Weekend Roundup: Box Office Results for 4/4-4/6


Welcome to another edition of WEEKEND ROUNDUP, where we discuss this weekends box office results.  The TOP 3 this weekend were Divergent, Noah, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

This week, Marvel's newest installment in Phase 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, dominated the box office.  This caused last weeks top two films to bump down to the #2 and #3 spots this week, each with significantly lower grosses than CA:TWS.

FROZEN UPDATE:  In its 20th week on the big screen, Frozen has brought in a worldwide total of $1.097 billion, making it the 9th highest-grossing film of all time, beating out The Dark Knight.

Let's take a look at how the Top 3 did this weekend...


Knocking it out of the park this week was Marvel Studio's latest Phase 2 film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, bringing in an astonishing $95 million.  Combined with the foreign grosses, which were more than twice the domestic, CA:TWS has already made a worldwide total of $302.1 million.  This makes it the highest-grossing April opening weekend of all time.  It has also beat the original film's foreign market total in just three days.


Darren Aronofsky's newest film, Noah, takes quite a drop this week, bringing in only $17 million.  This brings it up to $72.4 million domestically and $178.6 million worldwide.  Will it be able to bounce back after the opening release of CA:TWS?  Most likely not, but only time will tell.


In its third week out, Divergent took a bit of a dive at the box office, bringing in a mere $12.9 million.  That puts it at a total of $136.4 million.  CA:TWS has taken another victim, causing such a severe drop, but will it rebound in the coming weeks?

Here's a quick rundown of this weekends results:

#1 - Captain America: The Winter Soldier - $95,023,721

#2 - Noah - $17,045,744

#3 - Divergent - $12,976,413
