Hollywood blockbuster "Avatar" continued to remain the most-watched movie in Korea last week, taking command of the box office for the sixth weekend in a row, according to official box office figures on Monday.

Statistics by the Korean Box Office Information System (KOBIS) showed that the sci-fi action flick drew in 633,881 viewers from January 22 to 24, totalling close to 10.3 million viewers since the film's opening in mid-December.

The James Cameron pic, currently the sixth most-watched movie in Korea's history after "The Host", "The King and the Clown", "Taegukgi", "Haeundae" and "Silmido", is now just about 80,000 viewers away from moving a step up the chart.

Newly-released Korean comedy "Attack the Gas Station 2" entered the weekend box office in second place with 303,731 viewers while the action comedy film "JEON WOO CHI : The Taoist Wizard" dropped a spot to No. 3 with 296,978 viewers.

Rounding off the top five slots were the Korean movie "No Mercy" in fourth with 123,256 viewers and the animated picture "Astro Boy" with 80,795 viewers.

Other movies that were included in the top ten were "Paranormal Activity", "Bodyguards and Assassins", "500 Days of Summer", "The Princess and the Frog" and "Sherlock Holmes".
