Is was the battle of the sequels this weekend. With "Rio 2" arriving as the toughest competition to the behemoth that is "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the question was whether or not the Marvel hero could off the family friendly newcomer. And it was a close battle, but Steve Rogers emerged victorious.
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" landed in number one for the second weekend in a row despite falling 56% from the previous weekend, adding $41 million to its bank account, for an impressive $159 million so far at home that, when added to the bountiful overseas haul, gives the Marvel movie $476 million worldwide and counting. Damn. Perhaps Warner Bros. should start worrying about "Captain America 3" opening opposite "Batman Vs. Superman" in 2016.
