Madagascar Deux In Foreign Lands

We know that the zoo animals are collecting heavy coin across the fruited plain. But how are they doing overseas?

"Madagascar 2," still warming up nicely in Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia, tallied $6.4 million from 990 screens in only seven markets to lift its early cume to an encouraging $48.5 million. The animated hit comes out in full force in late November and early December.

When the flick reaches full velocity, it will most likely do as well in the other parts of the globe as it does here. I'm estimating a world-wide cume of ... oh ... $450 million to $550 million.

(Of course, we'll see how Madagascar performs when the Little White Dog shows up.)
