“Angry Birds” Flies Over “Captain America” at Box Office


Rovio Animation/Sony(NEW YORK) — The Angry Birds movie took flight in theaters over the weekend, managing to soar over the box office champ of the past two weeks, Captain America: Civil War.

The movie based on the Angry Birds game made a whopping $39 million bucks at the box office, though Civil War stayed strong in its third week in theaters, with a $33 million haul that propelled the movie’s total take past the billion dollar mark. 

Last week’s third place finisher, Money Monster starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts, was bounced back to 7th place, thanks to strong showings from newcomer Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, which took in nearly 22 million bucks. The Nice Guys, the weekend’s final new movie, opened in 4th place, with just over 11 million bucks.
