Female revenge comedy The Other Woman denied Captain America: The Winter Soldier an extension of its back-to-back-to-back reign atop the domestic box office over the weekend. After setting an April opening record four weekends ago, the Marvel blockbuster sequel was trying to become the first movie since the first Hunger Games to four-peat.
Instead, The Winter Soldier settled for the runner-up spot ahead of fellow holdovers Heaven is For Real and Rio 2. The faith-based drama and 3D animated family film dropped to third and fourth place, respectively.
Rounding out the top five was action remake Brick Mansions in its opening weekend. The last of the three new major releases, horror story The Quiet Ones, debuted softly in seventh place behind sci-fi flop Transcendence in its sophomore weekend.
Another Marvel blockbuster sequel and our #10 most anticipated movie of the year, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is the only wide release this upcoming weekend. It includes an already highly discussed stinger that may be exclusive to North America.
Here are the numbers for the top five of the domestic box office over the weekend via BOM:
- The Other Woman — Weekend Gross: $24.8 million — Total Gross: $24.8 million (new)
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier — Weekend Gross: $16.2 million — Total Gross: $225.1 million (#1 last week)
