Madagascar 3 Pulls In $60.4M During First Weekend


Madagascar 3 Pulls In $60.4M During First Weekend

Contrary to what some critics initially predicted, the third installment of DreamWorks’ Madagascar series proved to be a hit as it managed to score an impressive $60.4 million at the US blox office and landed on the top of the ticket sales chart during its first weekend. Madagascar 3 actually opened slightly behind the previous installment Madagascar Escape 2 Africa, which opened with $63.1 million in 2008, but the threequel is actually doing well in international territories, collecting a $75.5 million from 28 markets, which may end up surpassing the sequel’s $603 million global take if it continues to pull in great numbers.

The No. 2 spot in the box office belongs to Ridley Scott’s sort-of prequel to Aliens, Prometheus, which got a healthy $50 million during its opening weekend. Prometheus played in 862 fewer theaters than Madagascar 3, but the overseas numbers for the movie tell a different story, managing to snag a hefty $91.4 million.
