It’s an Eater miracle! After 3 weeks, Captain America rose again to number one, and I correctly predicted it! Actually, that makes 5 weeks in a row now. The Cap nabbed another $26 million to add to his worldwide gross of $586 million.
Rio 2 stayed in flight at number two for the second week in a row with $22 million.
Heaven is for Real really did well, opening at number three with a five day total of $28 million. Not bad for a movie whose budget was only $12 million.
Johnny Depp transcended into the number four spot with an opening gross of just $11 million. Transcendence was made for a costly $100 million, so Depp’s star power didn’t help much.
A Haunted House 2 opened at number five with $9 million. That’s exactly half the gross to which its predecessor opened.
Draft Day was penalized 10 yards to the number six spot with $5.9 million.
Divergent fell just one spot to number seven with $5.7 million. Its worldwide gross is $209 million. These kids are headed for stardom.
Oculus plummeted five spots to number eight after its second week in release. Its total domestic gross of $21 million, however, is a huge win for the $5 million budgeted horror flick.
Noah floated in at number nine with another $5 million, bringing its worldwide gross to $290 million. Are you not entertained?
Rounding out the top ten was God’s Not Dead. This indie flick with a budget of just $2 million is one of the year’s big winners, with a total gross of $48 million.

Until then, happy movie going.
