Legend Banks Big at Int’l Box Office

Gross stands at $300 million+ worldwide

I honestly did not think I Am Legend was going to have the performance it is currently enjoying in theaters. But when I looked at the weekend numbers over the second holiday weekend, I’ll admit to being a bit surprised. (Don’t even get me started on Alvin and the Chipmunks.) “Legend” isn’t just kicking ass domestically – it’s huge overseas, apparently.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film was number one in 25 territories and, to date, has pulled in $126 million. Worldwide gross so far? $331.1 million.

This has to have Warner Bros. scrambling for sequel consideration.
