Attendance remained high at theaters over Easter weekend with Greg Kinnear finally figuring out a way to have a hit movie again.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was #1 for the third week in a row with $26.2 million. Marvel’s latest crossed $200 million domestically in three weeks as well as half a billion worldwide. It will pass Thor: The Dark World’s total domestic gross this week.

Rio 2 stayed strong in second with $22.7 million. The race for second was closer than expected with Heaven is for Real opening up to a strong $22.2 million, taking advantage of the Easter weekend. This left Transcendence to pick up the scraps. The newest from Johnny Depp opened with only $11 million. After last year’s The Lone Ranger and Transcendence, Depp needs a Pirates movie…quick.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will keep Marvel’s hot streak going. It grossed $47 million in 14 countries which is 30% above what Captain America: The Winter Soldier grossed in the same territories.
