Could this weekend be lucky No. 7 at the box office for James Cameron’s Avatar? Possibly, as it seems that the masterpiece could yet again top the weekend’s box office. But for the first time since it premiered, the flick has a formidable foe in Mel Gibson’s Edge of Darkness. EW’s box office guru Nicole Sperling predicts that the two will battle but that ultimately Avatar will prevail over Darkness. Sperling also sees When in Rome, Legion, and The Tooth Fairy tangled in the $6-8 million range and battling for spots three through five.
