Alice in Wonderland Remains A Top Again

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland remained at the top spot in it's third weekend with almost $35 million. It's worldwide total stands at $565.8 million. Diary of a Wimpy Kid edged out The Bounty Hunter for second.

Also, it surely looks like Green Zone's 6th place second weekend, with about $6 million ($24.7 million total), will not help Universal's downward trend. Especially when this film cost a reported $100 million. Their other big release this year, The Wolfman has made only $62 million domestically, against it's reported $150 million budget. Overseas is fairing slightly better, with about $75 million, giving it $137 million total. This is not the way they wanted to start off the new year.

Weekend Estimates:
Alice in Wonderland: $34.5 million ($265.8 million total)
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: $21.8 million ($21.8 million total)
The Bounty Hunter: $21 million ($21 million total)
Repo Men: $6.2 million ($6.2 million total)
She's Out of My League: $6 million ($20 million total)

Previous Post
A few new movies open this weekend, trying to best Alice in Wonderland. Honestly, it looks like a dumping ground weekend.

The Bounty Hunter
Why it might be a hit: It's a romantic comedy, sort of.
Why it might tank: It doesn't look comedic or likable.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Why it might be a hit: Has a built in audience.
Why it might tank: Might not have a big enough built in audience.

Repo Men

Why it might be a hit: It's a futuristic Sci-fi film.
Why it might tank: Seems like one of those movies you'll have forgotten by next weekend.

My Predictions:
Alice in Wonderland: $32 million
The Bounty Hunter: $18 million
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: $14 million
Repo Men: $8 million
Green Zone: $7 million
