The box office's top position is up for grabs. After "The Avengers" dominated for nearly a month, "Men in Black 3" took over before being bested by "Snow White and the Huntsman" this week. Will we see another changing of the guard? Can "Prometheus," Ridley Scott's highly-anticipated return to sci-fi, knock Snow White and the evil queen from their throne? Or will a flood of families propel the third "Madagascar" film atop the box office? Check out this week's openings.

Jane Fonda as a hippie. Not a stretch. Catherine Keener as her lawyer daughter headed to the commune? With Elizabeth Olsen as Keener's daughter? Well, OK, that all makes some sense, too.
