Happy early Easter!

Kids were jumping for joy at the movies this weekend to see bunnies poop jelly beans.

Yup, Universal's Hop debuted at the number one spot at the box office this weekend. The animated/live-action film, starring Russell Brand and James Marsden, made $38.1 million, which was better than expected.

Universal must be hopping for joy because it's the biggest opening of any other film this year so far.

Meanwhile, Jake Gyllenhaal's Source Code didn't come in first place, but it still did fairly good, opening with $15.1 million.

The inexpensive horror film, Insidious, came in third with $13.5 million.

Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch took a huge blow as it dropped 68% from the previous weekend, grossing only $6.1 million for the weekdn.

So far, that's been the biggest second-weekend drop of any movie this year.

Ouchie.

Rounding out the top five was Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, which fell 57% and and grossed $10.2 million.
