The-Other-Woman-Scores-At-The-US-Box-Office

The reviews have been largely negative, but the audience has spoken and female bonding/revenge comedy The Other Woman opened to a solid if unspectacular $24.7 million Stateside this weekend. Woman, which stars Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton as three strangers who realise they’re all seeing the same guy, actually saw its takings rise between Friday and Saturday, which usually points to good word of mouth. It remains to be seen whether this has the legs necessary to make it truly successful and smash its modest $40 million budget, but it's a strong result.

Despite being dislodged from its command chair, Captain America: The Winter Soldier held well, dropping just one place to second and taking in $16 million. The latest Marvel offering is now past $224 million in the States and closing on $650 million worldwide, snagging the title of highest-grossing April opening along the way and passing Iron Man 2 on the global chart of Marvel stablemates.

That stayed ahead of Heaven Is For Real, which actually managed to land second place last weekend when the final figures were revealed, but had to make do with third this time out. Still, the faith-based movie added $13.8 million to its total, crossing $51 million in the States.

Rio 2 was knocked down to fourth, earning $13.6 million. In fifth place, we find Brick Mansions, the remake of District 13, which has had to tread a careful line in its marketing campaign following the death of star Paul Walker. The movie earned a decent $9.6 million, but may do more business overseas.

Transcendence, which is already being talked about as one of the year’s big flops – though again, it remains to be seen what worldwide audiences make of it – was down to sixth place with $4.1 million and $18.4 million overall. With production company Alcon carrying the majority of the risk on the $100 million budget, the team stands to lose around $30 million on the Johnny Depp-starring sci-fi drama.

In seventh, Hammer and Lionsgate’s new horror The Quiet Ones had a sluggish start, earning just $4 million in its first weekend. The figure is below the companies’ relatively modest expectations and scored badly with audiences. Disney’s new nature doc Bears jumped up a couple of places to eighth with $3.6 million, while Divergent fell to ninth ($3.6 million) and A Haunted House 2 sank to 10th with $3.2 million.

To see Cameron Diaz defeat a superhero in the full chart listings, head to Box Office Mojo.
