Birds Trounce Elephants At the Box Office

by Radar Staff

Rio 3D, the animated adventure of two love-struck birds who travel to Brazil, was the clear box office winner this weekend. With Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg as the voice stars, it pulled in $26.8 million in its second week in release.

It easily demolished Reese Witherspoon and Rob Pattinson‘s circus-themed love story, Water for Elephants.  It finished third in its opening weekend, with just $17.5 million in ticket sales.
