James Cameron's Avatar topped the North American box office at the weekend, notching up $77 million according to internet reports.

The film, a love story set on a distant planet, accounted for about 59 per cent of the weekend box office, according to industry tracker Exhibitor Relations.

Analysts believe the figures for Avatar would have been even higher, however it is thought that the record snowfalls on large areas of the eastern United States stopped many movie-goers.

Disney's The Princess and the Frog took second place, earning $12.2 million.
