Prometheus doesn’t reach the US until next weekend, leaving the box office clear for Snow White And The Huntsman to take a big bite out of the US box office with $56 million in its first three days. While that’s not exceptional, for a film that isn’t a sequel it’s certainly not a bad start at all, especially considering it’s ahead of the first three day take of last week’s Men In Black III.
It probably helped that it was the only big new release, although the likes of The Avengers had decent holdovers too. Indeed The Avengers has now taken over $550 million at the US box and with more than $1.3 billion worldwide, has overtaken the final Harry Potter movie to become the third highest grossing movie ever.
The only other new entry in the US top 10 was the Mexican historical epic For Greater Glory, which took a rather tepid $1.8 million. Take a look below for the full top 10 for the weekend of June 1st-3rd.
|Rank||Title||Weekend Gross (millions)||Total Gross to date (millions)|

|7||What To Expect When You’re Expecting||$4.4||$23.8|
