Snow White & the Huntsman Takes the Throne

The Charlize Theron Queened Snow White movie, featuring Bella Swan and Thor easily took the top spot at the box office this weekend with about $56 million (making much more than anticipated).  This also easily beats the $18.2 million from Julia Roberts' comedy take on the Snow White genre (Mirror Mirror), which came out earlier this year. In fact, Mirror Mirror made only $62.5 million in it's total domestic run, a feat in which Snow White & the Huntsman will surpass in another day or so.

Men In Black 3 had to settle for second with $29 million, making it tough to match it's $225 million budget.  However, with the help of the overseas market, this Will Smith adventure grossed $78.6 million, pushing its worldwide total to $387 million so far.

The Avengers continues to climb the all-time charts as it is now the third highest grossing movie domestically ($552.7 million) and also third highest grossing movie world wide ($1.355 billion), now only behind James Cameron's Avatar and Titanic on both fronts.
