'Rio' Tops Box Office

Rio had a successful first week at the box office, bringing in an estimated $40 million in ticket sales.

The 3-D adventure, which features the voices of Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Leslie Mann, Tracy Morgan, will.i.am and more, did well with every demographic and had a strong showing overseas, Variety reports.

Scream 4 brought in $19.3 million – and largely positive reviews! – in its first weekend at the box office.

Rounding out the top five were Hop, Soul Surfer, and Hanna.

WHAT DID YOU SEE at the movies this weekend?

Scream 4 was just another generic and derivative horror movie. This film series was already repetitious and monotonous. Nothing but a cash grab. And suckers gladly ponied up to watch it. Why do they insist on continuing this tired old franchise?? It’s the same old story over and over. Write something new Hollywood! Wonder when they’ll announce Scream 5 and that it will feature the entire casts of Glee, Gossip Girl, Jersey Shore, One Tree Hill and The Only Way Is Essex. Should be a cinch! More cash!

I’m looking very much forward to seeing Water for Elephants next week. Robert Pattinson is a wonderful guy, extremely handsome, and has an accent. For all you guys out there, be headstrong. Girls like strong men that aren’t afraid to show their true feelings at times. We need to know you’re reliable, say what you mean, and will always take care of us.

Scream 4 is a flop… what did they expect? Just like Burlesque, you can’t shoot same old movie million times…

Jared, I know you’re pimping Scream 4 and everything, but the film did not get largely positive reviews. Are you kidding me?

The weekend isn’t even over…

Dirty birds in a third world country were most popular with American audiences? Not surprising..

Wonder if the poor minorities were what made such drivel popular in the first place?

Mona … you are retarded…
Madagascar was in Africa, Kung Fu Panda in China and they were all blockbusters and great movies…
O wait, you only watch movies that takes place in U.S.A…..
What a stupid comment you made

Scream 4 and I actually liked it. The ending was a bit much but i was still entertained and surprised by Hayden P.

Rio was good! Anne Hathaway did a great job as a voice talent.

Rodrigo santoro also did a great job as a voice talent .

is the cat’s part of Rodrigo santoro dubbing as well, making the human tulio. if his English is perfect, because there came to see as distinct from other major players.
