Box office update: 'Hanna' overtakes 'Arthur' for second place

Posted on

Russell Brand’s one-two finish at the box office last weekend is kaput, as the thriller Hanna overtook the comedy remake Arthur for second place, according to final numbers from Focus Features and Warner Bros. Hanna, which stars Saoirse Ronan as a top-notch teenage assassin, performed better than expected on Sunday, raising its weekend tally to $12.4 million. Arthur, on the other hand, fell $400,000 short of Warner Bros.’ weekend estimate, ultimately grossing $12.2 million for third place. The frame’s big winner was still the family-film holdover Hop, which earned $21.3 million and features the voice of Brand as the Easter Bunny’s unruly son.
