Captain America: The Winter Solider is a success both critically and financially. For the second weekend in a row the Marvel Studios film took the #1 spot this time bringing in an estimated $41 million dollars. In its first week of release the animated sequel Rio 2 came in narrowly at second with about $39 million. The horror movie Oculus had a mediocre opening with an estimated $12 million. Kevin Costner’s latest effort, Draft Day, failed to light up the boards bringing in less than $10 million dollars in its opening weekend. While Divergent hung onto the fifth spot adding another $7 million to its four-week run.

In all probability there will be a new box office champion next weekend. The Johnny Depp vehicle, Transcendence, opens this Friday and that star power should be enough to claim the top spot. What movies are you looking forward to?
