Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland took the heads off of its competition again on Friday, earning an estimated $9.8 million entering its third weekend in theatres. The 3D flick held on to about 43% of last Friday’s grosses and is on track to add another $30 million to its coffers by Sunday. That’s bad news for the three new wide releases. Of those, The Bounty Hunter had the best showing. The Jennifer Aniston/Gerard Butler vehicle opened with an estimated $7.6 million – good enough for second place. Fox’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid, an adaptation of the children’s book series, wasn’t expected to take in more than $10 million for the entire weekend thanks to the family-siphoning power of Wonderland. After a better than expected Friday of $7.4 million, however, Wimpy now seems poised to overtake Bounty Hunter for the weekend’s second spot. Finally, things look bleak for Universal’s Repo Men. The high-concept action pic could only scrounge up $2.2 million from its 2,521 locations. Full details on all of the weekend’s releases when you check back tomorrow.
