Welcome back to the Box Office Report where we'd eat a red apple if Charlize Theron told us to.
1. Snow White and the Huntsman (Universal): $56.3 million in 3,773, theaters
Earlier this week, Vulture reported that if Snow White wasn't a success then heads would likely roll at Universal. They movie cost upwards of $170 million to make (rumours say it's closer to $190 million) and Universal was expecting a $35-40 million opening weekend. Even that kind of haul wouldn't guarantee job security. So, yay! $56 million is nothing to sneeze at. It helps that it's the only major release this weekend, unless you count Pirahna 3DD. Our Richard Lawson thought Snow White was only fair, but he's not as big a Kristen Stewart fan as we are. Grantland's Zach Baron wrote a brilliant take on what makes Stewart so polarizing among fans and critics alike.
2. Men In Black III (Sony): $29.3 million in 4,248 theaters [Week 2]
We had loose plans to see this with our dad this week (hi dad) but we couldn't get our act together on time. Or, maybe we did go and see it, and it was so bad we used a Neuralyzer to forgive and forget everyone involved. We still like Josh Brolin, so.
