Madagascar 3 Tops Prometheus

After weeks of mediocre releases since The Avengers kicked off the Summer movie season, Madagascar 3 ($60.4 million) and Prometheus ($50 million) managed to debut with a healthy June weekend.  Madagascar 3 is helped by it's short running time (1 and a half hours) and its over 4200 theater count compared to Prometheus' 3300.  Prometheus actually beat Madagascar 3 per screen average ($14,723 vs $14,173).

In other news, The Avengers hit the $1.4 billion mark worldwide.
