In second place was Captain America: The Winter Soldier. After three weekends in first place, Captain America was finally bumped off its pedestal. However, the film still took in $16 million, which is only a 37% drop from last weekend. So far, The Winter Soldier has brought in $224.8 million in the US and a total of $645.1 million worldwide. A total around $800-$850 million worldwide and $270 domestic sounds reasonable at this point. TriStar's Heaven is for Real finished in third place with $13.8 million, a 39% drop from last weekend. The low-budget hit has now grossed $51.9 million, which is quite amazing. Look for Heaven is for Real to stay strong throughout the coming month.
Rio 2 finished in fourth place with $13.6 million, just behind Heaven is for Real. The animated comedy will face a little bit of competition with Legends of Oz in the coming weeks, but with a small 38% drop from last weekend, this film looks like it will keep going strong. Rio 2 has now grossed $96.1 million. In fifth place was Brick Mansions, which features one of Paul Walker's final performances. The action flick finished with $9.6 million, which is pretty solid. Brick Mansions also pulled in a "B+" Cinemascore, which is decent. However, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 next weekend, I doubt that Brick Mansions will hold on for much longer.
Transcendence plummeted 62% to sixth place this weekend, finishing with $4.1 million. The massive flop has now grossed $18.4 million. It's a terrible movie and I'm really not surprised that it has flopped. Summit's The Quiet Ones also disappointed this weekend, finishing in seventh place with $4 million. That's a lackluster total and the "C+" Cinemascore isn't much better. However, Lionsgate and Summit are quick to point out that it was just an acquisition and won't cost the studio any money.
Disneynature's Bears took a small plunge this weekend, finishing in eighth place with $3.6 million. The nature documentary missed the top ten last weekend, but managed to keep a stronger hold than some of its competition. The film has now grossed $11.1 million. Divergent also stayed strong this weekend, finishing in ninth place with $3.6 million. The YA hit has now grossed $139.4 million. A total around $150 million seems likely at this point. And finally, A Haunted House 2 rounded out the top ten with $3.2 million. The comedy has now grossed $14.2 million.
Next weekend sees the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Here are my predictions:
1. The Amazing Spider-Man 2- $91.5 million
2. The Other Woman- $14.2 million
3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier- $9.1 million
4. Heaven is for Real- $8.6 million
5. Rio 2- $7.4 million
6. Brick Mansions- $5.6 million
7. Bears- $3.1 million
8. Transcendence- $1.7 million
9. The Quiet Ones- $1.6 million
10. Divergent- $1.5 million
