An anthology of short films set on the backdrop of Rio de Janeiro.
Pirates Takes Top Prize, But Bridesmaids has almost zero drop off from debuting week, while Thor, Fast Five and Rio maintain their top five positions!
Thor strikes FTW, while Bridesmaids overperforms and Priest… releases.
THOR wins the weekend, with Fast Five brining in another $30+ million in its second stint, and two Summery rom/coms going neck to neck for third and fourth.
Fast action, Fast cars, Fast records, as FAST FIVE destroys April openings, 2011 openings, Fast & Furious franchise openings, and also becomes Universal’s biggest opening ever.
An animated bird from small-town Minnesota beats Tyler Perry dressed as an old woman, elephants keep drinking water, Easter bunny film breaks 100 million, and a slaher flick hangs on to round out the long weekend.
RIO is in a league of its own, as Screamer sequel, Easter bunnies, Teen surfers and teen assassins fight for very few remaining top 5 dollars!
