Avatar hung on to the top spot for the fifth consecutive week, now placing third in the all time domestic box office. The Book of Eli took a respectable second for its premiere and The Spy Next Door, last week's other newbie, placed sixth. Here's the top five:

2. The Book of Eli: $32.8 million
3. The Lovely Bones: $17 million
4. Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel: $11.7 million
5. Sherlock Holmes: $9.8 million

We've got three new ones hitting theaters this week:

Extraordinary Measures
What's It All About: Brendan Fraser plays a man who risks everything by funding an unconventional medical researcher (Harrison Ford) to save the lives of his children who suffer from a genetic disorder.
Why It Might Do Well: To this day, a movie starring the guy who flew the Millennium Falcon still gets my attention.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
While it may well be a good film, a story about children with a life threatening illness will be a deal breaker for many.
Number of Theaters: 2,450
Prediction: $9 million

What's It All About: A supernatural thriller in which God decides humanity is a failed experiment and sends his angels to wipe us out. The customers in an out of the way diner are mankind's first line of defense.
Why It Might Do Well: Based on the trailer this is a visually spectacular flick with some genuine creep outs.
Why It Might Not Do Well: Reminds me a bit of Constantine, which is not a good thing.
Number of Theaters: 2,400
Prediction: $12 million
