“Rio” tops the box office this weekend as the 3D animated film earned up to $40 million, according to an estimate from distributor 20th Century Fox.

Rio, which stars feathered friends (with voices of Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway) setting on a Brazilian adventure in Rio de Janeiro, posted the best opening numbers so far, this year.

The family-friendly film Rio’s broad audience helped boost the movie’s sales, with its target market split 50-50 between older and younger viewers. The movie was given an average grade of A, according to market research firm CinemaScore.

“When people see something good in the marketplace, it gets them in the moviegoing habit,” said Bert Livingston, general sales manager for 20th Century Fox.

“This movie has a lot of heart. [Even] adults see ‘Rio‘ and think, ‘Are you kidding me? Did I really just tear up at a cartoon?,” Livingston added.

The movie gained some family business from its competition, ‘Hop,’ also an animated film that had been No. 1 for the past two weekends.

Film outfit, 20th Century Fox, made the nod for James Cameron to start working on Avatar sequels. The two back-to-back movies will likely to hit theaters on 2014 and 2015.

Fox made it official today that James Cameron’s next two masterpieces, Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 will kick-off its production next year. The release of the Avatar sequels are planned for December 2014 and 2015, respectively. This news also answers the question whether Cameron will direct the 3D Cleopatra film which will star Angelina Jolie. Another rumor spreading its that Fox have to provide “huge donation” to environmental charities in order for Cameron to get the project going, which is not a bad favor after all.

Here’s the official statement from the man himself:

“In the second and third films, which will be self contained stories that also fulfill a greater story arc, we will not back off the throttle of AVATAR’s visual and emotional horsepower, and will continue to explore its themes and characters, which touched the hearts of audiences in all cultures around the world. I’m looking forward to returning to Pandora, a world where our imaginations can run wild.”
