ComingSoon.net has posted the box office estimates for this weekend which show that Captain America: The Winter Soldier was pushed out of the top spot by The Other Woman and that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 enjoyed a strong second weekend at international theaters. Here's an excerpt:
The month of April and the spring/winter movie season came to a close with only one of three new movies having much of an impact as the Cameron Diaz-Leslie Mann comedy The Other Woman (20th Century Fox) scored an impressive $24.7 million opening in 3,204 theaters, or $7.7 thousand per site. It's another solid hit from the popular Diaz, who has had consistent hits since her debut in Jim Carrey's The Mask but has once again proven definitively that she doesn't need a big name male star to have a hit as she's done before going back to 2000's Charlie's Angels.
After three weeks at #1, Marvel Studios' Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Disney) finally gave way to another movie, dropping to #2 while adding an additional $16 million to its domestic take of $225 million. It grossed an additional $16 million internationally to bring its global total to $645.2 million after a month in theaters.
Overseas, Sony Pictures' The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened in more markets including South Korea, Russia, Italy and Japan to bring in another estimated $67.2 million a week before its North American release. South Korea took in $13.4 million with another $8.9 million from Russia, $6.5 million from Italy and $5.2 million from Japan. It also opened in Taiwan, New Zealand, Turkey, the Netherlands and a number of South American countries and it will open in 30 more markets including China, Brazil and France this coming weekend. Other than Japan, the sequel opened in most markets at #1 with a greater amount than the original film with IMAX contributing $4 million to the weekend's gross on 146 screens. It has grossed $132 million internationally since opening on April 16.
