Rio Stays At Number One!

Rio once again flew to the top of the box office for the second week in a row.

Who would have thought the story of Blu the macaw would end up being the top-grossing flick of 2011 thus far? Rio landed in the top spot for the second week in a row, taking down two big-name new releases: Madea's Big Happy Family and Water for Elephants.

Rio's second week at number one took in $26.8 million, bringing its total gross to $286 million. Tyler Perry's new release, Madea's Big Happy Family, came in at number two with a respectable $25.8 million, while the Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon vehicle, Water for Elephants, slid into the third spot with $17.5 million.

Hop delivered an Easter weekend total of $12.5 million and Scream 4 rounded out the top five with $7.2 million.

The beautiful Disney documentary African Cats, narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, opened with $6.4 million to claim the number six spot.

Soul Surfer came in at number seven with $5.6 million, while the horror film Insidious took number eight with $5.4 million. Hanna and the Source Code rounded out the top ten with $5.3 million and $5.1 million each.

What do you think of Rio's reign at the box office? Do you think it's full steam ahead for the Blu the macaw or will he eventually lose steam? Tell us, we want to know!

I noticed that Tyler Perry's movie has no hyperlink to direct us to a trailer or an interview or any other information about the film or filmmaker. Every other film in this article has a hyperlink Smells of racism. It stinks!
