    AVATAR TOPS RECORD WEEKEND

    This is our first movie update for many days. Green Tea Movie was on a long break but now will be back to update you more on the movie news.

    For the starter, we have the box office news from the Land of United States. Powered by four movies with all posing a strong gross, the Christmas weekend in the US proved to be the biggest in all time for the Christmas weekend. This year, the 25th December fell on Friday and leading the pact is last week's winner Avatar. Avatar dropped only 2.6% from massive opening last week to score US$ 75 million to take the cum to a stellar US$ 212 million in 10 days.

    Going in second is Sherlock Holmes. Receiving positive reviews, Sherlock Holmes garnered a powerful US$ 65.3 million. The Bohemian detective won the Friday when it grossed US$ 24.8 million to break last year's Marley & Me for the biggest Christmas day gross.

    Alvin & The Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel opening on third with a three day weekend gross of US$ 50.2 million for a total five days spread of US$ 77.1 million.

    Nancy Meyer's latest It's Complicated which have Meryl Streep on it, together with Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin goes strong at fourth for US$ 22.1 million.

    With the top three grossing more than US$ 190.5 million among them alone, the top ten films grossed a record estimate of US$ 259.8 million, up 53% from the same weekend last year. So, who says recession hits the market? The year 2009 has already seen a record when for the first time in the history, the whole year box office market worths more than US$ 10 billion.
