3D Porn Movie Takes Down <i>Avatar</i> At Hong Kong Box Office

Avatar is the product of almost 20 years' worth of work on the part of director James Cameron. Untold millions were spent bringing the space-age 3D epic to screens, with reports pinning the budget to somewhere around the half-a-billion-dollar mark. It's the top-grossing movie of all time in the United States and it sets box office records wherever it goes, including opening day sales in Hong Kong of HK$2.6 million (about $335,000 in U.S. currency).

Now, a 3D porn film -- the world's first -- has taken it down. 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy opened in Hong Kong with ticket sales totaling HK$2.8 million, AFP reports. The film's total gross so far hovers around HK$15 million ($1.9 million U.S.). Demand is so high that an extended version of the movie has been announced for release in a few weeks, adding an additional 15 minutes to the running time.

And there you have it. Avatar was outsold by porn. News flash.
