Box Office

Madagascar Sequel Leads the Pack

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa topped an otherwise slow weekend at the box office with an estimated gross of $63.5 million. The animated animal flick—starring Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, and Jada Pinkett Smith—beat forecasts by $10 million and easily topped Role Models, which took in $19 million. The High School Musical 3 phenomenon earned an additional $9.3 million in third place while Angelina Jolie’s Changeling collected $7.3 million.
