Holly space balls!
Prometheus raked in $3.6 million during its midnight opening!
Audiences eagerly awaited Ridley Scott’s sci-fi prequel for years so we aren't shocked it brought in boatloads of paper Benjamins.
It also doesn’t hurt that Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, and Michael Fassbender all look wonderfully mouth-watering in the trailers.
This midnight showing crushed Charlize’s other summer tent-pole, Snow White and the Huntsman, which earned a comparatively paltry $1.4 mil.
Prometheus has pulled in $55 mil overseas and is expected to do great things this weekend, even though its R rating will likely deter some audiences.
R U pumped for the space epic or will U save your cheddar for those HIGHLarious misfits from Madagascar?
