With $41.4M, 'Captain America' holds off 'Rio 2'

(Continued)

NEW YORK —

The overall box office for the year is up more than 7 percent over 2013's record box-office haul. The month of April has been propelled especially by the summer-style release of "The Winter Soldier" and a number of less likely successes.

With $39.5 million domestically, the Wes Anderson caper "The Grand Budapest Hotel" has performed exceptionally in a gradual release by Fox Searchlight. The independently released Christian film "God's Not Dead," from Freestyle Releasing, has made a whopping $40.7 million in four weeks.

Just holding in the top five was Lionsgate's teen sci-fi franchise-starter "Divergent," which added $7.5 million in its fourth week to bring its cumulative total to $124.9 million. Lionsgate announced Friday that the third installment in the series (a sequel for 2015 is already in the works) will be split into two releases. The final book in Veronica Roth's young-adult trilogy, "Allegiant," will be made into two installments, one to open in March 2016, the other in March 2017.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released on Monday.

1."Captain America: The Winter Soldier," $41.4 million ($60.6 million international).

2."Rio 2," $39 million ($62.3 million international).

3."Oculus," $12 million ($1.3 million international).

4."Draft Day," $9.8 million.

5."Divergent," $7.5 million ($23.2 million international).

6."Noah," $7.5 million ($36.2 million international).

7."God's Not Dead," $5.5 million.

8."The Grand Budapest Hotel," $4.1 million ($7.2 million international).

9."Muppets Most Wanted," $2.2 million ($2.2 million international).

10."Mr. Peabody and Sherman," $1.8 million ($3.8 million international).
