This Good Friday wasn’t so great for Wally Pfister’s directorial debut, the sci-fi drama Transcendence, as the film debuted in a sub-$5 million opening.  The film barely managed to stay ahead of this weekend’s other overlooked (and for good reason) debut, A Haunted House 2, and that’s only if current estimates hold.  The Johnny Depp-starrer received no help from critics as it currently holds a 19% rating on RT, and failed to impress our own Matt Goldberg.  What did impress audiences this week, or at least a certain subsection of them, was the religious-themed Wednesday debut, Heaven Is for Real, which claims Friday’s third spot (and reclaims its budget) leading into Easter weekend.

None of the new entries, however, proved to be a contest for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Rio 2, which repeat their box office rivalry from last week.  It’s still pretty close, as estimates only separate the top two spots by a paltry (to some) $300,000 or so.  Will Cap win the weekend, or will the family-friendlier animated sequel reap the holiday audience rewards?  Check back tomorrow to find out!

Title  Friday Total
1.  Captain America: The Winter Soldier  $9,566,000 $184.5
2.  Rio 2  $9,200,000 $62.1
3.  Heaven Is for Real  $7,850,000 $14.9
4.  Transcendence  $4,815,000 $4.8
5.  Haunted House 2  $4,030,000 $4.0

    So I’m guessing we’ll be reading “Johnny Depp pushes Disney to begin production ASAP on Pirates 5″ before Friday right?

    I still have no other reason to watch anything but comicbook movies. I wish their were more options but I’m not trying to watch a movie based on just star power. Cap 2 was worth the money and I still want to see the Raid 2 but nothing else this month good. A Hunted House is the only thing diffrent but It looks crazy funny.

    Depp is part of that “Hate America First” crowd, so it’s kinda/sorta refreshing to see that turd’s flick bomb.
