Weekend Box Office: Alice stays strong ($62.7M); Disappointing debuts for Green Zone ($14.3M) and other new releases

Based on the final actual studio numbers, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland increased slightly from the studio estimates, grossing  $62.714 million from 3,728 theaters (a decline of just 46% from the weekend prior, a solid number for a blockbuster film). The four new releases were led by the disappointing Green Zone, which finished with a very weak $14.309 million, and followed by She’s Out of My League (#3 / $9.775M), Remember Me (#5 / $8.089M) and Our Family Wedding (#6 / $7.63M). Alice in Wonderland out-grossed the combined weekend box office of those four new releases by nearly $23M ($62.714M vs. $39.804M).  Even more impressive, the film out-grossed the combined weekend box office of films in the #2-#8 spots by nearly $4M (62.714M vs. $58.946M).

Rounding out the top 5 was Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island which finished in fourth place and ahead of both Remember Me and Our Family Wedding, with $8.144M, pushing its 24-day domestic cume to a respectable $108.012 million. Avatar finished in seventh place for the weekend (its first time outside the top five), but still managed a very respectable $6.526M. Despite shedding another 445 theaters — the film is now playing in just 1,718 theaters — Avatar only declined by only 19.6% this weekend. Total domestic cume for the film now stands at $730.270 million. Head on over the jump for the weekend chart.

Friday Box Office Estimates (March 12, 2010): $17.4M for Alice; Weak opening for Green Zone ($5.0M) and other new releases

Although there were four films that opened on Friday Alice in Wonderland was expected to easily beat the competition, and it did exactly that…and then some.  ‘Alice’ grossed an estimated $17.4M on Friday from 3,728 theaters ($4,667 per theater average), pushing its 8-day domestic cume to $164.025M. What’s more impressive, however, is that the film grossed more on Friday than the next four films — all new releases — combined (est. $14.4M).

Alice’ should do a healthy $57-62M this weekend which would land it well past $200 million by the end of Sunday. Head on over the jump for more analysis and the daily chart.
