'Madagascar 3' Defeats 'Prometheus' at Weekend Box Office

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted took the top spot at the box office this weekend!

The animated family film filled a void for children’s flicks and took in an estimated $60.4 million, according to THR.

Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron‘s Prometheus took second place, with a strong $50 million, which was higher than the studio expected.

Rounding out the top five were Kristen Stewart‘s Snow White and the Huntsman with $23 million, Will Smith‘s Men in Black III with $13.5 million, and Marvel’s The Avengers with $10.8 million.

    Yep… It’s because Prometheus is rated R. That’s why. Great film though!

    I would like to see both Madagascar and Prometheus. I have seen Men in black (entertainer, fun to watch) and Avengers (best blockbuster this year, period. Thor is my God<3). Snow White is coming out in my country this week, I can't wait to see it along with Prometheus!!

    Well… “Madagascar” actually played in more theaters than Prometheus did. Maybe that’s why it made more money? Either way, $50 million is incredibly impressive!! So glad it did so well!!! Fantastic film!

    @POLO: Well I guess your comment shows your maturity, kid.

  • sunshine

    @One love: If Prometheus was pg-13 imagine how many kids would go to see it… but it is a fact that it is rated R… so clearly less people would go..

    Anyway it did way better than SWATH… Prometheus was great.
