  /  03.29.2015

That Rihanna reign just won’t let up. Rihanna ruled the box office this weekend as her movie Home opened at No. 1.

The animated film about a teenage girl (Rihanna) who teams up with a misfit alien (Jim Parsons) raked in $54 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Overseas, it earned $48.2 million for a whopping worldwide total of $102.2 million.

It far exceeded expectations and beat out the Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart comedy Get Hard, which opened at No. 2 with $34.6 million.

The 3D movie, which also stars Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez, marks the best opening for a DreamWorks Animation film since Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted ($60.3 million) in summer 2012 and the third-best showing ever for a DWA title.
