‘The Other Woman’ Curbs ‘Captain America’ With $24.7M
LOS ANGELES (AP) — After holding the top position at the box office for three weeks, femme-fueled “The Other Woman” has beat superhero blockbuster “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” for the No. 1 spot in its opening weekend.
Fox’s raunchy revenge comedy, starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, debuted with $24.7 million, while Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America,” led by Chris Evans, grossed $16 million in its fourth weekend, bringing its domestic total to $225 million.
Sony’s faith-based “Heaven Is for Real” held the third place position with $13.8 million after opening in the same slot last weekend behind leaders “Captain America” and Fox’s animated “Rio 2,” which drifted down to fourth place with $13.7 million.
Relativity Media’s action crime drama “Brick Mansions,” starring the late Paul Walker, was No. 5 with $9.6 million.
