Surprise, surprise; Captain America The Winter Soldier was number one at the box office. The real surprise was its $96.2 million intake. Boy was I close. So close, that I’m going to call it a win. Cap n ’crew have already made a worldwide gross of $303 million. Go Marvel!
Noah drifted to number to with an impressive $17 million for its second week in release. That bloated budget is going to hurt, but with all the controversy and multi-country banning, this film should stick around for at least 40 days and 40 nights.
Divergent dropped one spot to number three with $13 million. It’s no Hunger Games, but this franchise is alive and well and we’ll definitely enjoy this whole trilogy on the big screen.
God’s Not Dead climbed up a notch to number four with $7.7 million. This indie dark horse came out of nowhere and has scooped up a total domestic gross of $32 million so far.
The Grand Budapest Hotel also upgraded one spot coming in at number five with $6.3 million.
Muppets Most Wanted isn’t living up to its title, falling to number six after just 3 weeks I release. It ain’t easy being green. Or lack thereof in this case.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman scored another $5.3 million for a total domestic gross of $102 million. But, it’s still so far from its $145 million budget, I can’t call this one a win.
Sabotage fell to number eight with $1.9 million. Time to hang up the ol’ action hero hat Mr. Schwarzenegger.
Need for Speed needed some more tickets sales, coming in at number nine with $1.8 million. Maybe there’ll be a Breaking Bad movie to which Aaron Paul can go crawling back?
Non-Stop was just that, rounding out the top ten with another $1.8 million.

Next week Rio 2, Draft Day, and Oculus will all take on the Cap… and lose…miserably. Look for Captain America The Winter Soldier to reign supreme for the second week in a row. Tune in to see if I’m right!
Until then, happy movie going.
