Romance proved to be a powerful foe for the epic “Avatar,” which has dominated the box office for the last seven weekends. The Lasse Hallstrom-directed romantic drama “Dear John” won the weekend in a big way, grossing an estimated $32.4 million and setting a record for the highest-grossing Superbowl Sunday frame in history.

“Avatar” fell to second place for the first time, dropping a still scant 25 percent to $23.6 million. The James Cameron film has now out-grossed every movie in the history of cinema (as long as we don’t adjust for inflation) with a domestic take of an astounding $630 million.

The other wide release, “From Paris With Love,” didn’t have nearly as an auspicious debut. The R-rated actioner from “Taken” director Pierre Morel mostly drew audiences interested in John Travolta’s turn as an over-the-top, gun-toting renegade CIA operative, yet earned only an estimated $8.1 million.

Much of “Dear John’s” success can be attributed to a successful marketing campaign targeted towards women, who comprised 84 percent of the audience. The movie, which was based on Nicholas Sparks’ novel, was financed entirely by Relativity Media, and distributed by Sony’s Screen Gems division. It bested the previous record held by 2008’s concert film “Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds” which opened to $31.1 million.

Four episodes into the series’ fourth season, the cable network has renewed the Playtone-produced show for a fifth season.

Big Love which centers on Utah native Bill Henrickson (Bill Paxton) as he balances the needs of his three wives (Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloe Sevigny, Ginnifer Goodwin) and their broods, drew 1.7 million viewers for its season premiere last month. That was up 49% from Season 3’s opener.

Despite facing the NFC Championship and the Grammys the past two Sundays, the modestly rated series is tracking 13% higher than last season.

“Love,” whose current story line centers on Henrickson running for office, will be getting “deeper and darker” in the second half of the season, according to creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer.

With four eventful seasons, the fifth cycle will take a breather, “settling into the stortytelling,” Olsen said. Added Scheffer, “We want to take the temperature of the marriages.”

With the exception of the departing Amanda Seyfried, the series’ core cast will come back for Season 5, with Olsen and Scheffer also mulling a possible return for new additions Zeljko Ivanek and Sissy Spacek.

“Love,” which earned its first best series Emmy nomination last year, is executive produced by Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman, David Knoller, Bernadette Caulfield, Olsen and Scheffer. (THR)

Continuing her promotional duties, Amanda Seyfried was spotted out and about in New York City earlier today (February 4).

The “Big Love” babe looked bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as she departed the PIX 11 Morning Show at CW studios in Manhattan.

Amanda has been promoting her new movie “Dear John,” out in theaters tomorrow, in which she plays a southern belle.

She explained, “My character is Savannah and she is a Charleston girl who is on her spring break, and she meets John in the surf.”

Her costar Channing Tatum added, “[I play] a soldier who is on leave for two weeks and meets the girl of his dreams, and has to leave and they have to try to keep their love alive, which does or does not happen.”
