Madagascar 3 tramples the box office

A surprising turn of events occurred at the box office this weekend, where ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ wan taking first place with $60.3 million dollars. What’s interesting is that the animated film collected this money mainly from 3D ticket sales, which is a rare event.  

Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’, which was expected to rule the box office, got second place with $50 million dollars. Either way for a rated R film it still did surprisingly well and word-of-mouth may put it at number one for next weekend.

The fairy tale ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ fell quickly to third place with $23 million dollars. To finish off with the bizarre ‘The Avengers’ has left the top 3 after six weeks.

 

The Top 10 Movies at the Box Office are:

1. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted – $60.3 mil

2. Prometheus – $50 mil

3. Snow White and the Huntsman – $23 mil

4. Men in Black 3 – $13.5 mil

5. The Avengers – $10.8 mil

6. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – $3.2 mil

7. What to Expect When You’re Expecting – $2.7 mil

8. Battleship – $2.3 mil

9. The Dictator – $2.1 mil

10. Moonrise Kingdom – $1.6 mil
