'Captain America' maintains momentum at weekend box office over 'Rio 2'

Every single weekend, studios wait in anticipation to see impressive numbers at the box office and every weekend, I cannot help but think about Arthur Abbott and his wise words from from "The Holiday" (2006). While I cannot find the exact quote, I can remember him stating that box office success did not dictate the success of whether a film was deemed successful or not. This is not so much the case now, which makes a lot of people yearn for the days of old Hollywood once more. The days where a movie could have a longer run and build up success by word of mouth. People miss the days as Arthur states where the box office results were not reported like "like baseball scores on the nightly news." Despite this, we all eagerly await the results each and every weekend.
