Girl power is alive and well at the box office. The female-centric revenge fantasy film The Other Woman took the top spot this weekend, with $24.7 million in ticket sales. The film was able to unseat Captain America: The Winter Soldier from the top of the charts.
Meanwhile, Captain America, starring Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, and Scarlett Johansson, fell to second place after three weeks on top with $16 million.
Coming in third for the second weekend in a row was the Christian film, Heaven Is for Real, with an impressive $13.8 million gross. The faith-based film has crossed $50 million in domestic ticket sales.
Rounding out the top five were the animated move Rio 2 and Paul Walker‘s second-to-last film, Brick Mansions, which brought in $13.7 million and $9.6 million, respectively. RZA also stars in Brick Mansions.
Next week, highly anticipated period film Belle will take a bite out of the art-house audience while The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will swoop into town and, in all likelihood, claim the throne.
