'Angry Birds' flocks to No. 1 over 'Neighbors,' 'Nice Guys'
LOS ANGELES - "Captain America" has found a worthy competitor in a bunch of flightless birds. "The Angry Birds Movie" soared to $39 million in its debut weekend, knocking "Captain America: Civil War" off its first-place perch, according to comScore estimates Sunday.
"Civil War" earned an additional $33.1 million for a second-place spot, bringing its domestic total to $347.4 million. Even in its third weekend in theaters, the superhero proved mightier than a batch of new adult comedies, "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising" and "The Nice Guys," which took the third- and fourth-place spots.
"Neighbors 2" brought in $21.8 million in its debut weekend - less than half of the first film's $49 million opening in 2014. The 70s throwback buddy comedy "The Nice Guys," meanwhile, grossed $11.3 million.
