Alice in Wonderland became the top-grossing collaboration of star Johnny Depp and director Tim Burton, remaining atop the box office for the second weekend in a row and raising its domestic take to $208.6 million.

In the three-day March 12 weekend, Alice took in $62 million, the Associated Press reported, becoming the first $200 million hit released this year.

Its take has surpassed the $206.5 million domestic haul of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Depp and Burton's previous best. The two have made seven films together, including Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd and Corpse Bride.

Factoring in international box office, Alice has a worldwide gross so far of about $430 million.

Avatar, meanwhile, raised its domestic total to $730.3 million and its total worldwide gross to $2.6 billion.
