LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The comic action heroes of "Men in Black 3" have taken over the weekend box office from the comic-book superheroes of "The Avengers."

According to studio estimates Monday, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones' latest "Men in Black" installment debuted with $70 million domestically over the four-day Memorial Day weekend.

Sony's "Men in Black 3" took over the No. 1 spot from Disney's "The Avengers," which was the top flick for three straight weekends but slipped to second place with $46.9 million.

"The Avengers" raised its total to $523.6 million, making it the No. 4 movie on the all-time domestic revenue chart.

"The Avengers" could pass the No. 3 film, "The Dark Knight" at $533.3 million, leaving only "Avatar" at $760.5 million and "Titanic" at $658.5 million ahead of it.
