‘The Avengers’ loses top box office spot ! New No.1

The suits have knocked off the superheroes at the box office.

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones’ sequel “Men in Black 3″ debuted as the No. 1 movie over Memorial Day weekend with $55 million domestically from Friday to Sunday.

That bumps Disney’s “The Avengers” into second-place after three blockbuster weekends on top for the superhero sensation. “The Avengers” took in $37 million over the three days to push its domestic total to $514 million and become only the fourth movie ever to top half a billion dollars.

Distributor Sony estimates that by the end of the four-day holiday weekend Monday, “Men in Black 3” will have pulled in $70 million domestically and $202 million worldwide.

Universal’s “Battleship” was No. 3 in its second weekend with $10.8 million, raising its domestic earnings to $44.3 million. Paramount’s comedy “The Dictator” took in $9.6 million to finish fourth in its second weekend and lift its total to $41.5 million.

The Warner Bros. horror tale “Chernobyl Diaries” opened at No. 5 with $8 million.

“Men in Black 3” launched with a bit more cash than its two predecessors, which both had opening weekends of just above $50 million.

But the original “Men in Black” debuted in 1997 and “Men in Black II” premiered in 2002, when admission prices were much lower than today’s. That means “Men in Black 3” sold fewer tickets than the previous installments.

Chris Brown Disses Rihanna After She Unfollowed Him On Twitter .

Chris Brown, Rihanna

Rihanna has some interesting priorities. The ‘Where Have You Been’ singer, who’s been ill enough to get hooked up to an IV lately, has finally cut off social media contact with ex Chris Brown. It wasn’t the fact that he beat her until she was bruised and bloody back in ’09 that did the trick, nor was it his heavily photographed romance with current flame Karrueche Tran.

What did it take for Rihanna to leave Breezy’s Twitter be? It was a thinly-veiled diss track.

Brown released a freestyle set to Kanye West and DJ Khaled‘s collaboration ‘Way Too Cold‘ (formerly ‘Theraflu‘). While he never says RiRi’s name in the track, TMZ reports that she unfollowed him hours after the song hit the Web, leading fans to suspect that she thinks the song is about her. And if that’s the case, the picture it paints isn’t pretty, as Brown raps, “Don’t f— with my old b— it’s like a bad fur / Every industry n—- done had her / Shook the tree like a pumpkin just to smash her / B—- is breaking codes, but I’m the password.”

Shortly after her highly visible unfollow, Rihanna tweeted:

” Aw, poor dat #neaux1currrrr ”

Shortly thereafter, Brown unfollowed Rihanna as well.

The moves are particularly surprising following Rihanna wishing Brown a public happy birthday tweet on May 5, let alone the controversy the tumultuous two caused when they released their ‘Birthday Cake’ and ‘Turn Up the Music’ remixes. We’re guessing any hope for a public reunion, whether pop or personal, isn’t likely to happen again soon.

Rihanna was anything but shy Thursday at the L.A. premiere of “Battleship,” donning a white, thigh-high slit dress. “I’ve gotta hold on to my outfit a little tighter than usual,” she joked to Access Hollywood. It was the singer’s first appearance since she was treated for the flu with an IV earlier this week. “I’m a lot better now… I had a couple days to rest and get rehydrated,” she said. “…I feel great.” In “Battleship” (out May 18), the singer makes her acting debut as a female sailor. “I didn’t know if I was gonna be any good or like it,”Rihanna told Access. “But I tried it thanks to [director] Peter Berg and Universal, and it has been really tremendous, this experience.”

Rihanna Pushes to Play Whitney Houston on the Big Screen

She’s a woman of many different looks, but could one of them be a version of Whitney Houston?

Rihanna thinks so. Rihanna hopes so. With rumors swirling that a Whitney biopic is in the works, the singer made it clear in an interview with The Press Association this week that she’d love to take on the iconic big screen challenge.

“That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do because I would want to really pull it off,” Rihanna said. “That’s a huge, huge role and whoever does it has to do a good job.”

Added Rihanna, who is reportedly being considered for the role, along with Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson and others:

“My first song that I remember falling in love with was a Whitney Houston song – ‘I Will Always Love You.’ It was really inspiring and it made me develop a passion for music, so really she’s partly responsible for me being here in this industry.”

Rihanna will make her big screen debut this month in Battleship, which opens on April 11.
