'Alice' #1, 'Bounty' #2 on Tuesday

on March 24, 2010 by Daniel Garris

Disney's Alice in Wonderland remained at the top of the box office on Tuesday with $2.68 million. The 3D blockbuster starring Johnny Depp was down 3 percent from Monday and down 55 percent from last Tuesday. After an amazing 17-day start, Alice in Wonderland has experienced some relative slowing each of the past two days, though it should also be noted that every film in wide release was down at least 45 percent from last Tuesday. The 19-day domestic total for Alice in Wonderland stands at a terrific $270.88 million, placing the film $29.12 million away from the $300 million mark.

The Bounty Hunter finished in second for a second straight day. The Sony release starring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler grossed $1.59 million, which was up a solid 9 percent over Monday. While reviews for the film have been terrible, the film is holding up fairly well so far during the midweek. The Bounty Hunter has grossed $23.72 million in five days of release, placing it 32 percent behind the pace of last year's The Ugly Truth and 3 percent behind last year's Law Abiding Citizen.

Fox's Diary of a Wimpy Kid remained in third with $0.92 million. The adaptation of the popular illustrated novel was down 11 percent from Monday, representing the day's largest daily decline among wide releases. Diary of a Wimpy Kid opened above expectations over the weekend, but is showing early signs of being front-loaded for a family film. Diary of a Wimpy Kid has grossed $24.09 million in five days and should pick back up over the weekend.

Universal's Green Zone was up two spots and up 10 percent to place in fourth. The big-budget action-thriller grossed $0.630 million, which allowed it to squeak past She's Out of My League by a microscopic $430 for the day. Green Zone was down 51 percent from last Tuesday and has now grossed a disappointing $26.05 million through twelve days of release.

Paramount's She's Out of My League rounded out the day's top five with $0.630 million. The modestly budgeted comedy was up 6 percent from Monday and down 46 percent from last Tuesday, which actually represented one of the day's stronger holds among wide releases. The 12-day total for She's Out of My League stands at $20.96 million, as the film continues to perform in line with expectations.

Universal's Repo Men continued to lose momentum on Tuesday. The poorly received sci-fi film was down two spots and down 2 percent from Monday. Repo Men finished in sixth for the day with $0.592 million, bringing the film's five-day start to a lackluster $7.32 million.
