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.

You need to check into rehab if you think TA2 isn't going to make a dent in AVATAR 2's box office

 

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
