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 The Avengers into second place after three blockbuster weekends. The Avengers took in $37 million over the three days to push its domestic total to $514 million and become only the fourth movie to top half a billion dollars. 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.
