Bird Movie Triumphs Over Knife Movie

April 18, 2011

Your weekend box office:

1. Rio - $40 million. There's now a 85% higher chance that the next time you ask what the awful noises coming from someone's den are, the answer will be a regretful, "We thought we'd get a pet bird..."

2. Scream 4 - $19.3 million. No Jamie Kennedy? No, thanks!

3. Hop - $11.2 million. Expect the film to rebound this weekend, so we can finally unload all these "Hop bounces back up"-style headlines.

4. Soul Surfer - $7.4 million. I know this is based on a true story and all, but studios, if you decide you want to make a sequel to this inspiring story of a surfer losing her left arm to a shark attack, I've got what I think is a pretty exciting if obvious idea for what she loses next.

5. Hanna - $7.3 million. Despite what this film depicts, I will still physically fight any young girl any time. I'm not even scared. Just let me know when and where, children.
