Entries in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules (2)


'Hop' Leaps to Box Office Top

Ryan McVay/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- The Easter bunny bounced its way to the top of the box office this weekend.

Hop, the animated and live-action flick starring the voice of Russell Brand as a teen bunny beat predictions, pulling in an estimated $38.1 million. It's the second week in a row that a kids' movie reigned supreme. Last week, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules was on top. It fell to fourth at this week's box office.

Second place went to the Jake Gyllenhaal sci-fi thriller Source Code.

The horror film Insidious freaked its way to third place.

'Wimpy Kid' Dodges 'Sucker Punch' at Box Office

Twentieth Century Fox(LOS ANGELES) -- Fox’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules proved that it wasn’t such a wimp after all, as it held off all competition to take top honors at the box office over the weekend, raking in $24.4 million.

Like the original Wimpy Kid movie, Greg Hefley still desires popularity but still can't get out of his own awkward way and his older brother Rodrick is more than willing to facilitate Greg's embarrassing antics.

Coming in second at the box office was the Warner Bros. film, Sucker Punch, which garnered $19 million.

Completing the top five were Limitless at $15.2 million, The Lincoln Lawyer at $11.0 million and Rango at $9.8 million, in that order.
