"Alice in Wonderland" has no equal competitor to push it aside from the top position at North American Box Office. In its second week, the adventure movie still becomes the champion at the chart though it has dropped about 46% in ticket sales.

The Tim Burton-directed movie that applies 3-D technology to attract audience rakes in $62.7 million on its second weekend, making a total of $209.3 million domestic gross so far. The amount has covered the production budget of $200 million.

Some of the following spots belong to newcomers. "Green Zone", which sees another collaboration from "Bourne" star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass, has become the runner-up with an approximately $14.3 million cume. Meanwhile, "She's Out of My League" steals the third place from former Box Office winner "Shutter Island" with $9.8 million tally. The Leonardo DiCaprio-starring thriller is now forced to drop two positions to the fifth, with an additional $8.1 million.

"Remember Me", which has "Twilight" actor Robert Pattinson starring as the major character, surprisingly does not soar high at the chart. The Summit Entertainment's drama only pulls in $8 million on its debut weekend, making it nab the fourth spot. Another newcomer which manages to enter the chart is "Our Family Wedding" which sits on the sixth place with $7.6 million revenue.

  1. "Alice in Wonderland" - $62.7 million
