Trailing behind "Rio" on the second place is newly-released "Madea's Big Happy Family". The comedy film, which revolves around a wise-cracking grandmother named Madea, opens with $25 million from 2,288 theaters.
In the meantime, "Water for Elephants" has a modest opening on number three. Attracting an audience that was 70% female, the PG-13 movie grosses $16.8 million in its ticket sales.
