'Captain America' holds onto top box office spot

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Captain America really is unbeatable - at least at the box office

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" has been the top draw at theaters for three consecutive weeks, vanquishing would-be foes including the new thriller starring Johnny Depp.

According to Monday's final box office figures, the Marvel sequel added $25.6 million in ticket sales over the weekend. "The Winter Soldier" has made more than $200 million domestically since logging the best April opening in history.

"Heaven Is for Real" did better than analysts expected over the Easter holiday, opening in second place with $22.5 million. The animated sequel "Rio 2" held onto the third spot, ahead of Depp's disappointing debut of "Transcendence," which opened in fourth place with $10.9 million.
