Snow White And The Huntsman Tops US Weekend B-O

JUNE 4, 2012 - Snow White and the Huntsman played well across North America and easily claimed the top spot at the box office this weekend. MIB 3 and The Avengers did fine business in second and third slots, while Mexican historical drama For Greater Glory wasn't all that great in its nationwide release. The Top 12 earned an estimated US$135.5 million this weekend, which is off 12 percent from the same period last year.

Snow White and the Huntsman opened at 3,773 locations and grossed a strong estimated US$56.26 million. That's the fourth-highest debut this year behind The Avengers, The Hunger Games and The Lorax, and above last weekend's MIB 3. It's also more than Universal's Battleship has made through 17 days (US$55.1 million), and is close to Mirror Mirror's entire run (US$62.5 million). Among other comparable titles, Snow White obviously didn't come close to Alice in Wonderland's US$116.1 million, though it was a hair ahead of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (US$55 million).
