Box Office Results: ‘Dragon’ slays rest of competition

Studio Estimates for March 26-28:

1.  How to Train Your Dragon – $43.7 million
2.  Alice in Wonderland – $17 million
3.  Hot Tub Time Machine – $14 million
4.  The Bounty Hunter – $12 million
5.  Diary of a Wimpy Kid – $10.1 million

I sense a trend that will be taking over the movie scene for the rest of time. Huge blockbusters will be in 3-D and will dominate the box office. Alice in Wonderland has grossed a domestic total of appromixately $293 million in four weeks, including the $17.7 million it grossed this weekend that landed them the runner-up spot. And in its 3-D debut, How to Train Your Dragon snagged the top spot with $43.7 million. With films like Toy Story 3 and Harry Potter’s final installment to be released in 3-D, expect ticket prices to soar. Is this goodbye to 2-D as we know it?

Hot Tub Time Machine managed to be the top grossing 2-D film of the weekend with $14 million. And rounding out the Top 5 were The Bounty Hunter with $12 million and Diary of a Wimpy Kid with $10.1 million.

On Wednesday, the most recent of Nicolas Sparks adaptation hits the screen starring tween idol Miley Cyrus, The Last Song. And then on Friday two more wide releases hit the theaters: Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too and another 3-D film, Clash of the Titans.
