According to commingsoon.net in comparison, Fox opened Blue Sky's Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who to $45 million in March 2008 and Robots to $36 million three years earlier. Dreamworks’ How to train your dragon grossed $43 million its opening weekend March 2010. Rio is thus following the very popular animated trend and is respectfully holding its own. Internationally, Rio continued to do well, adding another $53.5 million, bringing its total worldwide gross to $168 million in just ten days.
Rio features the voices of Anne Hatheway (Jewel), Jesse Eisenberg (Blu) and the comedic charmer George Lopez (Rafael). If you have not yet seen this colourful display of animation, go do so this Easter weekend.
