As expected, Ridley Scott’s Prometheus opened with force, cashing in an impressive $21.4 million in the States on it’s opening day. However, it’s predicted Prometheus won’t win the weekend….
It’s official: a cartoon sequel is tipped to out-do the aliens!
Dreamworks’ Madagascar 3 scored a staggering $20.5 million on it’s opening day – beating Madagascar 2’s figures by a full 16%. As family films are the favourite over the weekend, it is pretty much a dead cert Ridley Scott will be coming second behind animated hippos and zebras at the US Box Office this weekend.
Coming in third is last weekend’s victor, Snow White and the Huntsman (still to be released in Aus. It hits Aussie screens June 21st), with MIB: 3 and The Avengers finishing off the top five.
Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is scheduled for release in Australia September 13.
