'Snow White' Kills at the Box Office

The Universal film does better than expected.

The Universal Pictures version of the Snow White saga had a "better than expected North American debut," according to a movie industry analyst, and is the most-popular movie this weekend.

"Snow White And The Huntsman" is estimated to deal about $56.3 million in tickets this weekend by Universal, according to estimates gathered by Hollywood.com. Its worldwide opening weekend cumulative sales were pegged to come in at about $95.6 million.

Last week's big debut, "Men In Black 3," was on track for $29.3 million in sales this weekend, and a two week gross of $112.3 million.

The year's big blockbuster, "The Avengers," became the third-highest grossing movie in Hollywood history when it passed the half-billion dollar domestic waterline. It is in third place now with a weekend take of $20.3 million and a five-week domestic running total of $552.7 million.

Worldwide, "The Avengers" is estimated to have taken in $1.4 billion.   Making up the remaining 10 most-popular movies in the United States and Canada, as estimated by the studios and collated by Hollywood.com, were "Battleship" ($4.8 million), "The Dictator" ($4.8 million), "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" ($4.5 million), "What To Expect When You Are Expecting" ($4.4 million), "Dark Shadows" ($3.9 million), "Chernobyl Diaries" ($3 million), and "For Greater Glory" (debuting at $1.8 million).
