The producers and stars of the animated film, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, are a happy group these days.
The DreamWorks Animation film was the winner of the North American box office race for top film over the weekend. According to reports, Madagascar3 earned a whopping $60.3 million over the weekend, taking the box office crown from Snow White and the Huntsman.
Surrendering the top spot, Snow White slid to third place after earning a modest $23 million in 3,777 theaters. Second place honors last weekend went to the sci-fi film, Prometheus, with an impressive $50 million in gross ticket sales over the weekend.

Hollywood veteran Bruce Willis might be 57 years old, but he remains youthful looking and hot as an action star.
Willis is currently filming the fifth installment of his hit action film series, Die Hard, in Budapest. Wearing khaki trousers, a dark jacket, and black shoes in one of the scenes in the highly anticipated movie, Willis can give young action stars a run for their money. In the latest Die Hard film, Willis will once again take on the role of John McClane, the very role that made him extremely famous 25 yeas ago.
The father of four and former husband of A-list actress Demi Moore remains very serious about his craft as an actor. Fans of the Die Hard film series are very excited about the release of the latest edition of their favorite movie series.
His movies might not be earning well at the box office lately, but Hollywood veteran Eddie Murphy remains happy.
The A-list actor has found love again with a 28-year-old, aspiring actress, Rocsi Diaz. Murphy, 51, and his young girlfriend were recently seen inside a branch of Coffee Bean Café in Sherman Oaks in Los Angeles. The actor and his girlfriend seemed very much in love with each other as they hugged and held hands.
Despite seemingly losing his mojo for making hit movies, Murphy remains a bankable and well-respected comedian today. The actor has five children with his ex-wife, Nicole Mitchel, and he also has a daughter with former Spice Girl Melanie Brown. We hope Murphy and his new girlfriend have a long and lasting relationship as a couple.
Here is a piece of bad news for all the sci-fi movie fans out there.
One of the pillars of sci-fi films revealed that he is retiring from making commercial films and will just focus on making small films out of his garage. Star Wars creator George Lucas, 68, said he has decided to retire from making blockbuster movies so that he can spend the majority of his time in his garage making non-commercial films, which happens to be his true passion.
Lucas said after years of making big films, he realized that it is now time to make hobby movies that make him smile and feel happy. Although some people are clearly sad about his retirement, others are skeptical that Lucas will really retire from making big films. Skeptics said Lucas has often said he wants to retire from making commercial films, but he has always continued to crank out the hits, including the recent Red Tails, which he produced.
Whether Lucas’ announcement is true or not, the fact remains that he will be sorely missed if he really decides to retire from making commercial films. The man is a genius at creating special effects in movies.
Hollywood actress Anna Paquin and her husband, actor Stephen Moyer, deeply love each other.
The couple, who was recently seen acting very loving towards each other, will soon become first-time parents. Paquin and Moyer were spotted holding hands at the season five premiere of their hit show, True Blood, in Hollywood.
Wearing a semi-sheer black dress, the pregnant star looked very lovely. Moyer, 42, also looked good in a checked suit. True Blood is a very popular, hit television series in the United States today. Both Paquin and Moyer are very excited about the pending arrival of their child.
