So much for 'Avatar's' record opening for a 3-D movie. Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' set opening weekend records for both IMAX and 3-D while taking in an estimated total of $116.3 million in ticket sales between Friday and Sunday midnight. It is the sixth biggest domestic opening in history, easily beating 'Avatar's' $77 million tally. Yet even 'Alice's' whopping $210.3 million international weekend showing fell well short of matching 'Avatar's $242 million worldwide opening weekend total.

The combination live action/CGI film scored a lukewarm consensus critics' review on Metacritic.com (53 out of 100) with some critics pleading for a trial separation between Burton and Johnny Depp, whose performance as the Mad Hatter is his sixth for the director since 'Edward Scissorhands.' Moviegoers obviously disagree and with 'Alice' playing in 3-D in more than 2,200 theaters, they figure to disagree for a quite a while. So much for 'Avatar's' record opening for a 3-D movie.

The biggest victim of 'Alice's' success is 'Avatar,' which had to surrender its hold on the 3-D theaters around the country where it had earned the bulk of its first $710 million. James Cameron's juggernaut fell to fifth place with a $7.7 million take.

Antoine Fuqua's 'Brooklyn Finest' opened in second place with $13.5 million, a little more than the opening weekend gross for Fuqua's 2001 police drama 'Training Day.' Martin Scorsese's 'Shutter Island,' which topped the previous two weekends, dropped two spots to third, with $13.3 million. In fourth is the police action parody 'Cop Out', with $9.1 million.
