  3. Star Wars — $460,998,007
  4. Shrek 2 — $441,226,247
  5. E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial — $435,110,554
  6. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace — $431,088,301
  7. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest — $423,315,812
  8. Spider-Man — $403,706,375
  9. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen — $402,111,870
  10. Avatar — $380,540,297

So look for Avatar to be at between $420M to $436M by the end of the weekend. Before the daily chart, here’s the latest Avatar vs. The Dark Knight chart [through day 21--click to enlarge]:

Once again, Avatar continues to slowly but surely catch up and has out-performed The Dark Knight on a daily basis since day nine. My prediction range for the total domestic take of Avatar still holds at $550-625 million.

Here’s the chart for Thursday.
