Hop bounces its way to big box office win
Russell Brand’s Easter-themed movie takeover proved more successful than any of us imagined it would be, as Hop this weekend became the year’s biggest opening movie.
Debuting with a record-setting $38m, the fluffy family comedy beat this year’s previous big earner Rango by just under $1m.
On the opposite end of the audience spectrum – i.e. those older than five – Duncan Jones’ sophomore sci-fi Source Code also came out trumps, opening in second place with $15m.
