Tim Burton worked his magic again: ‘Alice in Wonderland’ made $201 million worldwide over the weekend

The Mad Hatter won big this weekend! Tim Burton‘s eye-popping fairytale film was the biggest domestic 3-D opening ever and the highest-grossing movie of 2010, reports Deadline.com. In the U.S., it made $41 million on Friday and $44.3 million on Saturday. The worldwide three-day total was a whopping $210 million.

The other movies in theaters this weekend could barely touch Alice: Brooklyn’s Finest made $13.1 million, and Shutter Island followed close behind at $13 million.

Reviews have been mixed, but that obviously hasn’t stopped the people from coming out to see their favorite stars like Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Anne Hathaway.
