While it didn't take a Black Widow flick, it wasn't without a superheroine effort by "The Other Woman".

Fox's newest comedy-drama and starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton hit their debut weekend with a surgent $24.7 million gain at the movies. With Nick Cassavetes taking a hand at the directing till, the movie entered the ranks of openers for Cameron Diaz at a tenth spot. A rank falling respectively just below "The Green Hornet"; "Bad Teacher"; "Vanilla Sky". "Shrek the Third" tops the listing.

And the fall by "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" into second hasn't the caveat of waning from being the top grosser for 2014 worldwide. At $645.2 mil on an international box office, on domestic for the last three-day it hit $16. million.

The significant commercial drop attracting movie audiences frames "Rio 2", which just last weekend was at 3rd place a week following a 2nd rank debut. Even with the animation giving Fox a pair of slatings in the Top 5, the $13.8 million wasn't strong enough to stem back "Heaven is Real" from rising up to 2nd. A rise accumulating $14.3 mil.

"Brick Mansions", the posthumous Paul Walker starring action film, closes out the Top 5 at $9.5 million box office high.

A skyline featuring a whole new superhero franchise outside the Marvel Cinematic is swinging into theaters, debuting on May's debut weekend. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" from Columbia Pictures returns Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone on to the Silver Screen on May 1.
