The film, which stars Chris Evans as a scrawny World War Two
reject given super powers from an experimental serum, easily
exceeded the April take for the racing movie "Fast Five," which
collected $86.2 million in ticket sales in April 2011.
"Noah," starring Russell Crowe as the biblical figure, was
second with $17 million in ticket sales from Friday to Sunday,
and has collected $72.3 million in overall domestic sales since
opening last week, according to studio estimates.
The dystopian action film "Divergent" was third with $13
million, for a total of $114 million since its March 21 release
in U.S. and Canadian theaters.
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" was distributed by Walt
Disney. Paramount, a unit of Viacom, released "Noah."
"Divergent" was released by Lionsgate.
