'Avatar' tops int'l boxoffice again
Sci-fi champ adds another $95.1 million
by Frank Segers

Hardly resting on its worldwide boxoffice laurels, "Avatar" charged ahead in its seventh weekend on the international circuit, finishing No. 1 with $95.1 million drawn from 11,327 screens in 120 markets.

Overseas gross total stands at $1.45 billion, pushing the 20th Century Fox release's worldwide gross total past the $2 billion mark.

With the domestic gross total registering at $594.5 million through the weekend -- still $6.3 million shy of "Titanic's" U.S. and Canada record of $600.8 million -- 'Avatar's" new global gross record comes to $2.045 billion.

Director James Cameron's mega-budget 3D spectacle broke "Titanic's" all-time overseas gross mark of $1.242 billion on Jan. 23, and notched a new worldwide benchmark $1.859 billion last Monday. It's expected that "Avatar" will break "Titanic's" domestic boxoffice record on Monday or Tuesday.
