Weekend Box Office: Here Come The Men In Black

After dominating the box office for three weeks, The Avengers was finally bumped off the top of the list by MIB 3. Will Smith’s latest alien-battling, action-comedy took in $70 million over the long holiday weekend, which is fairly impressive considering that the last MIB movie came out nearly a decade ago. It wasn’t all bad news for The Avengers. With an estimated $46.9 million earned over the weekend, the movie has set a new record by earning more than $500 million in just 23 days. The movie should pass The Dark Knight ($533.3 million) by Friday and move into third place on the all-time domestic chart.
