Top 10 movies and the weekend box office (04/27/14)Loading
    1. "The Other Woman," $24.7 million ($12.8 million international).

    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.

    The release date couldn't have been better, Dergarabedian also noted. "This was the perfect time to release this film, between the success of 'Captain America' and before the official start of the summer movie season with 'Spider-Man 2.' "

    "The Other Woman" scored $12.8 million internationally, bringing its worldwide total to $45.3 million.

    2. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," $16 million ($16 million international).

    "Captain America" has now hit over $645 million globally, surpassing its 2011 original "The First Avenger," which earned $370 million. The sequel is the highest-grossing April release ever.

    6. "Transcendence," $4.1 million ($10.8 million international).

    Johnny Depp's sci-fi disappointment "Transcendence" dropped from No. 4 to No. 6 in its second weekend, earning $4.1 million. The Warner Bros. film is Depp's third consecutive flop after 2013's Western "The Lone Ranger," in which he played Tonto, and 2012 quirky vampire flick "Dark Shadows."

    Could the A-lister be losing his appeal at the box office? Depp's last film to exceed $100 million domestically was "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" in 2011. Perhaps his upcoming Disney fantasy "Into the Woods," also starring Meryl Streep, will fare better.

  • 906429 - The Amazing Spider-Man 2

    Next weekend, Sony-Marvel's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" kicks off the summer movie season with its domestic debut. The 18 weeks of summer constitutes on average 40 percent of the year's box-office earnings, Dergarabedian said.

    "Spider-Man 2" has already premiered internationally in locations like South Korea and Russia. In its second weekend of international release, it made $132 million.
