HOP SKIPS FORECASTS, JUMPS TO $38 MILLION

April 4, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Hop leaped beyond the best predictions of box office analysts over the weekend, taking in an estimated $38.1 million. The Universal live-action/CGI feature nearly quadrupled the $10.2-million take for 20th Century Fox’s second week of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, with which it was supposed to vie closely for the family audience. Instead, Wimpysettled for fourth place behind the debuts of Summit Entertainment’s Source Code with about $15 million and Film District’s Insidious with around $13.5 million. (While Source Code performed according to expectations, Insidious topped them.) Rounding out the top five was Relativity Media’s Limitless with $9.4 million.

The top ten films for the weekend, according to studio estimates compiled by Box Office Mojo:
1. Hop, $38.1 million; 2. Source Code, $15.0 million; 3. Insidious, $13.5 million; 4. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, $10.2 million; 5. Limitless, $9.4 million; 6. The Lincoln Lawyer, $7.1 million; 7. Sucker Punch, $6.1 million; 8. Rango, $4.6 million; 9. Paul, $4.3 million; 10. Battle: Los Angeles, $3.5 million.
