For awhile it looked like the little blue animated parrots of "Rio 2" were going to take out the First Avenger, but "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" rebounded over the weekend to grab first place in the box-office race. Aside from that, there weren't any huge surprises delivered by any of this week's new movies. "Rio 2" started strong, and after taking in $12 million on Friday, in comparison to "Captain America"'s $11.9 million, the animated film seemed poised to win the weekend.
The weather's finally starting to warm up across most of the country, and theaters are starting to get crowded with big new movies. Maybe summer's on its way after all. This weekend sees a colorful new animated movie on the scene, and its ready to take on last week's big superhero movie. "Rio 2" is the splashiest of this week's new wide releases. A sequel to 2011's animated flick about rain forest creatures, it's likely to attract family audiences in droves, despite the fact that the majority of critics are not very impressed with it.
