Weekend Wrap-Up: Rio soars over Scream 4

Rio soars to the Number 1 slot at the box office.
When sequels are usually released, mixed reviews and anticipation comes forth. It was no exception this weekend with the release of Scream 4, still starring Courtney Cox, David Arquette, and Neve Campbell. The sequel made a strong $19.2 million taking the second spot in the opening weekend. Though, coming in on top was Jesse Eisenberg’s Rio, making an even $40 million. We haven’t seen opening weekend numbers like this in a while, and with the Spring blockbusters coming out, it is good to see the box office seats fill up. In third place was Russell Brand’s Hop, which made another $11 million, grossing a strong $82 million total. Robert Redford's limited release, The Conspirator, a historical drama about the assassination of President Lincoln, took in $3.9 million, just enough to place it in the Top Ten. Coming out next weekend is Water for Elephants, starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon. Teen girls will swoon, but the film was a smash at many international film festivals.

  1. Louis vuitton sent their fall/winter 2012/2013 collection down the Milan Fashion Week runway today and it featured a much darker, more gothic and vampire-like color palette than what was shown by the iconic design house for fall 2011. One year 
    ago louis vuitton Handbags showed bright colors and blocked them together, helping to explode the current color blocking trend. For fall 2012, Gucci moved away from the trend they started and let black rule the runway.
