Yep, Madagascar 3 Outgrossed Prometheus.
A 3D sci-fi epic written by Damon Lindelof and directed by Ridley Scott, complete with tie-in to the iconic Alien franchise — you’d think Prometheus would have easily taken the box office this weekend. And yes, it did well, but in the end, it couldn’t keep up with Dreamworks’ CGI talking animals in Madagascar 3.
Madagascar 3 won the weekend with $60 million, putting Prometheus in second place with $50 million. Not a bad draw for either.
