"Alice in Wonderland" still comes out unchallenged at North American Box Office. In three consecutive weeks, the 3-D adventure movie leads the chart despite the fact that its domestic gross gradually decreases. This Tim Burton-directed film pulls in $34.2 million this weekend, 45.5% less than its last week cume of $62.7 million.

Internationally, "Alice in Wonderland" also affirms itself as a champion. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Johnny Depp-starring flick collects $47 million from 6,687 screens in 49 territories. So, far, the movie has raked in $300 million overseas, making a current worldwide tally of $565.8 million.

"The Bounty Hunter", in the meantime, does not manage to create a strong competition at the domestic chart. The action comedy which stars Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler only sits on the third slot after debuted on March 19 with $20.7 million.
