‘Rio 2′ Review Roundup: ‘Captain America’ Falls To Kid’s Favorite

Sat, April 12, 2014 6:15pm EST by 15 Comments

‘Rio 2′ was Released on April 11 and it’s opening box office numbers flew right past Marvel’s ‘Captain America’ which had already broken box office records before it even opened up in the states.

The much-anticipated sequel, Rio 2, which features the voices of Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Bruno Mars, and Jamie Foxx had such huge numbers on its opening day that it was able to knock record-breaking film Captain America right out of the “number one” spot.

‘Rio 2′ Knocks ‘Captain America’ Out Of The Number One Spot At The Box Office

The film, which takes place in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro, follows Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and their three kids, who leave their domesticated life in the city of Rio for a trip through the Amazon Rainforest, where their owners Linda (Leslie Mann) and Tulio (Rodrigo Santoro) were doing an expedition that seemingly found a hidden tribe of Spix’s Macaws.

 On their way there, they are spotted in the city of Manaus by Blu and Jewel’s old nemesis Nigel (Jemaine Clement) the cockatoo, who then decides to seek revenge on the macaws. In order to exact his revenge he enlists a few minions and the heroes have to come to the rescue yet again!

The kid friendly film grossed $12 million, edging out Captain America’s $11.9 million earnings.

‘Rio 2′ — Kids Movie Flys High At The Box Office

Rio 2 brought in $375,000 from its Thursday night shows but also looks to dominate in the weekend box office. The film is on track for $44 million, versus the “first avenger’s” $41 million.

The colorful kid friendly film completely blew away the first installment of the franchise, which earned $10.2 million on Friday in April 2011.

Howdy superb website! Does running a blog such as this require
a large amount of work? I have very little expertise in computer programming but I was
hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
I understand this is off topic but I simply wanted to ask.
Thank you!
