The revenge comedy, which stars Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, opened this weekend with an estimated $24.1 million, unseating Captain America which topped the weekend box office for the past three weeks
Cameron Diaz’s comedy The Other Woman opened this weekend with an estimated $24.7 million, toppling Marvel Studios’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier off the top spot at the box office.
The Other Woman stars Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton as a wife and two mistresses who take revenge on a three-timing spouse, played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Despite a strong showing and a decent B+ CinemaScore ranking among audiences, critics were not big fans of The Other Woman: It received a mere 25% positive ranking on Rotten Tomatoes.
Captain America came in at a much weaker second this weekend, grossing $16 million after taking in $645 million globally so far, according to data from Box Office Mojo.
