At the weekend box office, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa movie was the animated blockbuster Jerry Seinfeld's Bee Movie never quite became last year, while Role Models was the R-rated comedy hit Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno didn't quite qualify as last week.
Madagascar 2 ruled with $63.5 million, per studio estimates compiled today by Exhibitor Relations. The raunchy Role Models was a distant, but solid second with $19.3 million.
In short, it was a good weekend for animals, CGI and otherwise.
