The #1 Spot Sends Avatar A Dear John Letter!

| Filed under: Film FlickersChanning Tatum


Could a chick flick bump Avatar off its box office high horse this weekend??

If Friday's numbers are any reflection of the days to come, YES!

Dear John, starring Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum opened to an impressive $13.8 million on Friday night, while Avatar only earned a little over $6 mil!

The seven-week #1 streak is (most likely) coming to a close!

    Eh…Dear John was as exciting as wet toast. It tried way too hard to make you cry. Channing Tatum, as good as he looks, cannot act his way out of a plastic bag.

    Re: teambella - Tell me about it. I don`t know what all the fuss is about Avatar, I saw it and thought it was pretty lame and way over the top preachy. The effects were cool but the story was stupid as hell. They go to this planet to get a mineral that floats, so rather than drag away the mountains of it that are already floating in the sky, they blow up a giant tree instead and kill all the Smurf people? WTF? And if James Cameron thinks humans are destroying plant life here on earth, maybe he should look at a sattelite photo of the earth and tell me what he sees. GREEN from plants…That`s all you see on almost all the land on earth from outer space. Even in the USA near the major cities, if you zoom out you soon realize that a city like New York city is completely surrounded by PLANTS! Forest, grass. Humans can never kill off plants like eviormentalists think and that stupid movie shows, there is just waaaaaaaaaaaay too much of it.

    Beautiful fucking poster.

    Channing is so hot droooool. I LOVED Avatar. Obviously not everyone would like it, but I did. I saw it as beautiful entertainment, some people over think, over analyze and stress over nothing. Lol crazies. :)

    I love surprises at the box office, like this one!

    Too bad Avatar couldn't make it 8 times at the top, but whatever. I'm sure that $2 billion dollars in worldwide ticket sales will keep the studio company.

    I refuse to see Avatar because I will not be a part of the asshole-prickface James "dickless" Cameron money-machine.
    Oh. And "Dear John" looks pretty damn boring.

  10. 10

    im going to see it today :D

  11. 11

    Utter crap.
    Go see From Paris with Love.
    Just came back and it was awesome.
    Absolutely hilarious plus had tons of action.
    Travolta was great.

  12. 12

    This movie was awful. Sucks Avatar gets bumped for a crap movie like this.

  13. 13

    Dear John made 13.8 million the first day. But Avatar made 27 million the first day.

  14. 14

    this movie sucks, id rather go on beachcreeps . com

  15. 15

    You wrongly said a couple of weeks ago that Avatar had lost it's #1 spot. Maybe you should wait until the weekend is over douchebag. You're such a fucking asshole.

  16. 16

    Wow, Avatar was only #1 for a month and three quarters, that's embarrassing.

  17. 17

    i watched DEAR JOHN yesterday!!
    so happy the tyrant reign of avatar is finally over!!!

  18. 18

    just like when "book of eli" was going to win the weekend? douche.

  19. 19

    sucking movie, but how long can a movie stay #1. not much out this week. why don't they ever do ticket sales to give a true indication of how many people are out at the movies?

    Re: Naomid – Okay first all, the mineral doesnt float. It’s metal and when near an object of the opposite electric charge, it will float. Since it was on top the disk that was opposite in charge, it floated, but it doesnt float on its own. Second, the floating mountains, DO float, but they arent made up of the metal they are looking for. The largest composite of the metal is under the tree, thus that is why they blow it up. Just because you thought the metal floats, which it doesnt, and the mountains do float, doesnt mean they are made of the same thing. And they arent smurf people. They’re called Na’Vi. And James Cameron didnt want to stop us from knocking down trees. It just so happens that the tree housed the natives, and was on top of the metal composite. Now, before you criticize something, get the facts right.

    After 7 weeks it is ok to drop off the top spot no matter what movie tops it. . Not sure why you make it seem like a failure. I think Avatar was just an average movie and I am not sure why it was so successful at the box office but there is nothing wrong with it sliding out of number 1.

  23. 23

    Dear John was actually better then I thought it would be. Got me to shed q few tears and i don't cry easily. It's one of those movies you either love or hate.

  24. 24

    I have not seen Avatar, but I DO want to see Dear John :D

  25. 25

    What's with these cheesy romances?

    Wasn't the book of Eli to take 'Avatar' down a few weeks ago when it made more money in the opening weekend?

    'Avatar: Dances with Smurfs' is an atrocious movie, but these cheesy romance movies are worse.

  26. 26

    I doubt that movie will make a billion in the box office.

  27. missB says – reply to this


    avatar isnt even that good. it just has really good special effects & visuals

  28. 28

    the moive was good i wont be harsh it had some hard times but it had mixture wich i didnt like but why make it a official dumb movie really

  29. 29

    You still have an issue with Avatar and Cameron? It's been amusing watching you report its success in a mocking tone. Truly pathetic.

  30. 30

    Re: AvatarNaVi
    wow that was really embarrassing
    shouldnt you be back on imdb trolling?

  31. 31

    Just hearing everyone craze about Avatar makes me wanna vomit! I haven't seen that movie ONLY because I'm most definitely not a fan of Sci-fi! Seeing Dear John tomorrow :) Loved the book and hopefully it's as good as the movie..

