Los Angeles - Circus animals and space beasts have lifted Hollywood to a huge weekend.
The cuddly critters of Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted led the weekend with a $60.4m, followed by a big opening for Ridley Scott's alien saga Prometheus at No 2 with $50m.
DreamWorks Animation's Madagascar 3 was the family favourite for the weekend, reuniting voice stars Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith and David Schwimmer as the zoo animals continue their travels by joining a circus.
Prometheus, from 20th Century Fox, stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron in an offshoot of director's Scott's 1979 science-fiction horror tale Alien.
Prometheus did big business despite an R rating, which can limit a movie's audience since those under 17 must see it with an adult.
