Without “Madagascar”, and” Madagascar: Return 2 Africa” we would not be seeing “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” in theaters now. “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” is experiencing some of the same box office success of its predecessors. The movie opened at number 1 its first week and remained there until its third week when it slipped to number #2 after another computer animated movie, “Brave.” So the worldwide box office sale Madagascar 3 is over $270 million. Worldwide box office sales totaled over $532 million for “Madagascar”, while “Madagascar: Return 2 Africa” had sales that were closer to $600 million. With the amount the amount of money the current movie has made so far, it would be no surprise if it makes as much as the other previous two movies.
Madagascar 2 is now in theaters and gave the movie industry a much needed boost during it opening weekend, when it was number one in theaters.
DreamWorks’ latest animation fest, “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa,” surpassed all expectations for its opening weekend, bringing in $63.5 million and helping the industry deliver a resounding 29% increase in overall box-office take compared with a year earlier.
