Weekend Box Office – Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted (10 June 2012)

Madagascar 3

A zebra clothed like a clown with a multicolor wig won Ridley Scott’s most ambition project. :chan:
Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted handily defeated Prometheus over the three-day weekend. That being said, even if it didn’t quite reach the astronomical levels some had been expecting, director Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi still had one of the best second place debuts in history.

It’s the second-highest opening of director Ridley Scott’s career behind 2001’s Hannibal ($58 million), and it’s also a new record for the Alien franchise ahead of Alien Vs. Predator’s $38.3 million (though ticket sales were about on par with that entry).
