in North America, last weekend's champion "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" slipped to No. 2 with $36.1 million. After 10 days, DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc's (DWA.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) cartoon sequel has already earned $118 million -- 18 percent ahead of the pace of its 2005 predecessor, which finished its run with $193.6 million.
These are nice numbers.... If Overseas BO tracks as well, Mady2 will have WW BO of $700mil!!! Then we are looking at a combination 2008 WWBO of $1.331 billion - $400million more than Shrek2 ever did. And that should finally give DWA the cred that it has eluded it until now as a one hit wonder.
