Paramount's Rango topped the daily box office for a fourth consecutive day on Monday. The big-budget computer animated film featuring Johnny Depp grossed $2.11 million, which was down 82 percent from Sunday. The size of Monday's decline combined with the film's strength on Saturday and Sunday suggests that the film is skewing heavily towards family audiences thus far, regardless of just how family friendly the film is being viewed as. Rango topped the $40 million mark yesterday and has now grossed $40.19 million through four days of release. The film is currently running 17 percent behind the pace of both 2008's Horton Hears a Who! and last year's How to Train Your Dragon.

The Adjustment Bureau held steady in second place with $1.49 million. The Universal release starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt was down 72 percent from Sunday. That was a bit sharper than the 66 percent last year's Green Zone fell on its first Monday, though The Adjustment Bureau was coming off of stronger first Saturday and Sunday holds than Green Zone. The Adjustment Bureau is running in line with expectations thus far with a four-day start of $22.65 million. The film is currently running 46 percent ahead of the pace of Green Zone.

Warner's Hall Pass took third place with $0.77 million. The Farrelly Brothers directed comedy starring Owen Wilson was down 68 percent from Sunday and down 30 percent from last Monday. After a slightly slower than expected start, the film has held up nicely thus far. Hall Pass has grossed $27.61 million through eleven days of release, placing it 4 percent behind the pace of last year's Hot Tub Time Machine.

Beastly grossed $0.53 million to finish in fourth place for the day. The CBS Films release starring Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer fell 76 percent from Sunday. Beastly topped the $10 million mark yesterday and has now grossed $10.38 million through four days of release. That is slightly above pre-release expectations and place the film 19 percent ahead of the pace of last year's Remember Me.

Unknown rounded out the day's top five with $0.48 million. The Liam Neeson vehicle from Warner Bros. fell 71 percent from Sunday and 43 percent from last Monday. Following a very solid debut last month, Unknown hasn't been able to hold up all that well, especially on weekends. The film has grossed $53.51 million in 18 days and appears headed for a final domestic gross in the area of $65 million.
