Alice in Wonderland has kept its place at the top of the US box office chart for a second week.
Tim Burton's movie has taken $62m (£41m) in the last three days alone and is well ahead of Matt Damon's Iraq war movie, Green Zone, which took second spot with $14.5m (£9.6m).
Romantic movies She's Out of My League and Remember Me were hot on its heels, taking $9.6m (£6.4m) and $8.1m (£5.4m) respectively while Martin Scorsese thriller Shutter Island was in fifth place. The shocker stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Marshal Teddy Daniels.
He is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a mental health hospital.
Our Family Wedding, featuring Ugly Betty star, America Ferreira, debuted at number six ahead of James Cameron's Avatar, now at seven.
Eighth and ninth place were taken by police movies - Brooklyn's Finest, starring Richard Gere, Ethan Hawke and Don Cheadle, and comedy Cop-Out, starring Bruce Willis.
Horror movie The Crazies rounded out the top 10 - it follows the inhabitants of a small Iowa town suddenly plagued by insanity and then death after a mysterious toxin contaminates their water supply.
