Men In Black 3 Beats The Avengers

Finally, a new movie managed to remove The Avengers at the top spot at the box office.  And that movie is the Will Smith vehicle Men In Black 3, which grossed about $55 million. Sony is expecting $70 million over the full Memorial Day Weekend.  However, the box office is actually down from last year by about 30% when The Hangover 2 made $86 million from Friday to Sunday.

Despite it's second place finish, The Avengers is up to $514 million, meaning it is sitting just behind The Dark Knight's $533 million for third place on the all time domestic list.  It has also made $1.3 billion worldwide, sitting right behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2's $1.33 billion on the all time list.  So, it should move into third place on both fronts soon.

Oh yeah, and then there's that movie Battleship, which dropped almost 60% this weekend to $10.8 million, which despite it's decent overseas gross, will still become a big loss for Universal.