  32. 32

    Re: RubberSoul
    That's what I was thinking…

  33. 33

    Avatar was just a pathetic amalgamation of Fern Gully and Pochahontas. Predictible and preachy. Dear John looks like a shitty version of the notebook.

  34. 34

    Reviews for Dear John are pretty bad .. especially their criticisms of Channing Tatum's performance

  35. 35

    The book is about a thousand times better. Channing Tatum is a pretty horrible actor. Hes nice to look at though i guess

  36. 36

    Re: GOSSiP__xo – I am not a fan of sci-fi either but i found Avatar to be quite entertaining actually. Hope you enjoy Dear John :)

  37. 37

    I hope it does. Dear John was a great movie.

  38. 38

    lonely housewives, impressionable teens and desperate fat girls will make the movie #1

  39. 39

    really THIS knocked off Avatar? that sucks

  40. 40

    would'nt it be funny if sugar was salty and salt was sweet?

  41. 41

    I thought Channing did really well in the movie, especially the scene with his dad in the hospital, but I may be bias because I do love Channing.
    I can't decide if I like the movie… the first half was AWESOME, but did they end up together in the end?
    It's kind of hard to tell. I'd like to think they did.

    Anyways, thank God Avatar may finally be overthrown, I'm SO sick of it.

  42. 42

    i can't get over how awful this movie looks.. i can't believe anyone actually wants to see it.

  43. 43

    I hope it does. It looks awful, but it'll be funny one day to read that Avatar, which made a bajillion bucks off of putting Fern Gully in 3-D, got bumped off by a crappy movie no one will remember.

  44. 44

    The Last Song. :) I can't wait for that movie. This I heard is not even good.

  45. 45

    Re: AvatarNaVi – -

  48. 48

    of course avatar numbers are going to be low, its been out for weeks. the only people goin to see it now are the weirdos who see movies 7 or 8 times. oh well they both look lame, i ahve no intentions of seeing either

  49. 49

    Re: Naomid – haaa i was reading your comment and thought you were talkin bout dear john and i thought wow thats sounds nothing like the previews woopss

  50. 50

    Its looks like a fake version of The Notebook

  51. 51

    Re: Naomid – Your stupid and thats not what the movie was about please try again

  52. 52

    Its so funny u say " avatar only earned a little over 6 mil! like if i dont realize that its beating every other movie in the top 10, even with this being its 8th week out on theaters. I can only wait to see AVATAR claim the #1 spot this week so you can shut ur trp !!!! :D I really dont know what it is u got again CAMERON!!! is it maybe that he has and is making much more money than u? I wonder!

  53. 53

    and next week this lameness will drop to 10th, and james asshole's movie will be #1 again hater

  54. 54

    i love channing's "i really want to be a good actor" angst look in the previews. people who spend money on this crap are stupid

  55. 55

    Re: sunflower09 – lemme guess. you also liked the proposal. lol

  56. 56

    i'm a sucker for any kind'a lurrv movie…but ii'm kinda bummed that avatar got knocked outta #1 for this??…only reason why i got teary eyed is because my love is in the army & seeing this totally got me thinking of him……i deff. think it would have been better if they would have gotten another chick instead of Amanda Seyfried for the part….She's not so easy on the eyes…

  57. 57

    Ok so I saw DEAR JOHN yesterday and I honestly could not stop laughing… this is THE sleeper comedy of the year! Fuck it's hilarious

  58. 58

    YES Go see From Paris with Love…AWESOME MOVIE!!!

  59. 59

    DEAR JOHN LOOKS HORRIBLE…wish i could get back the minutes of my life wasted on watching the trailer….total crap

  61. 61

    the movie was horrible!

  62. 62

    Dear John may knock Avatar off, but you forget its raked in nearly $2 billion and has been out for a while. Avatar = Amazing. I would dare go see the shit your 'avertising' please Dear John sounds like all the other romance films out there!

  63. 63

    well that's pretty much true that people were not so inclined to watch avatar at the beginning but NOW it's just off the charts and my friend couldn't get tickets to watch 3d imax this week (and it's been out for a long time now)…i watched it the second day it came out and it was epic :D

  64. 64

    I saw dear John n it was boring. Not very interesting, frankly both Dear John n Avatar were boring.

  65. 65

    avatar = worst movie of the decade.
    i dont know why everyone got so excited about it.


  66. 66

    Saw Dear John opening day. Wasn't as good as the book but it was ok. The book is awesome. Guess all the anticipation of wanting to see the movie with Channing Tatum who was perfect for the role made me like it more than I should.

  67. 67

    it was the WORST ENDING EVER!!!!! it was also to much like the notebook. not worth seeing!

  68. 68

    i went and saw that.. i cried like a baby.

  69. 69

    Some human beings are too empty to enjoy an excellent movie. They would rather watch a senseless romance movie that requires -1 intellectual engagement. No one can blame them…
    Like the doctor said, "relax and let your mind go blank, it shouldm't be too difficult for you"
