"Avatar" Wins All-Time Domestic Box-Office Record

Twentieth Century Fox

The alien flick topped the box office for the fifth straight weekend.

James Cameron now holds the top two spots on the all-time domestic box-office chart.

Cameron's 3-D sci-fi epic "Avatar" has raked in $601.1 million (U.S.) domestically,  beating "Titanic's" former record of $600.8 million, according to The Associated Press.

Just last week, "Avatar" reached the $2 billion mark, passing "Titanic's" $1.8 billion for the worldwide box-office record.

With that said, there is one more record for Cameron's latest smash hit to break  -- because of today's high admission prices,"Titanic" has still sold more tickets, according to The AP.
