Three more films were added to the Box Office this weekend, but that didn’t stop “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” from fighting his way to the top. This is Captain’s third weekend in a row at number one. Marvel films typically win the first couple of weeks, it’s tough to compete against these heroes. On Monday, the CinemaBlend updated their charts to feature the top 10 movies of the weekend.
What did you catch in theaters this weekend? New to theaters this past Easter weekend were: “Transcendence,” “Heaven is for Real,” and “A Haunted House 2.” Below are the top 10 films. Thanks to BoxOffice.com, below are also worldwide totals and other fun facts about the movies.
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" #1
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” added $26 million this weekend. This brings its worldwide total gross to $586.6 million. The reported budget for this film is $235 million. Starring Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, and Anthony Mackie, “The Winter Soldier” is the third installment in the Phase Two Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"Rio 2" #2
At number two, “Rio 2” held on with $22.5 million. This brings its worldwide total to $277 million. The reported budget for this film is $160 million. The animated film features voices of Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Tracy Morgan, and more.
"Heaven is for Real" #3
Perfect for Easter, “Heaven is for Real” landed in theaters with $21.5 million, climbing to the third spot. This brings its worldwide total to $28.5 million. The reported budget is $33 million. Based on the bestselling book by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent, “Heaven is for Real” stars Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly, and Connor Corum.
“Transcendence” settled for fourth place with $11 million. It doesn’t look good for the sci-fi film; its worldwide total is $28.5 million against its reported $135 million budget. Having Johnny Depp, Rebecca Haul, Morgan Freeman, and Kate Mara attached to this project did not seem to help.
"A Haunted House 2" #5
Production and fans expected “A Haunted House 2” to do a lot better than $9.1 million at fifth place. Although thanks to its small budget (reportedly $20 million), the Wayans should make a decent profit.
"Draft Day" #6
The first NFL endorsed movie, “Draft Day,” touched down with $5.9 million. The football film stars Jennifer Garner, Kevin Costner, Dennis Leary, and more. It was made with a reported $50 million budget, and it’s not looking good with a worldwide total of $19.5 million so far.
The young adult film of the year (or at least until the third “Hunger Games” hits theaters), “Divergent,” is now in seventh place. It collected $5.7 million, pulling slightly ahead of eight place. Its global total is $209 million.
Horror flick “Oculus” accumulated $5.2 million this weekend. This genre isn’t exactly too requested in the springtime. Another horror film, “The Quiet Ones,” opens April 25. Its worldwide total so far is $21.3 million.
“Noah” added $5 to its total, settling for ninth place. The film stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connolly, Emma Watson, and more. Worldwide total is $290.6 million, reportedly made with a $125 million budget.
"God's Not Dead" #10
“God’s Not Dead” dropped to number 10 with $4.8 million. It is down three places from the previous weekend. With a $2 million budget and considering it is a small film, this is not a bad total.
