'Prometheus' Midnight Screenings Box Office: $3.5 Million

06/08/2012 02:43 pm ET

After months of hype, speculation and hilariously spoiler-filled trailers, "Prometheus" has landed in theaters with a bang.

The Ridley Scott film grossed $3.6 million from its midnight screenings, which is more than "Men In Black 3" and "Snow White and the Huntsman" earned from their respectively late-night debuts. That's an encouraging start for the R-rated blockbuster, which could pull down more than $60 million in ticket sales by Sunday night. Should that be the case, "Prometheus" would rank as the fifth biggest R-rated debut of all time, behind only "The Matrix Reloaded," "The Hangover Part II," "The Passion of the Christ" and "300."

Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Guy Pearce, "Prometheus" is out in theaters now. Check out some reviews of the film below and keep HuffPost Entertainment bookmarked for all your weekend box office needs.
