Rio Wins Number One Box Office Spot

Box Office: Rio Murders Scream 4

Despite the good reviews of Scream 4, it couldn't beat fellow new release Rio at the box office. The animated flick, which features the voices of Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, brought in $40 million to claim the number one spot. Scream 4 trailed it with $19.3 million, a significantly less opening total than previous Scream sequels (Scream 3 opened with $34.7 million back in 2000).

Easter bunny kids' movie Hop, last week's box office winner, came in third with $11.2 million. Fourth place was claimed by inspirational surf film Soul Surfer with $7.4 million, and the top five was completed by Saoirse Ronan's action vehicle Hanna, with $7.3 million.
