Holding on to third place was the female-centric comedy The Other Woman, starring Cameron DiazLeslie Mann and Kate Upton — and a cameo appearance by Nicki Minaj — which earned an additional $9.6 million.

Rounding out the top five are faith-based film Heaven Is Real and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which brought in $7 million and $5.6 million, respectively.

Next week, a high-class reboot of Godzilla goes up against Half of a Yellow Sun, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and Thandie Newton, and Jon Hamm's sports drama, Million Dollar Arm.
