Winter Soldier stuns with $96 million at the box office.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier destroyed April box-office records this weekend with a whopping $96 million in domestic ticket sales, and $303.3 million worldwide.
Coming in second place was Noah, which dropped 60 percent to $17 million. The biblical epic starring Russell Crowe has grossed $178 million globally.
Taking the third spot was Divergent, starring Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz, bringing in $13 million. Rounding out the top five were the Christian film God’s Not Dead and Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, which brought in $7.7 million and $6.3 million, respectively.
Frankie & Alice, starring Halle Berry and based on the true story of a Black go-go dancer who suffered from multiple personality disorder (one alter ego was a 7-year-old child, while another was a Southern white racist), opened in 171 theaters on Friday. The drama, for which Berry earned a Golden Globe nomination in 2012, grossed an underwhelming $350,000.
