[Update: Click here to see the final actual data for the weekend.]

The original article follows below.

Avatar dropped just 14.1% in its seventh weekend to take first place for the seventh straight weekend with an estimated $30 million from a slightly reduced 3,074 theaters (-67). The weekend number was enough to give the film a new record for biggest 7th weekend ever, beating Titanic‘s $25.907 million 7th weekend).  Avatar also became the first film in box office history to cross the $2 billion mark worldwide, with total box office at $594.472 million domestically and $2.039 billion worldwide.

Week-to-week (Monday-Sunday) Avatar added an incredible $196 million.  At its current pace, Avatar should clear Titanic‘s domestic record of $600.788 million by Wednesday.

On the new release front, the Martin Campbell-directed Mel Gibson thriller Edge of Darkness opened a bit weaker than expected, grossing an estimated $17.12 million from 3,066 theaters, while the Kristen Bell/Josh Duhamel romantic comedy did about as well as anticipated with a so-so $12.065 million from 2,456 theaters.  Head on over the jump for more analysis and the weekend chart.

Friday Box Office Estimates (1/29/2010): Avatar Will Have 7th Straight No. 1 Weekend

Update: Click through the jump to see the Friday chart updated with the final actual data.

Original article follows below.

And week seven makes it seven for seven for James Cameron’s Avatar.  The 3D sci-fi epic more than held its own against new competition, with a first place estimated $7.5 million on Friday.  Domestically, the film’s 43-day cume stands at $571.972 million.  Using this estimate, expect Avatar to gross somewhere in the neighborhood of $27-30 million for the weekend. And yes, that would give it yet another record; biggest 7th weekend ever (previous best belonged to Titanic‘s $25.907 million).

Worldwide Avatar stands at an estimated $1.925 billion. On its face that’s extraordinary enough, but it’s even more impressive when you realize that over the course of the last week (Saturday-Friday), the film added $206 million worldwide!  Avatar will break Titanic‘s all-time domestic cume sometime before next weekend (likely Wednesday or Thursday).

On the new release front, Edge of Darkness debuted weaker than expected.  The Mel Gibson thriller from director Martin Campbell grossed an estimated $5.63 million, and will close out its opening weekend with somewhere between $16-18 million.  Next up was the romantic comedy When in Rome which debuted in line with expectations with a so-so $4.4 million.  It should gross somewhere around $11-13 million for the weekend. Head on over the jump for more analysis and the daily chart.
