captain-america-vs-transcen

The box office was ruled over by Captain America the past two weekends, but how did The Winter Soldier fare against Johnny Depp and his techno-thriller?

Quite well, actually. In fact, Depp’s TRANSCENDENCE didn’t earn enough to even reach the Top 3. None of the new-comers were able to earn as much as either of the top 2 films from last week. Captain America moves beyond the $200 M mark domestically as its third weekend at the box office concludes. Rio 2 just exceeded $75 M in earnings, adding $22.5 M this weekend.

Here’s a list of movies that hit the theater this past weekend:
