Madagascar Escape 2 Africa roared onto overseas' screens over the weekend with $50.2 million in ticket sales, averaging nearly $10,000 per screen in 5,129 theaters in 35 countries. Reporting on the results, Daily Variety observed that the Paramount/DreamWorks Animation feature earned more than the combined total of the next four films on the international box-office list, Quantum of Solace, Twilight, Bolt and WALL-E . The film, which opened internationally five weeks ago and has been slowly expanded since, has now earned an impressive $125 million abroad. "With school holidays set to start in many markets, Madagascar 2 is set for a very strong run this holiday season," Andrew Cripps, president of Paramount Pictures Intl., told Variety.
The former president was believed by some to have been suffering from dementia during his second term in office from 1984 to 1988.
