A li'l weed was - once again! - found on a

Lil Wayne

tour bus. About 3 a.m. Friday, U.S. Border Patrol officers made a routine stop of LW's two buses, on their way to a concert in Laredo, Texas. But K-9 dog detectives sniffed some dank on

both

buses! Dank indeed was found, and LW and 12 of his entourage were detained. The concert had to be kicked to last night. LW and homies were released. But on Feb. 9, he'll be in NYC to be sentenced (possibly for up to a year) for illegal weapons possession stemming from a bus-related 2007 bust, and then there's controlled-substance badness over his head from several places. Bicycle, LW - hitchhike, pogo stick, space shuttle, do anything but get on that bus. . . . In further Lil Wayne news, Amazon.com mistakenly shipped out 500 copies of his much-delayed, much-anticipated album

Rebirth

, scheduled for a Feb. 1 release. Leaks are a tradition with LW albums, but this is a true Amazon mess-up.

'Avatar' rocks in 3-D

Not even The Storm of the Millennium (which is only nine years old, but still, c'mon, it was a pretty big storm) could keep

Avatar

from rippin' up the national box office. Preliminary studio figures say the 3-D extravaganza piled up $73 million Friday to yesterday, below expectations, but not bad given the weather. All numbers were down by snow. Debuting high but weak was

flick, in fourth place with 7 mils.

The Princess and the Frog hopped down into second with $12 mils, declining by almost half from its first week. The rest of the top 10: (3) The Blind Side, with $10 mils; (5) The Twilight Saga: New Moon, $4.7 mils; (6) Invictus, $4.14 mils; (7) A Christmas Carol (2009), $3.41 mils; (8) Up in the Air, $3.1 mils; (9) Brothers, $2.63 mils; and (10) Old Dogs, $2.29 mils.

We're gonna see a real duke-out next week. Avatar faces off against Sherlock Holmes, with Robert Downey Jr., Rachel McAdams, and Jude Law, and, ulp!, Nine, the star-infested musical with Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Fergie, Penélope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, and seemingly anyone else who asked. Worlds collide!
