Snow White and the Huntsman

Queen of Money: A dark fairy tale ruled them all, as Snow White and the Huntsman grossed an estimated $56.26 million to win the weekend box office race. Last week’s champ, Men in Black III, fell about 46% (or less than expected), reaping $29.3 million. Business for The Avengers was down about the same amount, which translated into $20.3 million ($552.7 million domestic total so far). Debuting period drama For Greater Good managed only $1.8 million.

Sci-Fi Scores: Overseas, Men in Black III hauled in another $79.1 million in 90 markets; its foreign total has now pushed past $275 million. Opening in 15 countries one week ahead of its debut in the U.S. and Canada, Ridley Scott’s Prometheus made $35 million. Movie attendance for the balance of the month is expected to be lower than usual due to the heavily-watched European soccer championships, which means Prometheus (and others) won't open in many territories until later in the sumer..

Pirates and Buried Treasure, Oh My!: After fashioning a new version of Sherlock Holmes, Guy Ritchie is ready to update Long John Silver. He’s now attached to direct Treasure Island, based on the classic swashbuckling pirate adventure novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. More than 50 film and TV adaptations have been made of the source material, most recently a British mini-series airing just a few months ago; there's no hint so far just how "modern" Ritchie might make it.

Bat TV: At last night’s MTV Movie Awards, Christopher Nolan introduced new footage from The Dark Knight Rises. In addition, a new TV spot appeared. Need we say more? [The Playlist]
