According tostudio estimates, this weekend was the biggest single weekend at the box office for all movies combined.

Avatar made $75 million over the weekend, falling a slight 2.5% from its opening day numbers. James Cameron's opus has cleared a 10-day domestic gross of $212 million.

Sherlock Holmes cleared $65 million in its own right.
