The weekend's top box office pair of contenders revved a lively race for April 11 through April 13's number 1 ranking. While "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" had no thawing signs of ticket sales at $41.2 million, the early Spring race shares a limelight just as much as second place's "Rio 2".
Both Marvel's super-soldier flick and Fox's animation are sequels that spurned the other domestic films out in theaters. Breakaway might preamble the rising forecast for animation's ongoing slate into the industry's rounding halo of record's benchmarks.
For one, "Frozen" marks the best of all worldwide rankings in film history, slotting at 8th on a twenty-first weeks run currently matching on $1.1 billion gross. Disney's animated hit encroaches on 7th, which is currently on the tenancy of "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King".
With "Rio 2" off to such a great start with $39.3 million, that worldwide listing isn't close in sighting but a high run at the domestic listing is something to watch for this pre-Summer faring.
Of the enumerations down the sequential Top 5 a mixed bag ensues on the start off a movie with some Intrepid. "Oculus", Intrepid Picture's horror, had a weekend gain of $12. mil. Lionsgate and Summit saw their sports drama - starring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner - "Draft Day" hit along a $9.7 million accumulation. At fifth and $7.5 million, comes Paramount's version of Russell Crowe playing "Noah" on the 2nd ongoing week.
A move by "Rio 2" to overtake the Winter Soldier's clashing vendetta against Captain America is a potential facing delay from the oncoming premiere of "Transcendence" featuring Johnny Depp and TriStar Pictures' "Heaven is for Real" during April 18 to April 20.
