Monsters Vs. Aliens

It was "Monsters vs. Aliens" versus a sluggish March box office — and the "Monsters" came out victorious. DreamWorks' 3-D crowd-pleaser won over moviegoers and took the #1 spot with an impressive $58.2 million.
That's more than "Watchmen" took on its debut a mere four weeks ago, earning "Monsters" a spot as one of the highest-grossing March debuts.
It's also the biggest 3-D opener yet, with the film bringing in 56 percent of its take just through 3-D screenings.
#1 "Monsters Vs. Aliens" ($58.2 million)
#2 "The Haunting in Connecticut" ($23 million)
#3 "Knowing" ($14.7 million)
#4 "I Love You, Man" ($12.6 million)
#5 "Duplicity" ($7.56 million)

Madonna in Malawi

Pop singer Madonna has travelled to Malawi in a bid to adopt a second child from the country.
Four-year-old Chifundo "Mercy" James is in the same orphanage
that was once home to David Banda, adopted by the singer in 2006.
Madonna's decision take a second child has already been criticised by international charities
but now a human rights organisation in Malawi is threatening
to try and stop the adoption from taking place.
