If you look at the numbers, Yes Captain America: The Winter Solider is the winner of Easter weekend. Yet, if you look past the horror that is Transcendence, there is a new terror on the horizon. A Haunted House 2 took in over 9 million dollars this weekend. This mans a third film is probably already in the works. Captain America and Rio sequels did decent numbers for a holiday weekend, that at least three religious films in it. I truly doubt that Captain America can do it one more time. 


Ray Subers of Box Office Mojo had this report: “The Marvel sequel added $26.6 million this weekend, which represents a light 36 percent decline. It reached $200 million on Sunday, and should pass Thor: The Dark World in the next few days.


Rio 2 repeated in second place with $22.5 million. Its 43 percent drop was much steeper than the first Rio's 33 percent dip on the exact same weekend in 2011. Through 10 days, the animated sequel has grossed $75.4 million”.
