There were several new movie additions to the Box Office this weekend, but that didn’t stop Captain America from coming out on top. New to theaters this past weekend were “Rio 2,” the horror flick “Oculus,” and NFL drama “Draft Day.” On Monday, April 14, the Box Office updated their weekly charts to feature the top 10 movies of the weekend.
Last weekend, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” had the advantage of being released without any competitors. Not that it needed the head-start, Marvel movies always rise to the top. Proof of that is all over this weekend, as three new debuts opened in theaters and the Captain still took them down despite it being its second week.
Estimates from the source and CominSoon.net feature films that have been kicked out of the top 10 or simply did not make the cut this weekend. These movies include: Foreign film “The Raid 2,” “Non-Stop,” “Need for Speed,” and “Bad Words.” Liam Neeson’s “Non-Stop” leaves the chart with a worldwide total of $179.6 million.
“Need for Speed” hung by a thread last week when it was number nine. Now at number 13, it has left the top 10 with a worldwide total of $185 million. This sum isn’t very good at all, considering its $105 million budget and all the hype that the race movie advertised. Production had high hopes for this film, since Aaron Paul, famous for the role of Jesse Pinkman in “Breaking Bad,” is attached to the project.
Finally, Jason Bateman’s comedy “Bad Words” landed at number 14 with a worldwide total of $113.3 million. It has been in theaters for exactly a month, with a release date of March 14. It opened with $37.8 thousand.
Check out the top 10 movies of the weekend below. These are calculated from Friday, April 11, through Sunday, April 13. Which movies did you go watch?
