Weekend Box Office Results

Box Office: Madagascar Wins Lion's Share of the Bucks


The animated sequel Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa was a big hit with audiences over the weekend, earning a whopping $63.5 million. In fact, it set some records and "narrowly scored the best opening of the year for a family toon, as well as the seventh best bow of all time." Madagascar 2 just barely surpassed Wall-E which brought in $63 million its opening weekend.

In the No. 2 spot came the Paul Rudd comedy Role Models that exceeded expectations with an estimated $19.3 million. High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Changeling, and Zack and Miri Make a Porno rounded out the top five followed by Soul Men, which opened at No. 6.

i'm still shocked that the movie did THAT much - but i loved the first so i knew that it would do well. it's a shame that paul rudd was in this movie - i adore him but i think that he's not being used to his best ability.

I .thought it was funny. my boyfriend did not think so.i did find it a bit political and preachy. could not help noticing the tolerance lesson on gays also. a little too close to the lion king story line but funny. my favorite character being the lemur.it was worth seeing. some scenes i am not sure for kids. shaking booty and all.man.
