BOX OFFICE BEATDOWN: ‘Rio’ Flies to the Top with $26.5 Million

It was another winning weekend for the movie industry with box office receipts up an estimated 34% from this time last year making everyone hope the 2011 slump is over. Rain in much of the country no doubt helped encourage moviegoers to buy a ticket and stay indoors.

You can't keep a good bird down evidently. Rio was the champ for the second weekend running. It's $26.5 million haul was enough to beat out Madea's Big Happy Family that opened to a robust $26 million. However, Tyler Perry's sixth cross-dressing film performed under expectations. Many had been projecting a $30 million opening weekend but it wasn't able to pull that off. The last two movies featuring his popular Madea character had opened at $41 million and $30 million. Are audiences getting tired of Madea?

BOX OFFICE PREDICTIONS: ‘Madea's Big Happy Family’ Expected to Make Big, Happy Easter Haul

Tyler Perry is poised to be the big man on campus this weekend with his latest Madea offering, Madea's Big Happy Family, projected to pull in about $30 million. The last two films in the series featuring the popular character opened to $30 million and $41 million so this should be on par with those debuts.

He'll face a bit of competition from Rio, last week's champ. The film has had a strong week at the box office (making $3.6 million on Wednesday alone) so it should continue to do well this weekend since there isn't much new competition for its targeted family audience. Look for it to fly into the second position, but if Perry's movie stumbles, it could be a repeat win for the tropical bird flick. Hop should manage to stay in the top 5 as well due to the holiday weekend.
