Three new movies opened over the weekend and the only one that put up a fight with last week’s #1 movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, was Rio 2. Rio 2 opened at #1 on Friday, but Cap took the title back over the weekend with $41.4 million for the Friday to Sunday period. Rio 2, which took in a respectable $39 million, ended up in 2nd place.
Even if we combine the earnings of the other two new movies, Oculus and Draft Day (3rd and 4th, respectively) they still don’t come close to Rio 2. Divergent rounded out the Top 5 with another $7.5 million.
Here is the Top 10 for the weekend of April 11 – 13, 2014:
1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($41.4M)
2. Rio 2 ($39.0M)
3. Oculus ($12.0M)
4. Draft Day ($9.8M)
5. Divergent ($7.5M)
6. Noah ($7.4M)
7. God’s Not Dead ($5.5M)
8. The Grand Budapest Hotel ($4.0M)
9. Muppets Most Wanted ($2.2M)
10. Mr. Peabody & Sherman ($1.8M)
