'Madagascar 3' Keeps its Overseas Box Office Crown

DreamWorks Animation's "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" may have lost its U.S. box office crown to "Brave," but it still made $30.1 million overseas this weekend, more than any other film.

The Paramount-distributed CGI movie played in 45 territories and has now taken in $208.4 million abroad, and has a worldwide gross of $365.9 million, according to estimates from box office tracker Rentrak.

It was a light weekend at the overseas box office, in part because distributors steered clear of rollouts in Europe, where many are focused on the soccer championships.
