Fox's The Other Woman took in $2.60 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a fifth consecutive day. The comedy starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton was up a healthy 36 percent over Monday, which represented one of the day's stronger daily percentage holds among wide releases. The Other Woman continues to exceed expectations with a strong five-day start of $29.28 million and will surpass the $30 million mark today. The film is currently running 24.5 percent ahead of the $23.52 million five-day take of 2008's What Happens in Vegas.
Heaven is for Real was up one spot and a strong 38 percent over Monday to claim second on Tuesday with $1.39 million. Sony's break-out faith-based drama was down 43 percent from last Tuesday. Heaven is for Real continues to distance itself from expectations with a 14-day take of $54.86 million. The film is likely to continue to hold up well going forward thanks to strong word of mouth and from serving as a potential alternative to May's heavy line-up of likely blockbusters.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier was down one spot from Monday to land in third with $1.34 million. The blockbuster 3D superhero sequel from Disney and Marvel increased 26 percent over Monday and was down 39 percent from last Tuesday. Captain America: The Winter Soldier has grossed $227.47 million in 26 days, which places the film an impressive 21 percent ahead of the $187.89 million 26-day take of last year's Thor: The Dark World.
Relativity's Brick Mansions grossed $0.799 million to remain in fourth. The modestly budgeted action thriller starring the late Paul Walker was up 26 percent over Monday. Brick Mansions has grossed $10.95 million through five days of release. While that is towards the higher end of pre-release expectations, it is also quite likely that the film will be front-loaded towards is opening week performance.
Fox's Rio 2 rounded out Tuesday's top five with $0.741 million. The 3D computer animated sequel was up 29 percent from Sunday and down 61.5 percent from last Tuesday. With a 19-day take of $97.70 million, Rio 2 is just $2.30 million away from reaching the $100 million domestic mark and is running 7 percent behind the $105.47 million 19-day take of 2011's Rio.
