Weekend Box Office: Winter Soldiers Holds Top Spot Against Rio 2 And Oculus
After a competition-free opening last weekend, Captain America: The Winter Soldier managed to hold on to the number one spot yet again with three newcomers encroaching on its audiences.
The latest in the Marvel franchise added $41 million to its $159 million domestic total and $476 million world-wide total. That was just enough to edge out Rio 2. The animated sequel banked $39 million for a close second, almost the exact amount that Rio earned when it opened in 2011.
Horror flick Oculus made its way to theaters on a traditionally low horror flick budget. At a price tag of just $5 million it's already a financial success, taking third place with $12 million. Sports drama Draft Day didn't enjoy much of a boost from headliners Kevin Costner, Denis Leary and Jennifer Garner. It got a fourth place pick with just $9 million.
