BOX OFFICE
'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' has largest April debut with $95 million

Reported by: Associated Press

LOS ANGELES


It took in less than the weekend estimates of $96.2 million, but "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" was still the weekend's box office hero, setting the record for the largest domestic April debut with a solid $95 million.

The comic-book-adapted sequel, starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, continues the massive success of Disney and Marvel's superhero franchise.

Paramount's biblical epic "Noah," featuring performances by Russell Crowe in the title role, Jennifer Connelly and Emma Watson, dropped drastically in its second week. After debuting with $44 million, it earned only $17 million domestically. But overall, it has still earned $72.4 million domestically.

In the world of young adult adaptations, Lionsgate's sci-fi thriller "Divergent," starring Shailene Woodley, ranked No. 3 with $13 million. It has now gained more than $114 million stateside after its third week in theaters.
