Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart had plenty of reasons to celebrate at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night (June 3).
Not only did Stewart take home her [article id="1686402"]fourth consecutive Best Kiss[/article] award for her "Twilight" lip-lock with Robert Pattinson, but the trio's brand new movie, "Snow White and the Huntsman," topped the box office with a strong $56.3 million domestic opening, marking the year's fourth-largest behind only "The Avengers," "The Hunger Games" and "The Lorax."
The success bodes well for Stewart's post-"Twilight" future as well as Hemsworth's prospects outside of the Marvel Universe.
"Snow White and the Huntsman" had no problem overtaking the other Snow White-related movie released this year, "Mirror, Mirror," which took in $62.5 million during its entire theatrical run. Charlize Theron is also in "Prometheus," which opened overseas (ahead of the U.S.) to $35 million.
"Piranha 3DD" opened at just 86 locations, taking in $179,000. (By comparison, "Snow White and the Huntsman" opened at 3,773 locations.) The schlocky sequel was simultaneously released on video on demand services like iTunes. Low-budget horror films often depend on post-theatrical sales to turn a profit.
Last weekend's #1 movie, "Men in Black 3," dropped 46 percent with $29.3 million in its second weekend of release, for a $112.3 million domestic total.
"Marvel's The Avengers" was #3 at the box-office with a still strong $20.3 million — the biggest fifth weekend for any movie ever other aside from "Avatar," "Titanic" and "The Sixth Sense." Over the weekend, "The Avengers" became #3 on the all-time domestic list.
"Battleship" was #4 with $4.8 million for a $55.1 million total. "The Dictator" rounded out the top five with $4.7 million for a $50.8 million total.
This weekend will see the domestic release of Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" and "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted."
Jaw-dropping, heart-pounding, gut-busting moments galore. See what just happened at the 21st annual MTV Movie Awards!
