North American box office: ‘Alice’ magically successful

A quick look at last week’s box office as we head into the new weekend (this is where losing a day early in the week leaves me — late late late):

1. Alice in Wonderland: $62.7 million (2nd week; drops 46%)
2. Green Zone: $14.3 million (NEW)
3. She’s Out of My League: $9.8 million (NEW)
4. Shutter Island: $8.14 million (4th week; drops 38%)
5. Remember Me: $8.09 million (NEW)

actual numbers, not estimates
I’m majorly depressed that the not-very-good-at-all Alice is shortly going to surpass Batman to become Tim Burton’s highest-grossing movie ever. I want him to make more movies like Ed Wood and Sweeney Todd, and instead we can expect his 3D IMAX steampunk reimagining of Peter Rabbit. And dear god, I hope I haven’t just given anyone any ideas…

It’s interesting that the presence of Robert Pattinson in Remember Me wasn’t enough to catapult that flick to a huge opening. Perhaps his fans aren’t really his fans but Edward Cullen’s, instead?

Brooklyn’s Finest crashed 67 percent in its second week. That’s too bad. Maybe it should have been in 3D…
