A little while ago, Variety reported that James Cameron’s Avatar had grossed $77.3 million over the weekend, which is up from the $72 million originally reported. Why is that a big deal? Well, because it means the film has now beaten I Am Legend ($77.2 million) for the best ever December weekend opening. These numbers come despite the fact that there was a major snow storm on the East Coast that kept a lot of people away from theaters.
