Box office - weekend five

Avatar continued its blitz on the Irish market over last weekend. Its all-Ireland take on 3D is up to €6,547,510 while 2D has taken €1,142,939. Fifty-three 3D 'prints' took nine times the amount taken by forty-eight 2D prints over the weekend.

Only one of the openers made it into the top ten for the weekend, Mel Gibson's on-screen come-back, Edge of Darkness, which took the number two spot behind Avatar.

Released the previous weekend on sixty prints by Lionsgate, Jim Sheridan's Brothers slipped back by about 20% but held on to the number five position. However it hasn't made the top ten in the UK.

Precious opened with €19,100 from four prints, interesting to see if it picks up off the back of its Oscar nominations.

The Ian Dury biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll opened with €6,936 from thirteen prints.

I don't yet have figures for the Irish title, 8.5 Hours, which opened at six sites.

I will update this post in a few day's time with the full top ten chart for weekend five.
