Russell Brands' animated film still maintains the first rank, leaving his other new film 'Arthur' on the second place.

"Hop" is keeping the grip on the top rank of North American box office. The Easter-themed movie obtains $21.3 million, or sliding 43.3% from last week's revenue. Regardless, the animated film grosses total of $67.7 million.

Newly-released "Arthur", Russell Brand's other film beside "Hop", scores the second rank. Reportedly budgeted around $40 million, the Warner Bros. Pictures film gains $12.2 million in its ticket sales from 3,276 theaters.
