20th Century Fox animation Rio has topped the US box office for the second consecutive weekend.

The 3D movie, featuring the voices of Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway, edges past Tyler Perry's latest movie Madea's Big Happy Family by just over $1 million to secure the top spot.

Water for Elephants debuts at number three with £16m, making it the most successful non-Twilight opening for Robert Pattinson. The British star's Remember Me bowed to a disappointing $8m last March.

Russell Brand's Hop and slasher sequel Scream 4 complete the top five, while African Cats - the latest movie in Disneynature 'Earth Day' (April 22) annual releases - registers at number six with $6m ticket sales.

Elsewhere, action-thriller Hanna is the biggest chart faller as it slips four spots to number eight.

1. (1) Rio - $26,323,321
2. (-) Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family - $25,068,677
