"Rio" Flies to Top of Box Office Charts with $39.2M Opening Weekend

by on April 18, 2011

Fox and Blue Sky Animation turned out another hit with Rio, which sold .2 million (approximate) in tickets in its premiere weekend, outperforming both analyst expectations and its nearest competition, the latest film in the Scream franchise that only took in $18.7 million to land in second place. While Rio beat out the opening weekends of Rango ($38.1 million) and Hop ($37.5 million), it trailed behind last year’s How to Train Your Dragon ($43.7 million) or other Blue Sky premieres. However, Rio was definitely a winner overseas, taking in another $130.87 million in foreign ticket sales.
