THE OTHER WOMAN LEAVES CAPTAIN AMERICA IN THE DUST

April 27, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

In its fourth weekend, Captain America: The Winter Soldier proved to be no match for The Other Woman. The opening of the revenge comedy produced an estimated $25 million in ticket sales and left the superhero sequel far behind with about $16 million, down 37 percent from the previous week, when it reigned as the No. 1 film for the third consecutive week. In its second week, the faith-based Heaven Is for Real, which landed at No. 2 last week, slipped a notch to No. 3 with $13.8 million. It ended up in a virtual tie with Rio 2, which reported $13.65 million in sales. The two films could reverse positions when final results are disclosed on Monday afternoon. The opening of Brick Mansions, the last complete film that Paul Walker starred in before his untimely death in November, earned just $9.6 million, a so-so result for a film that cost $28 million to produce. But the horror flick The Quiet Ones apparently played to a lot of quiet houses as it debuted in seventh place with $4 million. Meanwhile, Disney’s Frozen, which is still playing in 227 theaters despite being out on home video since March 18, brought in an additional $152,000 — enough to push it past the $400-million mark to $400.14 million at the domestic box office.


The top ten films for the weekend, according to studio estimates compiled by Rentrak:

1. The Other Woman, $24.7 million; 2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, $16 million; 3. Heaven Is for Real, $13.8 million; 4. Rio 2, 13.7 million; 5. Brick Mansions, $9.6 million; 6. Transcendence, $4.1 million; 7. The Quiet Ones, $4 million; 8. Bears, $3.6 million; 9. Divergent, $3.6 million; 10. A Haunted House 2, $3.3 million.
