The three-week reign of the superhero movie, The Avengers, as the top movie at the box office in North America is now officially over.
According to reports, Men in Black 3 eclipsed The Avengers as the top grossing movie last weekend in the United States and Canada. Men in Black 3 earned a whopping $55 million over the holiday weekend, overcoming Disney’s The Avengers, which earned $37 million during the same period.
Despite losing the top spot, The Avengers still managed to rank second in the tight race. Men in Black 3 stars Hollywood superstars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Taking the third spot in the race was Universal’s Battleship with $10.8 million.
Veteran Hollywood actor Tommy Lee Jones is known as a serious, very good actor.
In real life, Jones is indeed very serious, almost crossing the line into being plain old grumpy. In fact, Jones looked rather grumpy and way too serious at a recent promotional event for Men In Black 3, in which he stars opposite another Hollywood superstar, Will Smith. The two Men in Black veterans first worked together on the original smash hit back in 1997.
Despite Jones‘ grumpy nature, the event was a success and full of fun, courtesy of the smiling Smith and their other co-star, Josh Brolin. The latest Men In Black flick is set to hit theaters all over the world before the year is over.
And even though he might be grumpy, it is nice to see Jones making public appearances. He is an acting genius, after all.
