BOX OFFICE: 90-Year-Old Virgin Can't Handle THE OTHER WOMAN, 'CAP 2' Falls To 2nd
The Other Woman, starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, was not well received by critics, earning a 29% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but that didn't stop people from flocking to the theaters to see the romantic-comedy. The film pulled in $9M to $10M on Friday and is now estimated to top the box office with a $25M weekend. That'll beat recent expectations of $13M to $19M. It should have fairly strong word-of-mouth as it received a 'B+' CinemaScore from audiences. After earning $3.9M on Friday, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will finish a distant second with $13.5M. That'll put an end to the film's three week winning streak. The last two films to finish at the top of the North American box office for four straight weeks were, 2012's Hunger Games and 2008's The Dark Knight.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier has held the top spot at the North American box office for three straight weeks, and was predicted to top it once more, but The Other Woman has pulled off a superhero-sized surprise. Come check it out.
Also of note: Heaven Is For Real finished in third with $3.6M Friday, and is now estimated for a $12.5M weekend. Brick Mansions, which stars Paul Walker, took fourth place on Friday with $3.3M, but will drop to fifth for a $9M weekend. The kid-friendly Rio 2, only pulled in $2.9M on Friday, but will inch up to fourth place with $11.8M by the time the week ends.

But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn.
