Posted by at 1:07 pm on April 11, 2011

‘Hop’ Jumped over the all other movies to become the first movie of 2011 to enjoy two consecutive weeks at #1 on the box-office tally over the weekend. Featuring Russell Brand as the voice of the Easter Bunny, the kids’ movie successfully thumped four new movies: “Hanna,” “Soul Surfer,” “Your Highness” and Brand’s own “Arthur.” All figures are according to studio estimates released on Sunday.

The $12.6 million opening for English comedian Brand’s remake of the 1981 comedy “Arthur” was no match for the $21.6 million collected by the live-action/animated hybrid “Hop,” which has earned a total of $68.1 million since its premiere. ‘Hop’ is a hit with critics, with both garnering just a 24-percent approval rating, according to Rotten Tomatoes.
