Audiences headed back to school for the TV update “21 Jump Street,’’ which opened as the No. 1 weekend movie with $35 million. Sony’s action comedy starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as cops going undercover as high school students took down the animated hit “Dr. Seuss’ the Lorax,’’ which had been the top flick the previous two weekends. Studio estimates Sunday put Universal’s “The Lorax’’ in second place with $22.8 million, raising its domestic total to $158.4 million. At No. 3, Disney’s “John Carter,’’ which reportedly cost $250 million to make, took in $13.5 million, down 55 percent from its opening weekend. In narrow release, Will Ferrell’s Spanish-language B-movie spoof “Casa de mi Padre’’ opened solidly at No. 9 with $2.2 million. The Lionsgate release played in just 382 theaters, compared to 3,121 for “21 Jump Street.’’
