The Easter movie Hop jumped to the top of the chart this weekend, leaving Jake Gyllenhaal's Source Code a distant second at the box office. Hop, starring James Marsden and Russell Brand, brought in $38 million -- out-earning Source Code by $23 million!
What was it about Hop that made it the biggest U.S. opening so far in 2011? The fact that it is family-friendly while appealing to a wide audience, was made by the same folks who had a great track record with Despicable Me and it's one of the first Easter-themed movies all seemed to make the perfect trifecta for box office success.
Or perhaps Source Code, the thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Monaghan, was a little too similar to Bradley Cooper's mind-bending hit movie Limitless, which is hanging on at number five at the box office.
The horror movie about a possessed child, Insidious, starring Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson, came in at number three, while the family-friendly Diary of a Wimpy Kid landed in fourth place.
