Many parents continued to bring their kids to see "Alice in Wonderland" over the weekend. I ended up seeing it myself and thought it was decent. See it in 2D though, the 3D is terrible and annoying.

"Alice in Wonderland" has already cleared $50 M more than "A Christmas Carol," and it only took ten days to get there.

Many of the films from the previous weekend did well against the new films such as "She's Out of My League" and "Our Family Wedding" (though the latter didn't have a grand opening).

"Green Zone" beat out the new films by making enough green to stay out of "She's Out of My League's" league while "Remember Me" won't be remembered on the Top Ten for long with newer films coming in next weekend to rid the board of the petering out films.

Next weekend we have a rom-com, a children's film and an action flick. Can any of these become top of the heap and beat out "Alice in Wonderland"?
