James Cameron's Avatar held strong, dropping less than 2% in its second week and maintaining its status as the number one movie. Last week's three new releases didn't do too shabby either, with each doing its best to separate us from any money we might have left after the holidays. Up in the Air and Nine moved into wider release last week finishing in sixth and eighth respectively.

1. Avatar: $75.6 million
2. Sherlock Holmes: $62.4 million
3. Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel: $48.9 million ($75.6 million total)
4. It's Complicated: $22.1 million
5. The Blind Side: $11.5 million

No new releases for the New Years weekend but the Christmas week releases still have plenty of momentum. I dare say Avatar is going to have at least another weekend at the top, and I think the rest of the top five will stay put. Here's my prediction:

1. Avatar
2. Sherlock Holmes
3. Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel
4. It's Complicated
5. Up in the Air
