Yuletide Box Office

End of the year film grosses have come to life, but no flick, apparently, gets to stay on top for long. Last week it was I am Legend. This week it's National Treasure Deux.

National Treasure Book of Repeats reaps $45.5 million in its debut weekend, while the mo-cap treasure I Am Legend drops 55.7% to #2 (not unusual for a horror flick) and reaps $34.2 million. The survivalist story now has $137.5 million in its lock box.

The ever-astounding Alvin and the Chipmunks declines a mere 34.5% to #3, collects $29 million and now stands just shy of $85 million.

Enchanted now lives at the seventh position and is within kissing distance of $100 million ($98.3 million at the end of this weekend.)

Lastly, #18 Bee Movie and #19 Beowulf appear to have run out of fuel. The Zemeckis epic has collected $80.4 million during its domestic run and Bee Movie is near the end of its tether with $123 million.

Just below them at #21? A reissue of The Polar Express which has garnered $1.7 million in 32 Imax 3-D outlets.
