Weekend Receipts: Avatar Sees You, Raises $49 Mil

Another spectacular weekend overseas puts Avatar $460 million short of Titanic for the all-time box office record -- so close! Domestically, its $49 million haul puts it at seventh-highest grosser of all time, poised to overtake Star Wars in a matter of days. On the flipside of the equation, critically trounced McChick flick Leap Year (womanly, yes, but I hate it, too!) pooped in its pot o' gold, while two-times-the-Cera didn't prove to be two-times-the-cash for the underperforming Youth in Revolt, no matter how mercilessly he tickled our belly buttons from the inside. Hard numbers are after the jump.
