BOX OFFICE: RIO 2 Set To Steal Top Spot From CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

After having the highest April opening of all-time, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will drop down to #2 this weekend due to the release of animated movie, Rio 2. However, it's still going to be a VERY good weekend for the Marvel Studios sequel! Read on for details...


After a record-breaking debut last weekend, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set to drop down to second place due to the release of animated movie Rio 2. In 2011, the first movie opened to $39.2 million and went on to gross $484.6 million worldwide, so a strong start for the follow-up isn't really a surprise. The Marvel Studios sequel won't suffer too much though, as it's still expected to earn between $35 - 40 million. Rio 2 meanwhile is set for $40 - 42 million, so there's a very slim chance that Captain America: The Winter Soldier could still beat it to the top spot. Basically, go and see it another dozen times this weekend! We'll be sure to keep you updated.
