All the wives and girlfriends who were dragged to Captain America: The Winter Soldier over the last few weekends seem to have gotten payback as The Other Woman took the top spot at the box office. The movie took in $24.7 million, not quite up to the level of a movie like Bridesmaids but still much better than recent efforts by Cameron Diaz and more recent female-focused comedies.
Cap 2 fell to second with another $16 million, putting it over $224 million domestic and it should top out over $250 million, although rival Marvel movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits this weekend and will most likely dominate ticket sales.
Heaven is for Real dropped to third with $13.8 million, putting it just under $52 million. It’s the best performing of the recent Christian aimed slew of movies.
Rio 2 and Brick Mansions rounded out the top 5, with the latter making $9.6 million, putting it on the low end of the recent Luc Besson/Europcorp movies like The Family and 3 Days to Kill.
The Quiet Ones was a massive bomb this weekend with only $4 million, the lowest ever opening for a supernatural/possession movie in over 2,000 theaters. It’s also tied for the lowest opening of the year with the already forgotten Vampire Academy.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
