Here come the Men in Black!
After spending a month on top, it looks like Joss Whedon’s Avengers will pass the top-earner torch to a trio of more inconspicuously dressed galaxy defenders.
Men in Black 3 is expected to earn around $100 million this weekend, and that would almost assuredly dethrone Robert Downey Jr. and his Super Friends.
Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and newcomer Josh Brolin should all be very proud — there aren’t too many big budget franchises that can take a decade long break between sequels and still find great success.
The Fresh Prince should be especially thrilled, though he never really fell from the spotlight this is actually his first film in four years. That’s a really long hiatus for one of the biggest names in the biz.
Just because Men in Black should get racks on racks on racks this weekend doesn’t mean the Hulk should hang his big green head in shame.
Avengers already earned $1.2 bil and will soon pass Harry Potter 7.2 to become the third most successful film ever released.
