The animated family film pulled in $35 million, bringing its cumulative to $120 million domestically. While the third installment of the Madagascar franchise was enjoying the limelight, Rock Of Ages found a difficult time filling theater seats, landing in third place behind Prometheus.
The sci-fi drama reeled in $21 million, while the big budget musical earned just $15 million over the weekend.
