Weekend Box Office: ‘Madagascar 3’ Beats ‘Prometheus’

Family friendly “Madagascar 3” trumped sci-fi horror movie “Prometheus” at the box office this weekend, earning $60.4 million in the U.S. and Canada, according to Reuters. In the third “Madagascar” installment, “Europe’s Most Wanted,” Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman try to get back to the Big Apple by using a traveling circus as their cover.

“Prometheus,” directed by Ridley Scott and starring Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace, finished in second place with $50 million.

“Snow White and the Huntsman” fell to third place with just $23 million in ticket sales, bringing the dark fairy tale to $98.5 million since the film, starring Kristen Stewart, opened last weekend.
