Madagascar 3

Prometheus and Madagascar

With all the talk of Ridley Scott, Damon Lindelof and the return of the Alien franchise, our best guess is that you too didn’t realize that a new Madagascar movie had hit theaters. It did, oddly enough. And families did not forget about it. In fact, they remembered it so vividly that it propelled Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted to a win over the R-rated Prometheus and a weekend win. The family toon featuring the voice work of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and David Schwimmer became the second film in the franchise to top $60 million in its opening weekend, bested slightly by Madagascar 2‘s 2009 release. For Prometheus, it didn’t have much trouble becoming the highest opening of the Alien franchise, considering the rest of its competition opened in the 1980s and 1990s. Either way, $50 million dollars isn’t half bad for a second place finish.
