Shutter Island, Michelle Williams, Leonardo DiCaprio

Paramount Pictures

Leonardo DiCaprio lost his crown this year as box-office king of the world. But he rebounded nicely this weekend with the biggest opener of his career.

Shutter Island dominated the competition with an estimated $40.2 million Friday-Sunday, a bigger haul than DiCaprio's last two movies made during their entire respective runs.

Meanwhile, Avatar, the movie that trumped DiCaprio's Titanic, celebrated its 10th weekend by moving up to third place, scoring another $16.1 million—and putting itself days away from an unprecedented $700 million-plus domestic gross. 

Stay tuned for the complete Top 10 standings…
