Alice In Wonderland held on to the number one spot in North America and swept past $200m as $62.7m raised the early running total to $209.3m.
Combined with the $221m international cumulative score, the film – now Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s biggest collaboration to date – has amassed more than $430m worldwide after two weekends.
The next three places went to new releases, led by Universal’s thriller Green Zone starring Matt Damon in second on a disappointing $14.3m. Paramount’s romantic comedy She’s Out Of My League opened third on $9.8m, and Summit Entertainment’s Robert Pattinson romantic drama Remember Me ranked fifth on $8.1m.
Paramount’s Martin Scorsese thriller Shutter Island crossed $100m in its fourth weekend, dropping one place to fouth on $8.1m for $108m. Fox Searchlight’s comedy Our Family Wedding with America Ferrera and Forest Whitaker opened in sixth place on $7.6m.
Brooklyn’s Finest fell six to eighth in its second weekend through Overture Films as $4.5m raised the running total to $21.5m. Overture’s The Crazies rounded out the top ten and has grossed $33.4m after three.
Summit’s re-release of The Hurt Locker capitalised on the film’s six-Oscar triumph last weekend, grossing a further $828,000 from 349 theatres for $15.7m. The film has already gone out on commercial DVD and completed its theatrical run last year, so expansion will be limited.
Next weekend’s wide releases are: Columbia’s action comedy The Bounty Hunter with Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston; Fox’s comedy Diary Of A Wimpy Kid; and Universal’s long gestating action sci-fi Repo Men with Jude Law and Forest Whitaker.
