Overtaking "I Am Legend" for the first time since both films bowed on December 14th, live-action/CGI hybrid "Alvin and the Chipmunks" grossed an estimated $30 million from 3,484 theaters for a total of $142.4 million, outpacing all expectations and positioning the family title to be among the top 10 grossing films of the year.

"Legend" has already accomplished that feat. Sci-fi thriller, toplining Will Smith, grossed an estimated $27.5 million from 3,636 theaters over the weekend for a total of $194.6 million. That's a decline of just 18%. Film, coming in No. 3 for the weekend, will easily jump the $200 million box office mark today.

Fox Searchlight's quirky dramedy "Juno" - playing in only 998 theaters - came in No. 5 for the week, grossing an impressive $10.3 million in its fourth weekend for a per location average of $10,321 and a total of $25.7 million. "Juno" was up a whopping 201% from the previous weekend, when it likewise played in 998 locations.

The Fox empire also took the No. 6 spot with Christmas day opener "Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem," which grossed an estimated $10 million from 2,611 theaters for a total of $26.9 million in the sequel's first six days.

Landing at No. 7 for the weekend was "Water Horse: Legend of the Deep," which grossed an estimated $9.2 million from 2,772 theaters for a toal of $16.8 million. Like "Aliens," pic opened on Christmas.

"The Great Debaters" wasn't able to crack the top 10 list, coming in No. 11 for the weekend. Film, directed by and starring Denzel Washington, grossed an estimated $6.3 million from 1,171 theaters for a total of $13.5 million.

Debuting on Christmas day, Paul Thomas Anderson's "There Will Be Blood" scored the best per screen average of the year - $93,000 - when grossing an estimated $185,525 from two theaters in New York and L.A over the weekend.

Warners also saw a sterling per screen average for "The Bucket List," which is playing in a limited run before going wide on January 11th. Pic, opening on Christmas, grossed an estimated $323,000 over the weekend from 16 theaters for a per location average of $20,188 and six day total of $618,152.
