Russell Brand’s ‘Hop’ hops over Jake Gyllenhaal to take Weekend Box

By Pat Ryder
HollywoodNews.com: The Universal family flick “Hop” seems to have hopped away with the biggest opening this weekend. The combination live-action and animation film, starring a Russell Brand-voiced Easter Bunny, is estimated to have earned a three-day gross of $38.1 million.

According to Eonline, ‘Hop’ passed the Jake Gyllenhaal thriller “Source Code,” which did a decent $15.1 million. Against a film budget of $32 million, that may not be as big an opening as Summit Entertainment had hoped. Still, “Source Code” seems to be receiving very good reviews and could do well in the long run.

E! also noted that budget horror film “Insidious” (at a cost of about $1 million to make) brought in almost as much as “Source Code.” And “Sucker Punch,” with its mixed reviews, hasn’t hit $30 million in two weekends. It’s at number seven this week, so might “Sucker Punch” drop completely out of the top ten next weekend?

It will be interesting to watch the box office race over the next few weeks.

The five top-grossing films so far this weekend:

1. Hop, $38.1 million
2. Source Code, $15.1 million
3. Insidious, $13.5 million
4. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, $10.2 million
5. Limitless, $9.4 million

Did you hit the theaters this weekend and see “Hop” or “Source Code” (or both)? What did you think?
