Alice in Wonderland continued its domination of the box office for a third straight weekend as it brought in a solid $34.5M ($265.8M) to easily dispatch the surprisingly strong Diary of a Wimpy Kid ($21.8M) and the underperforming Bounty Hunter ($21M). Repo Men was even more of a disappointment as it only managed to gross a pathetic $6.5M. She's Out of My League held strong in its second weekend ($6M | $19.9M) while The Green Zone cratered ($5.9M | $24.7M).

The sturdy Shutter Island is still hanging around ($4.7M | $115.7M) as is the amazing Avatar ($4M | $736.8M) which enjoyed a 14th straight weekend in the top 10. The awful Our Family Wedding ($3.8M | $13.6M) and the inappropriate Remember Me ($3.3M | $13.9M) rounded out the top 10. In limited release, City Island enjoyed a strong debut ($17,500 per theater). Hubble 3D experienced similar success ($11,615 per), unlike The Runaways which was fairly flat in its first frame ($3291) .
