'Heaven Is For Real' Takes First Place with $3.7 Million; 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Crosses $170 Million DomesticallyApril 17, 2014 06:55 AM

by Shawn Robbins

Sony reports that Heaven Is for Real bowed to a strong $3.7 million on Wednesday, claiming first place in the process. That figure tops the $3.64 million Friday debut of April 2011's Soul Surfer, a fellow faith-based film also distributed by Sony. With Easter weekend still ahead and a strong push for pre-sales among church crowds, Heaven is set to post a very healthy 5-day opening.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier grabbed another $3.52 million yesterday as it slipped into second place. That figure was down 25 percent from Tuesday and just 27 percent from Wednesday of last week. Through 13 days of release, Winter Soldier's $170.6 million domestic take is 12 percent ahead of Thor: The Dark World at the same point.

Rio 2 dropped 29 percent from Tuesday to add $3.03 million yesterday. The animated sequel's 6-day take is $49.3 million, or about 2 percent behind the pace of the 2011 original film.

Kevin Costner's Draft Day earned $0.83 million on Wednesday, off 34 percent from Tuesday. The sports drama's 6-day gross is $12.7 million, about 15 percent behind Costner's 3 Days to Kill.

Rounding out the top five, Oculus posted a 24 percent decline from Tuesday as it took in $0.87 million yesterday. The horror flick's 6-day tally is $14.97 million--3 percent ahead of House at the End of the Street.
