Talking birds edge out sass-talking grandma

By Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg’s talking birds have edged out Tyler Perry’s sass-talking grandma at the weekend box office.
Hathaway and Eisenberg’s animated family adventure “Rio” took in $26.8 million to remain the No. 1 movie for the second-straight weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.
“Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family” debuted a close second with $25.8 million, another solid opening for writer-director Perry, who also stars as boisterous, opinionated grandma Madea.
Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson’s circus romance “Water for Elephants” premiered in third-place with $17.5 million.
“It’s nice to have two movies in the top-three,” said Bert Livingston, distribution executive for 20th Century Fox, which released both “Rio” and “Water for Elephants.”
The weekend’s other new wide release, Disney’s nature documentary “African Cats,” opened at No. 6 with $6.4 million.
Morgan Spurlock’s product-placement documentary “POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold” opened with fair but unremarkable business in limited release.
