BOX OFFICE: PROMETHEUS Makes $3.5M In Midnight Grosses

Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic Prometheus was released in North America today, and now it's been reported that the film made over $3M in its midnight showings. Additionally, find out how much the film is expected to gross this weekend.



Deadline reveals that 20th Century Fox and Ridley Scott's Prometheus grossed an impressive $3.561 million in its North American midnight premiere last night, screening at 1,368 North American theaters. The film performed better than recent blockbusters Men In Black 3 and Snow White And The Huntsman (which grossed $1.6M and $1.4M, respectively, in their midnight premieres). The studio has called this a "fantastic star".

Concerning how much Prometheus will make in its opening weekend, box office observers are divided. Various estimates are ranging from $35M to $55M+. The movie has the advantage of 3D and IMAX ticket sales to help its intake. Dreamworks' Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted (which also opens this week) is expected to take the top spot this weekend, potentially grossing anywhere from $45M to $55M (if not more). What will you be seeing this weekend?
