Alice in Wonderland destroyed everything in it’s path this weekend, easily making more than the rest of the top ten combined and probably even the top 20 combined. Tim Burton’s latest pulled in $116 million, making $41 million of that on opening day alone. In a distant second was the other new release, Brooklyn’s Finest, which made $13.3 million and just barely beating Shutter Island in it’s third week. The rest of the field suffered between 40%-50% drop offs, with the only exception being Crazy Heart. Four movies are opening this weekend but none really strong enough to take on Alice, especially if it maintains it’s momentum.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
