All the new entries into the weekly movies took a second seat to Hop, the family film starring James Marsden, Kaley Cuoco and the voice of Russell Brand.
Hop dropped 42.2 percent, but still landed in first place again this week, raking in an additional $21.6 million at the box office.
The remake of Arthur, also starring Russell Brand, landed in second place and raised an estimated $12.6 million between Friday and Sunday.
Third in the box office lineup is the action-thriller, Hanna, starring Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana. In its first outing in theaters, Hanna nearly matched Arthur’s take with $12.3 mil in receipts.
Soul Surfer, the drama based on book of the same name, chronicling the 2003 shark attack and inspirational recovery of 13-year-old surfer Bethany Hamilton, did a respectable $11.1 million over the weekend. Impressive numbers considering Soul Surfer was released in the least amount of theaters – 2,214 – compared to the top three films, which were in 3,616, 3,276 and 2,535 theaters respectively.
The horror film Insidious settled in fifth place – a 26.6-percent drop from last week’s tally and its third place position.
