Rio Hangs on to the Top of the Box Office

...For the second week in a row, beating out Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family. Rio has grossed $81 million so far, and already close to $300 million worldwide. This film from Tyler Perry's Madea franchise, slipped a little from previous outings, but still remained on the south end of analysts' predictions.

Water For Elephants did a bit better than expected, with just above $17 million, despite mediocre reviews. As for Scream 4, it looks like that franchise is dead, as it dropped more than 60% this weekend, proving to be a big disappointment for a Scream film (I don't see how they can green light another one). It also looks like that other scary film Insidious (with barely any marketing and budget) is in good standing to make more than Scream 4.
