Weekend Box Office (Feb. 12-14 + Feb. 15, 2010): Valentine’s Day ($63.1M) Breaks Presidents Day Record, Percy Jackson ($38.7M) and The Wolfman ($35.6M) Both Solid

Valentine’s Day grossed $63.135 million — well beyond Ghost Rider‘s $52.023 million — to become the top Presidents Day weekend debut ever. The film grossed $56.261 million over the 3-day frame and added $6.875 million on Presidents Day.

Business was also booming for second and third place finishers Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief ($38.662M 4-day / $31.479M 3-day) and The Wolfman ($35.555M 4-day / $31.236M 3-day), helping to push total business to near $250 million, up more than 10% over last year which was the previous Presidents Day weekend record.

Meanwhile  Avatar — which last week fell from first place for the first time since release — dropped to fourth place this weekend, but remained very competitive, grossing $23.612 million for the 3-day weekend (+3.3%) and $28.783 million for the 4-day weekend (+26.0%).  Domestic cume for Avatar now stands at $666.389 million.  $700 million here we come! Head on over the jump to check out both the 3-day and 4-day weekend charts.
