Sherlock Holmes

Warner Bros. Pictures

For a while there, Sherlock Holmes had James Cameron outwitted. But only for a while.

Cameron's Avatar ended up the biggest, fattest movie of a big, fat box-office weekend, with an estimated $75 million Friday-Sunday. The Robert Downey Jr.-ized Sherlock Holmes finished, but didn't settle for, second, with a bigger-than-expected $65.3 million.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel ($50.2 million) and Meryl Streep's It's Complicated ($22.1 million) got their share of holiday joy, as well.

Stay tuned for the complete Top 10 standings.
