This is a historic day in movie history—Avatar finished the weekend out of the box office’s top five for the first time in its 13-week theatrical run. An influx of new releases pushed the sci-fi epic to number seven, while the top spot went to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Alice earned $62 million, bringing its total gross after two weeks to $208.6 million. The next three spots all went to new releases: Paul Greengrass’ Green Zone took spot number two, earning $14.5 million;
Jim Field Smith’s She’s Out of My League was number three, earning $9.6 million; and Allen Coulter’s Remember Me, starring Robert Pattinson, was in spot four, earning $8.2 million. The number five spot went to Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island ($8.1 million in its fourth weekend, for a total gross of $108 million), while new release Our Family Wedding was at spot number six, earning $7.6 million.

Out in limited release were Korean film Mother, directed by The Host’s Bong Joon-ho, and indie film The Exploding Girl starring Zoe Kazan. Mother earned $35,000 on six screens, while The Exploding Girl earned $6,000 on just one screen.

Next weekend’s releases include The Bounty Hunter, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Repo Men and The Runaways. Several films are out in limited release, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, City Island and mainstream mumblecore film Greenberg among them.
