20th Century Fox’s animated family film “Rio” made much more noise than Scream 4 could, opening in North America in first place with $40 million this weekend.

Featuring the voices of Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, Rio had the best debut of any film so far this year. It beat another animated comedy, Rango, by about $2 million.

In its second weekend overseas, the 3D computer-animated Rio stayed in first place, making $53.9 million in 13,705 venues in 62 countries.

The movie, from Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios, has grossed $129.1 million overseas and $169.1 million worldwide.
