The Weekend Winner is a weekly update here on Caught on Set. Every Monday we will post pictures from the set of the movie that wins the box office battle over the weekend.
Snow White and The Huntsman is this weekend's box office winner. The new take on the classic tale took the number one spot by pulling in more than $56 million over it's first three days. It beat last week's number one movie MIB 3 by nearly $30 million despite playing on 500 less screens. From Boxofficemojo.com:
1 Snow White and the Huntsman
2 MIB 3 $29,300,000
3 Marvel's The Avengers $20,273,000
4 Battleship $4,810,000
5 The Dictator $4,725,000
Although the film still has quite a ways to go before catching The Avengers, $56 million is quite an impressive pull especially during the first week of June. The biggest surprise of the weekend was Wes Anderson's newest Moonrise Kingdom. it only grossed $849,000, good for 13th place, but it did so on only 16 screens. It's $53,063 per screen average was by far the best of the weekend.
