Box Office: Russell Brand Stays on Top

Russell Brand, ArthurUPDATE: Final numbers prove Sunday estimates were wrong. Get the updated -- and accurate -- box office results below.


Even Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman can’t compete with family-friendly Easter-themed animation. Hop has retained its number one box office position, and Portman’s lowbrow comedy flick suffered a dismal opening weekend.

Hop, which cost around $63 million to make, has already earned a cool $68.2 million from box office revenue ($21.7 million this weekend). Thanks to his new comedy flick, Russell Brand is in the top two positions on the box office list for the weekend. Arthur earned $12.6 million to gain the second top slot. His voice is behind the leading bunny in Hop, and Brand plays the title character in the number 2 flick.

Action flick Hanna just barely got pushed into third, earning $12.3 million in its opening weekend. Soul Surfer scored $11.1 million to lock down a fourth place opening. Insidious is still on the top five list (barely) with $9.7 million. Natalie Portman, James Franco and Danny McBride proved to be a dismal box office combination, earning a combined $9.5 with Your Highness to land in sixth place.

UPDATED: Hanna actually earned second place at the box office with $12.4 million. Arthur slid into third place with its $12.2 million box office take.

Box Office: Bradley Cooper is Limitless

Bradley Cooper - Limitless

Who is Hollywood’s new $19 million man? Bradley Cooper. The Limitless star proved to be exactly that at the box office this weekend, scoring the top money-making slot with fans.

But Johnny Depp also easily proved his worth -- he didn’t even have to appear on screen to rake in $15.3 million with the animated Rango. Battle: Los Angeles, opening to horrible reviews, managed a modest $14.6 million to earn the number three position.

Matthew McConaughey’s The Lincoln Lawyer barely earned fourth place with $13.4, only narrowly edging out fifth-ranked Paul’s $13.1 million.

VIDEO: See the Cars 2 Trailer

Lightning and Mater are back. Owen Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy have reprised their respective voice roles to create Cars 2, the high-octane sequel to the successful animated comedy that revolves around a racecar.

In this new adventure, Lightning must test his engine against the other cars competing in the World Grand Prix. The circuit will take him to Tokyo, London and the Italian Riviera.

If he makes it that far! A new villain adds a new wrinkle to the story that kids are sure to love (and maybe, a few adults too). Watch the entire trailer above.

Cars 2 will zoom into theaters on June 24.
