Weekend B.O. April 11-13 (Close, But No Cigar)

Shadow and Act By Sergio | Shadow and Act April 13, 2014 at 12:25PM

It was a neck-and-neck race this weekend, but one film had to win
1
Rio 2

I think I saw the first Rio. I remember seeing an animated film a few years ago with a lot of bright, pretty colors. And that’s about all I can remember.

2011’s Rio was one of those sneaky “how-did-that-film-make-the-kind-of-money?” kind of movie, earning $485 million worldwide. You know, that kind of film that just opens up with no one really paying attention to it; you don’t hear anyone talking about it, and yet, before you know it, it’s made a ton of money, even though you don’t know of a single person who's even saw it. Well, that was Rio.

Eventually a lot of parents took their kids to see it because it was safe, and the all the bright colors would dazzle their kids into a stupor for at least a couple hours. And then they could do it again when the DVD came out, or when it was on cable TV.

So I guess that explains why Rio 2 unexpectedly gave Captain America: The Winter Soldier a neck-to-neck race to the finish this weekend, with the Captain coming in first again, but just barely, with about $41.4 million. Rio 2 came in a very close second with $39 million.

However, Captain has also grossed $318 million overseas to date, which means that the film has earned over $477 million to date. It may not reach a billion worldwide, but $750-800 million is definitely very possible, and Marvel sure wouldn't be complaining.

In third place this week was the Relativity horror film Oculus, which got very mixed reviews, and coming in fourth place was the NFL-promo-designed-as-a-Kevin Costner film, Draft Day.

And in case you’ve been wondering 12 Years a Slave has grossed $178. 3 million worldwide to date.
