‘Hop’ Returns as Top Weekend Film With $21.7 Million in Sales

The comedy “Hop,” about a young bunny’s mission to save Easter, was the top film in U.S. and Canadian theaters for the second-straight weekend, taking in $21.7 million in ticket sales.

“Hop,” a PG-rated film combining animation and live action, is the first film from Comcast Corp.’s Universal Pictures to lead the box office this year and has taken in $68.2 million in two weeks of release, Box-Office said today in an e-mailed statement.

The movie held on to the top spot even with other debut films vying for moviegoer attention, including a remake of the 1981 comedy “Arthur” featuring Russell Brand, one of the voices in “Hop.” U.S. theater attendance has slumped 21 percent this year through April 3 as the studios’ film slates have failed to match the appeal of last year’s fare.

“Arthur,” a remake of the Dudley Moore picture about a bumbling, rich bachelor, collected $12.6 million for Time Warner Inc.’s Warner Bros. to land in second place. A drunken playboy played by Brand faces the loss of his inheritance when he falls for a woman the family doesn’t like. Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig and Nick Nolte are also featured.

“Hanna,” an action thriller from Universal’s Focus Features, opened in third place with revenue of $12.3 million. The movie features Saoirse Ronan as a teenager who is trained to be a killer by her father, a former CIA agent, and sent on a mission. Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett co-star.
