Captain America wins the weekend!

It didn’t look good for Captain America: The Winter Soldier late Friday night. Every major news outlet came out and stated that Rio 2 was surpassing Captain America. However, whether it was the nice weather or people finally getting around to it, Captain America would, narrowly, take the weekend from the animated bird sequel. 

Ray Subers of Box Office Mojo had this to report: “So far, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has earned $159 million at the domestic box office. If it remains on pace with the Thor and Iron Man sequels, it will finish with at least $225 million.

Playing at 3,948 locations, Rio 2 wasn't far behind with $39 million. That's essentially identical to the first Rio's $39.2 million debut around the same time in 2011. Among recent animated movies, it's noticeably higher than Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 ($34 million) and Mr. Peabody & Sherman ($32.2 million)”.

I think this is basically a tie between CA and Rio2.  The difference of a few million doesn't mean much on the level they are working at. I never consider it a competition in my head between the movies to stay number one. I only want the movies I like to end up doing well. Still....in my heart I'm happy CA is still number one.

Marvel was smart putting Cap in early April. Had this movie been sandwiched between Spidey 2 and X-men DoFP, it probably wouldn't have done so much. The movie still has 2 more weeks of box office earnings and the only big competition is Rio 2.

Went to see "Draft Day" last night.  For those of you Maniacs who like the NFL, watch it, it was a really good sports movie.  I am glad to see Kevin Costner back in leading roles again, he's a great actor.

Interesting. I'm a Browns fan so this might interest me.

Cant' go wrong with Jen Garner either.

ElBaz, if you're a Browns fan, DEFINITLY go see it..................

ElBaz13 4/14/2014 3:51:27 PM

But I might be disappointed knowing a fictional Browns franchise is better than the real thing!

LOL!

"Transcendence" looks like crap.  It could be and may be awesome, but from what I've seen... it looks awful.

HAIL HYDRA!!!!!

 CA was great, great, great. I looked and found that the Draft Day budget was 25M. That's too bad it didn't do so well, I hope it has a good week #2. Was this a bad time? Why not open two weeks later when the actual draft is two weeks away? I didn't see it yet, but I am sure that I will enjoy it. KC fan, JG fan, and I enjoy football. Maybe picking Dalls, NY, NE, or Chicago would have helped. The Browns haven't been a playoff machine in decades.

Looking at this list and realizing that Sherman and Mr. Peabody has grossed almost twice as much at the box office as films like The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle and 4 times as much as 12 Years a Slave makes me realize that there is absolutely no correlation between box office receipts and good cinema.
