Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland obliterated the competition this weekend at the Box Office, exceeding all expectations with $116.3 in domestic earnings alone.  This sets a March Box Office record for biggest opening ever.  The Buena Vista film wowed audiences in 3-D, proving that the strategy for a delayed release post-Avatar was actually a smart idea.  Read my review of it here.

Action drama Brooklyn's Finest debuted in distant second spot with $13.5 million in ticket sales, just edging out Scorcese's Shutter Island, which is still showing a lot of staying power.  Internationally, it has grossed $130 million in only three weeks of release.  Mighty impressive.

The Crazies slips to sixth spot this week, but has actually proven to be a profitable investment for Overture Films with $27 million in earnings to date.  Crazy Heart continues to perform very well in  ninth spot all based on Jeff Bridges' Oscar buzz.  The film has almost surpassed $30 million in earnings, having been made for only $7 million.  He'll more than likely take a golden statue home tonight.
