Dear John Ends Avatar’s US Box Office Reign
Avatar has finally fallen from its pixellated throne after seven weeks as the US Box Office number one.
Dear John, a romantic drama starring Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum raked in $32.4m in its opening weekend dwarfing Avatar’s second place grab of $23.6m.
Avatar this week became the highest grossing film ever now how a worldwide total of $2.21billion (£1.41billion) and has nine Oscar nominations (but none are for acting…).
We haven’t seen Dear John as it’s not out in the UK till April 19th, but judging by initial US reviews and the trailer, it looks like romantic schmaltz of the highest order. In fact, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
