Still from Snow White and The Huntsman
Exceeding expectations at the Box Office this weekend is Universal Pictures' Snow White and The Huntsman starring Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth. Although Reviews are mixed for the Film (52% on Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer), Audiences responded in a big way with it earning a stellar $56.1 million in its debut in 3,773 theatres.

Last week's Champion, MIB 3, slips to number two this weekend with $28 million for Sony Pictures and in two weeks of release, it has earned $112 million, good enough to edge-out the resilient Marvel's The Avengers which in its fifth week of release earns $19.8 million. The Blockbuster according to Deadline now is the number three highest-grossing Film of all time domestically behind Avatar and Titanic.

Universal Pictures' Battleship in a distant fourth with $4.7 million, followed by Paramount Pictures' The Dictator in sixth with $4.6 million and Lionsgate's What to Expect When You're Expecting in sixth with $4.5 million.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel continues to perform well in Limited Release for Fox Searchlight with $4.4 million this weekend from 1,294 theatres in its fifth week week.  

For Greater Glory starring Andy Garcia is the only other Film opening in the Top Ten this weekend earning $1.5 million from 575 theatres it does not have distribution in Canada.
