Animated family adventure Rio is soaring high at the top of the box office chart, grossing $26.8 million in its second week of release.
The feathery film, featuring characters voiced by Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway, kept Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family from number one over Easter weekend – the comedy opens at two with $25.8 million.

Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson’s period romance Water For Elephants debuts at three, while Hop and Scream 4 round out the top five.
