I said in my predictions this weekend's box office race could be close. Well, it looks like I was very wrong. Snow White and the Huntsman put up an estimated $20million on Friday alone! I didn't expect it to crack $40million for the whole weekend, and now it would appear to be a lock to pass $50mil. Very impressive; I guess I wasn't the only one who thought it looked very entertaining.
MIB 3, meanwhile put up a solid $8.3mil while the Avengers took in an additional $5.6mil which is enough to pass The Dark Knight for 3rd on the all-time domestic chart. I figured it would do well but if you told me in April that the Avengers would be top 3 all-time I would have called you nuts. Congrats to Whedon and Co.
