`Avatar` re-release fails at US Box Office
London: Acclaimed Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron`s re-release of sci-fi epic movie `Avatar` has been reported a flop at the US Box Office at the weekend.
The horror film `The Last Exorcism` topped the Box Office chart, debuting with USD 21.3 million in earnings, followed closely by `Takers`, the crime drama starring Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen and Matt Dillon opening with USD 21 million, reports a news website.
Meanwhile, Cameron`s 3-D special edition of "Avatar", which included an extra nine minutes of footage, failed to draw cinemagoers in droves as it did last year. The film pulled up merely USD 4 million.
Sylvester Stallone`s action hit "The Expendables" slipped to third place with $9.5 million, raising its three-week total to USD 82 million.
Rounding out the top five were Julia Roberts` feel-good film Eat Pray Love`and Samuel L Jackson`s action comedy "The Other Guys", taking in USD 7 million and USD 6.6 million respectively.
