LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Alice in Wonderland" on Thursday will become the sixth movie to cross $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

Tim Burton's adventure fantasy, which recently came out on home video but continues to play in theaters, has rung up more than $332 million domestically and $667 million internationally.

"Alice" marks Disney's second-biggest film to date behind "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," which plundered $1.07 billion globally in 2006.

The other films in the billion-dollar club are "Avatar," "Titanic," "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King," "Dead Man's Chest" and "The Dark Knight." All were holiday or summer releases, while "Alice" came out in the spring.
