(NEW YORK) -- Madagascar 3 is this weekend's top film with $60.4 million in U.S. and Canadian theaters, Bloomberg News reports.
The DreamWorks Animation hit beat out the science-fiction thriller Prometheus, which took in $50 million. Madagascar 3 exceeded the Box Office Mojo estimate of $53.8, but was less than the $63.1 million its predecessor, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa brought in in 2008, according to Bloomberg.
The animated film has little to compete with until Disney releases Brave on June 22.
