Alice in Wonderland garnered the sixth-largest weekend box office debut of all time despite tepid reviews this weekend, even cruising past all-time champ Avatar’s opening numbers.

Tim Burton’s redux of the classic Lewis Carroll tale, starring Johnny Depp, charmed audiences into coughing up $116.3 million in the US and Canada alone, totaling $210.3 million worldwide. The film shattered 3D, IMAX and first quarter opening numbers records during a relatively quiet period for films amid the frenzy of awards season. –AHMED MORI
