‘Other Woman’ curbs ‘Captain America’ with $24.7 million


LOS ANGELES (AP) — A femme-fueled comedy beat a superhero blockbuster at the box office this weekend.

After holding the top position for three weeks, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” has been topped by “The Other Woman” for the No. 1 spot.

Fox’s revenge comedy, starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, debuted with $24.7 million, while Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America,” led by Chris Evans, grossed $16 million in its fourth weekend, bringing its domestic total to $225 million.

The PG-13 rating of the Nick Cassavetes-directed “The Other Woman” — about three women wronged by a three-timing spouse played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of “Game of Thrones” — helped it draw a larger audience, said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst of box-office tracker Rentrak.

Sony’s faith-based “Heaven Is for Real” held third place with $13.8 million.
