Forecast: 'Prometheus,' 'Madagascar 3' Go Head-to-Head This Weekend

7 June 2012 4:56 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Midnight Update: Prometheus earned a very impressive $3.56 million from midnight showings at 1,368 theaters. That's seven times as high as Super 8's $500,000 on the same weekend last year, and also higher than Inception's $3 million midnight start in Summer 2010. It's also more than twice the recent midnight debuts of Mib 3 ($1.55 million) and Snow White and the Huntsman ($1.38 million). Both of those movies wound up with over $50 million for the weekend, and there's now a very good chance Prometheus ends up with at least that much.Forecast: So far this Summer, it's always been pretty clear which movie would wind up taking the top spot at the box office each weekend. That's definitely not the case this weekend, though, as highly-anticipated sci-fi flick Prometheus squares off against the third installment in DreamWorks' Madagascar series. Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted is reaching 4,258 locations, which is the 11th-widest release ever (second-widest for an »

7 June 2012 4:27 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Review in a Hurry: Director Ridley Scott's (sorta) Alien prequel arrives with much secrecy, a stellar cast, and groundbreaking 3-D visuals. The sense of awesome is high. But the script by Lost mastermind Damon Lindelof unravels, starting out as a compelling "Tree of Life with monsters" to simply just monsters. Then again, plenty of smarty-pants critics made similar complaints about Alien 33 years ago. The Bigger Picture: In the year 2093, Dr. Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and her hunky fellow scientist Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) make a discovery, the most significant in human history.

Sgt. Timothy Poe sparked an uproar this week when it turned out he likely lied on America's Got Talent about getting injured in Afghanistan. But he's not the only guy to ever dupe a reality show. Now that E! News has confirmed from Defenders of Freedom—the charitable group supporting the troops in which Poe was involved—that the aspiring country crooner was actually wounded in training, not combat as he claimed, and that a photo that aired on Talent of Poe in action (see above) wasn't even him, we thought it'd be a good time to look back at five of the most memorable reality show frauds.  Let the vetting begin! 1.
