No matter how much buzz the Alien prequel Prometheus attained, it wasn't enough to win over the parents and their kids who saw Madagascar 3 this weekend.
With a cool $60.3 million, the animated family flick debuted on top, considerably beating out Ridley Scott's latest film's $51 million take. Last week's number one film, Snow White and the Huntsman fell to number three with $23 million while Men in Black III and The Avengers took in $13.8 million and $11.2 million, respectively.
