Opening by itself this weekend, Martin Scorsese’s mindbending thriller Shutter Island, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, had a big take at the box office, bringing in $40.2 million, easily outpacing last week’s big holiday hits. Valentine’s Day dropped almost 70%, although one might expect that, seeing as how the holiday’s over and everyone’s sick of candy hearts and mush.

3. Avatar – $16.1m
4. Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief – $15.3m
