WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Madagascar 3 tops the chart with 60.4 million, in a near repeat of the success of the franchise's sequel. Given the last one was released in November, where there is plenty of competition for family dollars, this one may reach a higher total.  Prometheus places with 50 million, just about as expected, though one wonders about its legs.  Not that it will matter much, as the film has already recouped its 125 million production budget worldwide, leaving marketing and distribution costs an easy pcikup.  Snow White and the Huntsman shows with 23 million on a steep 59 percent drop from its debut.  Here again, the film sits just shy of 100 million domestic and has just about recouped its 170 million production budget globally.  Men in Black 3 takes in another 13.5 million on a 52 percent drop; it's likely to be the least successful of the series, yet still has half a bilion banked.  The Avengers rounds out the Top 5 with another 10.8 million; it now seems likely to break 600 million domestic and already has raked in almost 1.4 billion worldwide.
