Box office report: 'The Other Woman' trio overwhelms 'Captain America'

The threesome of Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton proved to be too much for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Fox’s raunchy girlfriends comedy, about two mistresses who team up with a man’s insecure wife to ruin his life and rediscover theirs, earned $24.7 million to bump the Marvel superhero from his three-week box office run at No. 1. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'The Other Woman' dominates Friday with $9.3 million

In The Other Woman, a man’s wife and his two mistresses join forces to take him down a peg. They just so happened to do the same thing to Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Fox’s comedy starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton vastly overshot expectations to collect $9.3 million on Friday night, finally knocking the Marvel superhero sequel from its three-week run at the top of the box office. Some only expected the raucous girlfriends farce to reach $13 million total for the weekend, though it’s now on track to do at least double that — evidence that this movie has Bridesmaids-strength appeal.

Box office report: 'Captain America' crosses $200 million in its third week

It’s a great day to be a Marvel superhero: Captain America: The Winter Soldier took the No. 1 spot for the third weekend in a row, earning $26.61 million this holiday weekend, allowing it to cross that magical $200 million finish line. For comparison’s sake, this sequel — directed by Anthony and Joe Russo — has already outearned 2011′s Captain America: The First Avenger, which ended its run with $176.65 million. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'Captain America 2' brings in a heroic $9.57 million on Friday

Apparently, it’s hard to keep a good soldier (and movie!) down: Captain America: The Winter Soldier brought in an estimated $9.57 million for Disney/Marvel on Friday night, keeping it in the top spot for its third week in release. The movie — directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring Chris Evans as the ever-likeable Steve Rogers — has been well-received by critics and audiences (it has an A Cinemascore) and is on pace to cross the magic $200 million mark this weekend.

Box office preview: Johnny Depp's 'Transcendence' heads for an Earth-bound debut

Johnny Depp is back in theaters this weekend for the first time since last summer’s The Lone Ranger – but his $100 million sci-fi thriller Transcendence isn’t the only movie with a shot at the box office crown. There’s strong competition from both last week’s champ Captain America: Winter Soldier and the animated Rio 2, which could get an additional boost from kids who aren’t school-bound on Good Friday. The inspirational Heaven Is for Real and the profane A Haunted House 2 are also in the running.

Here’s how the weekend could go: READ FULL STORY

Box office brief: Will Christian audiences turn out for 'Heaven Is for Real'?

It’s no secret that Christian-themed films have the potential to be box office gold, but even though faith-based audiences are starved for more material, it doesn’t always pan out the way studios might hope.

While Paramount’s expensive and provocative Darren Aronofsky-directed Noah continues to climb the steep slope toward domestic profitability and Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s Son of God failed to reach Passion of the Christ heights (after seven weeks in theaters it still hasn’t even made Passion‘s opening weekend numbers), the independently released God’s Not Dead came out of nowhere and stunned the major studios with its mighty box office ascent. The $2 million film, now playing in 1,860 locations, has made nearly $41.5 million in just four weekends in theaters.

Now, TriStar Pictures is rolling out its drama Heaven Is for Real on Wednesday in 2,400 locations. Based on the best-selling book by Pastor Todd Burpo about his real-life encounter with the divine, Heaven Is for Real tells the story of his young son, who claims to have visited Heaven during a near-death experience. Greg Kinnear portrays the pastor in the adaptation, and newcomer Connor Corum plays his son Colton. Despite the heavy religious bent, analysts believe that the film will play to both faith-based and mainstream audiences and predict a $20 million five-day opening for the $12 million film.

Box office report: 'Captain America' fights off competition with $41.4 million weekend

Captain America: The Winter Soldier warded off newcomers this weekend and remains king of the hill with $41.4 million in its second weekend of release. The Marvel actioner dropped just 56 percent from its opening weekend and the film’s domestic total now stands at $159 million — close to 90 percent of the lifetime gross of the original, thank you very much — with global receipts already pushing $476.7 million.

Box office update: 'Rio 2' wins by a beak on Friday with $12 million

In the first true horse race of the year, the family-friendly Rio 2 narrowly flew past Captain America: The Winter Soldier to take the Friday top spot. Rio 2, the tropical fantasy about birds, friendship, and primary colors, also beat out its predecessor’s opening numbers. Rio – the first movie I ever took my young daughter to, incidentally — earned $10.2 million when it opened on Friday back in April 2011. This bodes well for the Fox/Blue Sky Studios 3D animated movie’s chances of besting the original’s $39.3 million opening weekend haul.

Captain America, which torched the competition last weekend with $95 million, was forced to settle for a close second with $11.9 million. Meanwhile, the new horror flick Oculus, which scared up $4.9 million, fended off the crinkly-eyed advances of Kevin Costner in his sports flick wheelhouse Draft Day for third place.

Rounding out the Top 5 is the YA chest-and heart-thumper Divergent, which rallied for $2.4 million in its fourth week of release. READ FULL STORY

Box office preview: Captain America takes on 'Rio 2,' 'Oculus,' and 'Draft Day'

Last week, Captain America flew into competition-free skies and collected a cool $95 million across its first three days in theaters. The Marvel super-sequel won’t be so lucky in week two, as it goes up against three vastly different genres (a sports pic, a horror film, and an animated romp), but The Winter Soldier will still dominate the weekend.

Here’s how things might play out: READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'Captain America' soars with $96.2 million weekend

 

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is yet another piece of evidence that Marvel’s formula for its behemoth superhero film franchise is exactly what audiences want.

The sequel to the 2011 original starring Chris Evans as the Super Soldier grossed an estimated $96.2 million this opening weekend, setting a record for best April opening and earning an “A” CinemaScore from its audiences. READ FULL STORY
