Rio Takes Top of Box Office

...While Scream 4 underwhelmed.

The Fox animated movie Rio, easily took the top spot this weekend garnering about $40 million, a little bit less than expected. Scream 4, on the other hand, disappointed with an $18 million debut... showing signs that this franchise should have been slashed at the third one.

On a side note, this will be an interesting year in predicting movies, as their is much competition from a lot of sequels which are way past their (ala Scream 4) The good news is that Scream 4 only cost $40 million.
