Will Smith has done it again! “Men in Black 3″ debuted at the box office this weekend, stealing the #1 spot from “The Avengers.”
Taking home $55 million domestically, the film battled the superheros this Memorial Day weekend.
Disney’s “The Avengers” grew its three-week domestic total to an unbelievable $514 million.
“Chernobyl Diaries” was a complete flop this weekend, barely claiming the #5 slot with $8 million.
“Men in Black 3″ actually did not perform as well as its predecessors, as both the first and second films opened with just over $50 million when ticket prices were cheaper than today.
“Battleship” will continue to drift off of the domestic front in the weeks ahead. So far, “The Avengers” and “Men in Black 3″ are the only noteworthy successes at the summer box office.
Will Smith’s threequel is expected to surpass $202 million worldwide by the end of this Memorial Day weekend due to the film’s popularity in Asia.
