"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
It’s not much of a surprise that 21 Jump Street came in No. 1 at the box office, as it not only received positive reviews but faced virtually no competition in its first weekend. Box Office Mojo reports the Fox comedy, which stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as young-looking cops who go undercover at a high school to bust a drug ring, grossed $35 million.
Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax came in second, dropping down a spot from last week, but still raking in $22.8 million. The laboring John Carter took the third spot with $13.5 million. The site reports that, worldwide, the Disney adventure has brought in $179.3 million, still short of the reported $250 million budget.
