Around the World: Invasion of the Zoo Animals and Aliens!

This week’s Around the World proves to be an interesting one! Sweden and the UK got Prometheus last week — now, it opens world wide in the US, Canada, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore!

In the end, Alien was matched by a bunch of zoo animals, because Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is opening almost EVERYWHERE too, except for Sweden, the UK, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan — they will all get it between July and all the way into August.

Prometheus will open in Peru next week and Japan by the end of August.
