BOX OFFICE

'Hop' Bounds to $38 Million

Universal’s family comedy Hop—the story of the Easter Bunny’s rebellious, Russell Brand-voiced son—leapt to first place at the weekend box office, taking in an estimated $38.1 million so far and putting itself on track to be the biggest weekend opener of the year. (The animated Rango earned just $39,000 less, if estimates hold.) That doesn’t mean you should take the kids: Entertainment Weekly called itAlvin and the Chipmunks with only one chipmunk and, if possible, even less fun.” The new thriller Source Code, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, drew $15.1 million, and the horror film Insidious took in $13.5 million.
