Top 10 Movies / Weekend Box Office for 4/04/14-4/06/14 (April 4 – April 6, 2014)
|Top 10 Movies Box Office 4/4/14-4/6/14|
Captain America ruled the weekend box office this weekend (April 4 through April 6, 2014) as Captain America: The Winter Soldier absolutely dominated the weekend box office with an astounding $96.2 million in it’s first weekend. This makes it the biggest April opening in cinematic history absolutely smashing Fast Five’s $86 million weekend take in April 2011. It also beats Thor: The Dark World’s $85.7 million opening back in November 2013, which is interesting as the first Thor ended up with $181 million in US box office while Captain America: The First Avenger tallied $176.6 million by the end of it’s US run. This would make it seem, as of today, that the roles will reverse for this film and The Winter Soldier will end up beating The Dark World’s box office take. Captain America: The First Avenger opened up with $65.1 million opening weekend back in 2011. It’s certain that all of Marvel’s MCU Phase Two projects are getting a huge boost from Marvel’s The Avengers. The extremely strong reviews have certainly helped the film (See our review of Captain America: The Winter Soldier here).
Last week’s number one film, Noah dropped to second place with $17 million, while Divergent held relatively strong with an additional $13 million in it’s third week. Finally, God’s Not Dead actually gained the number of theaters it’s playing in but lost 12% of it’s box office from last week. This follows the trend of front loaded religious films like Son of God (which took an abysmal $308,000) this week, it’s sixth week.
