Box Office: 'Alice' eludes 'The Bounty Hunter'

bounty-hunter-320.jpgTim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" reigned supreme for the third weekend in a row.

Bringing in $34.5 million, "Alice" stayed atop the U.S. box office. It's grand total now is at $265.7 million, so only $450 million to go before it catches "Avatar."

Coming in at second place was "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," which opened to $21.8 million, besting the Jennifer Aniston-Gerard Butler comedy "The Bounty Hunter" by $800,000. "The Bounty Hunter" opened to $21 million.

"Repo Men," the action movie starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker (which is unfortunately not a sequel to the 1984 movie starring Emilio Estevez) took fourth with only $6.2 million.

"The Runaways," the Joan Jett-Cherie Curry biopic starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning, opened with a weak $803,629, but was only released in 244 theaters nationwide.

Ben Stiller's "Greenberg" opened in only three theaters and pulled in $120 K, which is a good sign for the dramedy about neurotic man who sabotages his love life with his sarcasm.

The Top 10 was as follows:

1. "Alice in Wonderland," $34.5 million.

2. "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," $21.8 million.

3. "The Bounty Hunter," $21 million.

4. "Repo Men," $6.2 million.

5. "She's Out of My League," $6 million.

6. "Green Zone," $5.96 million.

7. "Shutter Island," $4.8 million.

8. "Avatar," $4 million.

9. "Our Family Wedding," $3.8 million.

10. "Remember Me," $3.3 million.
