(Newser) – The circus animals of Madagascar 3 romped all over Ridley Scott's Prometheus this weekend, with the animated family favorite scoring a $60.4 million debut, notes the Hollywood Reporter. Scott's alien saga came in at No. 2 with $50 million, a reasonable showing given an R rating that limited its younger audience members. Rounding out the top five:

  1. Snow White and the Huntsman, $23 million
  2. Men in Black 3, $13.5 million
  3. The Avengers, $10.8 million
