hop movie james marsden 'Hop' tops 'Source Code' at Friday box office

Easter has come early for the box office. Universal and Illumination Entertainment’s partially-CGI Easter Bunny flick “Hop” made double its closest competition on opening night.

The film took in $11.4 million during its first day — which bodes well for a strong performance during the more child-friendly hours of the weekend.

Coming in at #2 is Jake Gyllenhaal‘s critically well-received “Source Code.” The thriller has modest returns with $5.2 million, just a shade above new horror movie “Insidious” ($5 million).

The full top 10:

1. “Hop,” $11.4 M
2. “Source Code,” $5.2M
3. “Insidious,” $5M
4. “Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules,” $3M
5. “Limitless,” $3.1M
6. “The Lincoln Lawyer,” $2.2M
7. “Sucker Punch,” $2M
8. “Rango,”  $1.3M
9. “Paul,” $1.3M
10. “Battle: Los Angeles,” $1.1M
