’21 Jump Street’ Leaps To No. 1 With $35M Debut

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Audiences are heading back to school for the TV update “21 Jump Street,” which has opened as the No. 1 weekend movie with $35 million.

Sony’s action comedy starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as cops going undercover as high school students took down the animated hit “Dr. Seuss’ the Lorax,” which had been the top flick the previous two weekends.

Studio estimates Sunday put Universal’s “The Lorax” in second-place with $22.8 million, raising its domestic total to $158.4 million.

At No. 3, Disney’s costly sci-fi dud “John Carter” dropped sharply in its second weekend. The Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptation took in $13.5 million, down 55 percent from its anemic opening weekend and lifting its domestic total to a measly $53.2 million. “John Carter” reportedly cost $250 million to make.
