Weekend Box Office: April 22-24, 2011

An interesting Easter weekend at the box office, as a Tyler Perry film- one featuring his alter ego Madea– managed to not open up at number one. Instead, family favorite Rio claimed the crown for the second weekend in a row with Madea’s Big Happy Family trailing closely behind.

As for Water For Elephants, despite being promoted almost as much as the Royal Wedding (which the American media is ruining for all of us), the Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson flick clocked in at number three with a not too shabby $17M.

Take a look down below to see how the others fared:

1. Rio

2. Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family
