With the trend of animation domination continuing forth, "Rio" beat out the pack by doubling its closest competitor over the weekend of April 15-17, 2011.

The Anne Hathaway and Jamie Foxx spearheaded bird-based flick did quite well for itself during its first few days of release by pulling in as estimated $41 million in ticket sales.

Garnering the second spot at the box office was the much-publicized spoof horror movie "Scream 4," which pulled in an approximate take of $19.5 million from moviegoers anxious to see the latest offering from the hit franchise.

Rounding out the top five were last weekend's box office champ "Hop" ($11.5 million), followed by "Soul Surfer" ($7.7 million) and "Hanna" ($7.4 million).
