Today is the day Tim Burton becomes a very rich man. Analysts are expecting Burton’s latest film, Alice in Wonderland, to cross the one billion dollar mark today. Pulling in $332 million in the United States, and another $667 million internationally, the film has quickly joined an elite group. The only other films to reach one billion worldwide are: Avatar, Titanic, The Lord of the Rings: The Return Of The King, The Dark Knight and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
Quite honestly I’m pretty shocked. Not only did I not enjoy Alice in Wonderland but it is far from Burton’s best work. When it came out I doubt anyone predicted it would gross one billion dollars. What do you guys think? Did you expect this? Did you enjoy the film? As always, let us know in the comments.
