'The Other Woman' Unseats 'Captain America' Sequel and 'Rio 2' for First Place on Friday

on April 26, 2014 by BoxOffice Staff

Fox reports that The Other Woman hauled in $9.3 million on Friday, putting the comedy on track for a very healthy $24 million opening weekend. The lineup of Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton has proven to be a hit with the film's targeted female audience. Early word of mouth from the Flixster community is modest with a 69 percent score as of Saturday morning.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier added $4.5 million to its bankroll on Friday. That brings the sequel's domestic total up to $213.3 million--18.5 percent ahead of the 22-day take of Thor: The Dark World. BoxOffice projects a $15.5 million weekend.

Rio 2 grossed $3.28 million yesterday, giving it $85.8 million earned domestically in 15 days. That's 8 percent off the pace of its 2011 predecessor. BoxOffice projects a $13.2 million third weekend.

Heaven Is for Real continues to perform well post-Easter, bringing in another $4.05 million yesterday and giving it a strong $42.2 million 10-day haul. From there, BoxOffice projects the pic will take in $14 million this weekend.

Transcendence brought in $1.25 million on Friday, bringing its 8-day domestic total to a weak $15.6 million. BoxOffice projects a $4.2 million sophomore frame.

Brick Mansions, starring the late Paul Walker, posted $3.59 million in its opening day. BoxOffice projects the actor's second-to-last film will tally $10 million by the end of the weekend.

Rounding out this weekend's openers, Lionsgate's The Quiet Ones grossed a soft $1.52 mllion on Friday. The PG-13 horror flick should take in around $3.8 million for the weekend. Word of mouth appears to be struggling so far with a low 39 percent Flixster score.
