Depp, Burton lift `Alice' to $41M opening day

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Audiences are mad as hatters about Johnny
Depp and Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland," helping it earn a
whopping $41 million in its first day.
After its big start Friday, the Disney release could be on track
for a $100 million weekend. Box-office tracker Hollywood.com says
that would be a record for films opening in March.
The current best March debut is $70.9 million for "300" in
2007.
Director Burton reteamed with frequent collaborator Depp, who
plays the Mad Hatter in their new take on Lewis Carroll's classic.
The film also features Burton's romantic partner, Helena Bonham
Carter, along with Anne Hathaway, Crispin Glover and Mia Wasikowska
as Alice.
