By Josh Wilding - 4/10/2014

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.

Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 both fell around 58% their 2nd week.

That means $39.9 million for Captain America TWS.

I doubt Rio take that number one spot.The movie is getting terrible reviews.
TheAbaryMan369 - 4/10/2014, 1:23 PM
I have no words on the atrocity.

[frick]ing birds. Who needs them!
Jordanstine - 4/10/2014, 1:24 PM
P.S.

However, Cap has gotten great WOM as opposed to both IM3 and TDW.

If it can get at least $43-$44 million, it would make for some great legs!

its not disney's captain America... there is no Disney Logo in there film... Also this is easily the beset CBM sense the Avengers(if not better than the avengers)

Why are people so suprised? It is a family movie. Of course it will be a monster hit..
Reasonnnn - 4/10/2014, 1:27 PM
@MARVELPSYCHO Who cares about that when you're a parent? Kids love animated films.
Spock0Clock - 4/10/2014, 1:28 PM
When I saw Winter Soldier, I sat behind a 10-year-old and his mid-30's father. The kid was actually pretty well-behaved, but it was obvious that he got bored. At one point he whispered to his dad: "This is a really long movie, isn't it?"

Kids don't like political thrillers, no matter how good and no matter how colorful you make the costumes.

Damn you HYDRA......

I blame my ex. I blame her for everything.
GinjaNinja - 4/10/2014, 1:31 PM
best* also, rio 2 looks really bad.... I didn't see the first but still, it looks like it has no storyline. But how would I know? Doesn't matter though its a family movie and will make tons.
GinjaNinja - 4/10/2014, 1:32 PM
@Dorsk that's why you don't bring your kids to a movie like that.
BatManiac - 4/10/2014, 1:33 PM
I blame my ex too Cipher. Sadly, she's not with us anymore.

Spock0Clock - 4/10/2014, 1:34 PM
@Dougie

Like I said, the kid was well-behaved. In my opinion, there was no harm in it (if you don't have a problem with your kid seeing like a million people get shot).
GinjaNinja - 4/10/2014, 1:34 PM
@dorsk, I had a quite different experience, there was a little kid in front of me, with his mom and some other lady, he cept talking during the movie about bucky. Trying to explain the movie to his mom (who obviously had no clue who the characters were past captain america) ended up getting very annoyed of the kid actually. But its just a different kind of movie. Kids who love superheroes will love the movie, kids who don't care about superheros won't care about the movie.
AlexanderLykins - 4/10/2014, 1:35 PM
What in the [frick] is Rio and Rio 2? Kids these days are terrible. I grew up with Toy story, Lion King, etc., and these kids like Rio? I will never expose my kids to this garbage.
GinjaNinja - 4/10/2014, 1:36 PM
@dork yeah no I don't see any harm. But I just say I wouoldn't let my kids see a movie with tons of swearing(ok not to much) and people getting shot left and right. not to mention there were a couple other scenes that were pretty graphic, like sitwell getting thrown into a semi
Destined - 4/10/2014, 1:36 PM
I will be seeing it again on Friday and Sunday.
ndwwrestler2 - 4/10/2014, 1:38 PM
@AlexanderLykins Please...Lion King and Toy Story weren't the only thing going on in your day sir, there was some other stuff that was worse than Rio 2.


As for topic on hand, this is

ezio619 - 4/10/2014, 1:39 PM
i had an inkling that rio 2 might take the box office,i would have loved cap to take the box office for the entire month of april until spidey came out,i thought that transcendence was caps only big competition this month but guess not
ALegendaryPanda - 4/10/2014, 1:39 PM
Man [frick] Rio 2!
AlexanderLykins - 4/10/2014, 1:40 PM
@ndwwrestler
I'm 20 [frick]ing years old. Like I would ever have kids in the first place!

MegaPrime1107 - 4/10/2014, 1:41 PM
@dougieisrollingthejays

Nah man, Rio was a fun and visually stunning film! It was pretty good. I'm not surprised Cap can't take on talking cartoon birdies.
Jordanstine - 4/10/2014, 1:42 PM
P.P.S.

Rio 2 is getting real bad reviews right now... but kids don't care about that - a durgh
ndwwrestler2 - 4/10/2014, 1:43 PM
@AlexanderLykins Whenever someone says "I would never let my kids.." , they are full of it and never had kids.

All I'm saying is during the time where our generation was watching Lion King, and Toy Story, we were also watching crap like Batman & Robin, along with Flubber starring Robin Williams.
MegaPrime1107 - 4/10/2014, 1:44 PM

I doubt Rio take that number one spot.The movie is getting terrible reviews.

Later on...please please. I pray to Thor God of Thunder, please give Cap the might to stand up against those cartoon birds, please...sniffles.

I'm not poking fun at you man, I'm just messing around, haha! See how it feels when you troll at a TASM2 article.

Rio 2 sitting at Rotten @ 55% right now.
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 4/10/2014, 1:44 PM
@Reasonn Kids do love garbage.
Pending - 4/10/2014, 1:45 PM
Man do I hate Blue Sky studios, they make a lot of mediocre garbage. It's sucks that they're in charge of the Peanuts movie.
Batman52 - 4/10/2014, 1:45 PM
Jessie Eisenberg - 1 Marvel - 0, lol I'm joking guys don't take me seriously. But when I read this article I was like..

MARVELPSYCHO79 - 4/10/2014, 1:46 PM
@MegaPrime I stand by my statement that TASM 2 looks underwhelming.
GinjaNinja - 4/10/2014, 1:46 PM
@Megaprime was it really? I didn't know. To me it doesn't look like something interesting, but hey people don't wine about the "good ole days of cartoons" There are some good ones now days too. Like Kung fo Panda, Frozen, Tangled, Dispicible me. Toy story 3. So come on homies :P
picoplaya - 4/10/2014, 1:46 PM
how much did it cost to make cap2?
Batman52 - 4/10/2014, 1:48 PM
It's only predictions anyway right? So I'm sure Cap 2 will be cool at the box office.
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 4/10/2014, 1:48 PM
That RT score for Rio 2 is going to get lower,but how low???
MercwithMouth - 4/10/2014, 1:48 PM
Can't wait for Cap2. I still gotta wait until NEXT weekend. So I'll try to help it stay in 2nd place then.
