Just as millions of Americans prepare to gobble up turkey and stuffing this weekend, they'll no doubt be heading to their local cinemas to catch the latest and greatest cinematic side dishes offered up for the holiday season. What have audiences developed the most taste for over the years? Let's count 'em down:

#5) How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
With its $73.5 million five-day gross, this modern family mainstay starring Jim Carrey claims the fifth-best Thanksgiving weekend performance of all-time. That includes $52.1 million during its second weekend. In fact, for a non-opener, it was the best at the time of its release. Adjusted for inflation, that year 2000 gross would equal nearly $110 million today. The long-awaited live action adaptation was such a hit, it won its box office year with $260 million - a rarity for a holiday-themed movie (and the only one to do so since 1990's Home Alone).

#4) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 (2010)
The penultimate film of the Potter franchise marked the series return to the November release dates that made it famous early on. After taking a break for five years following Goblet of Fire's November debut, the first half of Deathly Hallows chimed in with $75 million (including $49.1 million during its sophomore weekend)...

Unless Cameron offers SMELL-O-VISION with AVATAR 2, It's not doing more than 400M Plus ..  And YES, I'll bet AVATAR 2 doesn't do more than at best 425M Domestic ... You need to check into rehab if you think TA2 isn't going to make a dent in AVATAR 2's box office

 

I'll be honest with you, I see Avatar 2 doing half of what the first did. Seriously, I think these sequels will start off below $400M and then just drop further.
