It’s only the 3rd best December debut of all time, despite Avatar’s 3D ticket price premium. I Am Legend is tops at the box office in December, followed by The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King.

Fox executives are eagerly waiting for the East Coast snow to clear, with high hopes Avatar has legs and will continue to build steam and turn a blue weekend into box office gold.
