‘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.
