On the wings of the success of the animated film “Rio” in 2011 comes “Rio 2″ with a similar story line and many of the same vocal castings. It was enough to take in a whooping $39 million over the weekend, giving “Rio 2″ a firm hold on 2nd place at the box office behind “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
