The weekend's fantasy/supernatural films failed to break into the top spot in the President's Day/Valentine's Day box office, with Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief edging out The Wolfman for second place.

Percy Jackson took in an estimated $31.1 million domestically over three days to outpace The Wolfman, with $30.6 million, the Associated Press reported. Both opened on Friday.

Avatar stayed strong but fell to fourth place for the weekend, with $22 million, raising its domestic total to $659.6 million and its worldwide haul to $2.35 billion.

Not surprisingly, the top movie at the V-Day weekend box office was the romantic comedy Valentine's Day.
