Although Avatar‘s $3.793 million Wednesday marks the first time the 3D sci-fi epic has dipped below the $4M mark, it was a drop of only 9.5% from Tuesday.  The film’s domestic cume now stands at $512.852M, and it continues to be on pace to pass The Dark Knight ($533.345M) and Titanic‘s $600.788M to become #1 on the all-time best domestic chart. More analysis and the daily chart after the jump.

Worldwide, Avatar stands at an incredible $1.686 billion, also well on its way to beating Titanic‘s record ($1.843B). Over the course of the last week alone (Thursday, January 14th-Wednesday, January 20th),  Avatar added $266 million worldwide.

Finishing in second place for the day was the Hughes brothers’ The Book of Eli which held up well on its first Wednesday, dropping 18.3% to $2.033M ($42.959M domestic cume).  And in third place was Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones with $734,680 ($22.06M domestic cume / $29.162M worldwide cume).
