21 Jump Streets Leaps to the Front of the Box Office

The TV show-made-into-a-movie-reboot, 21 Jump Street, leaped, hoped and skipped (and other words associated with jumping) to the top of the box office with $35 million. The Lorax had to settle for second place with just under $23 million, but has already made almost $160 million so far. John Carter, on the other hand, is tumbling at the North American box office (with $13.5 million this weekend), dropping about 55% from last weekend, and will most likely not get close to it's budget domestically. Overseas is somewhat a silver lining for John Carter, as it is doing pretty well, making $40 million this weekend, climbing the foreign total to $126 million so far.

Will Ferrell's Spanish language comedy Case De Mi Padre broke into the top ten (with $2.2 million) despite only being in very limited release.
