Captain America 2 #1 For 3rd Straight Week; Approaching $600 Million

Captain America #2 will be the number #1 movie at the box office this weekend for the third straight time.

It's estimated that Captain America 2 will net about $26 million this weekend beating out the likes of Rio 2 for the second straight week and clobbering the new Johnny Depp movie, Transcendence (estimated to bring in about $12 million for the weekend).

Captain America 2 is also closing in on the $600 million mark worldwide with about $587 million presently.

It looks as if the April debut has been a huge success for Marvel Studios and Captain America 2 as this month really saw no competition for the movie. More than likely a few of the other movie studios will take note of that.

May looks to be an insanely busy month at the box office - and expensive for movie goers - as the Summer blockbuster season kicks off with Amazing Spider-Man 2 on May 2nd. We get a week break, but then on May 16th Godzilla stomps into theaters; May 23rd then sees X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and on May 30th the Disney Angelina Jolie movie, Maleficent, hits.
