For a third straight weekend, Alice in Wonderland topped the box office with a very strong $34.5 million, becoming Tim Burton’s highest grossing film ever at $265 million.

In the runner-up spot was the family-friendly Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which grossed $21.8 million. I thought because of Alice in Wonderland, there wouldn’t be that much of an audience for Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but I was wrong. I guess the children books were more popular than I exptected.

In third place was The Bounty Hunter with $21 million. It was a solid opening, but still was a slight disappointing when compared to past romantic comedies with higher opening grosses like The Ugly Truth ($27.6 million) and The Break-Up ($39.2 million). 

Rounding out the Top 5 were Repo Men with $6.2 million and She’s Out of My League with $6 million.

Check back on Friday for my new predictions when two new releases hit the theaters: Hot Tub Time Machine and How to Train Your Dragon. Both have the potential of finally taking the first spot away from Alice in Wonderland.
