‘Alice’ tops box office with $41 million

Disney pic on track to record breaking weekend

Disney scored mega numbers on Friday with their debut of Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” taking in an estimated $41 million on 3,728 screens.

The Johnny Depp starrer is on track to score one of the biggest weekend openings of all time for the January-March stretch, as well as the biggest debut of 2010.

The pic blew away its only major release debut competition, Antoine Fuqua’s “Brooklyn’s Finest,” by a long shot. Starring Ethan Hawke, Richard Gere and Don Cheadle, the Overture film collected about $5.2 million from 1,936 screens.

As for the rest of the box office, Paramount’s “Shutter Island” racked in an estimated $4 mil on 3,178 screens, while Warner Bros. comedic buddy flick “Cop Out” took in about $3 million on 3,150 screens. Overture’s “The Crazies” earned an estimated $2.5 million on 2,479 screens, giving it an almost 60% drop off its second week in theaters.

Fox’s “Avatar” took in an estimated $1.9 million on 2,163 screens, while Warner Bros. “Valentine’s Day” claimed the No. 7 spot with about $1.4 million on Friday on 3,040 screens.

Rounding out the bottom three are Fox’s “Percy Jackson,” with an estimate of $1.3 million on 2,994 screens, Relativity/Sony’s “Dear John,” with $1 mil on 2,496 screens and Universal’s “The Wolfman,” with about $500,000 on 1,289 screens.
