Welcome to another edition of WEEKEND ROUNDUP, where we discuss this weekends box office results. The TOP 3 this weekend were The Other Woman, Heaven Is For Real, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
This week's new comedy, The Other Woman, managed to out do the box office juggernaut, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, pushing it down to the #2 spot. This, however, didn't stop CA:TWS from becoming the highest-grossing April release of all time. Last week's religious-themed hit, Heaven Is For Real, was able to knock out Rio 2 to hold on to a spot in the Top 3 for another week.
Let's take a look at how the Top 3 did this weekend...
1. THE OTHER WOMAN
This year's newest comedy, The Other Woman, has taken the box office by storm, beating out Marvel's most recent juggernaut, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It managed to bring in $24.7 million on a $40 million production budget. Combined with the foreign grosses, it's worldwide total came out to $45.2 million.
