Snow White Is Fairest At US Box Office

Despite fears that it might fizzle at the box office, Snow White And The Huntsman proved resilient, snagging first place in the US this weekend with a decent $56.2 million. That forced Men In Black 3 down to second place, with the threequel earning $29.3 million in its second weekend, a relatively small drop of 46%. In third, current chart cash champ The Avengers scored $20.2 million despite having been out for five weeks. The movie is now up to $552.7 million in America and is the third highest grossing film in the worldwide rankings.

Fourth place went to Battleship with $4.8 million and The Dictator rounds out the top five with $4.7 million. Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest has now made $50.8 million in the US.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel continued to show real power among the indie releases, adding more cinemas and jumping back up the charts to sixth and $4.6 million. That put it ahead of What To Expect When You’re Expecting, which held on to seventh with $4.4 million and Dark Shadows, which fell to eighth and $3.8 million. Chernobyl Diaries screamed down the charts, falling from fifth to ninth and $3 million, with new, limited release arrival For Greater Glory, which chronicles the Cristeros war in Mexico, at 10th. The movie took $1.8 million despite only arriving on 757 screens.
