Captain America Blows Away the Box Office This Weekend Earning the Top Spot

This weekend there was no one who could even come close to the latest Marvel superhero adventure Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Their spectacular numbers earned the film the top spot at the Box Office this weekend.

The latest installation in the Captain America franchise brought in an estimated $96.2 million this weekend. The film has been out for about a week in the foreign markets before it was released in the U.S., where it has performed pretty well. Captain America: The Winter Soldier has brought in approximately $207.1 million in that time. This means the film has brought in roughly $303.3 million worldwide.

While many times a sequel will see a bit of a slump from the original, this is quite the opposite with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The second installation in the franchise earned roughly $38 million more than its predecessor. If nothing else, this shows that the studios faith in the franchise when they announced the third installation in the franchise was well founded.

Down one spot from last weekend, coming in second place this weekend is the biblical epic Noah. The film earned approximately $17 million this weekend, bringing the film’s two-week total to $72.3 million. Noah has performed slightly better in the foreign markets, earning approximately $106.2 million, which brings the film’s worldwide total to approximately $178.5 million.

Also sliding down one spot from last weekend and into the third position this weekend is the young adult sci-fi adventure Divergent. The film pulled in an estimated $13 million this weekend, which brings the film’s three-week total to $114 million.

Jumping into the fourth position this weekend, up one spot from the previous weekend is the drama God’s Not Dead. The film about a young college student whose faith is challenged by his philosophy professor brought in approximately $7.7 million. This brings the film’s 3-week domestic total to $32.5 million.

Rounding out the Top 5 this weekend is The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is up one spot from last weekend. The film brought in an estimated $6.3 million over the weekend, raising its five-week domestic total to $33.3 million. The film has performed slightly better in the foreign market, pulling in $54.3 million so far, elevating the film’s worldwide haul to $87.7 million.
