'The Other Woman' Tops Weekend Box Office

The Other Woman is on top!

According to The Huffington Post, the Cameron Diaz led chick-flick beat out superhero blockbuster Captain America: The Winter Soldier  for the number one spot at the weekend box office. The revenge comedy, which co-stars Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, debuted at $24.7 million, while Captain America grossed just $16 million in its fourth weekend.

The film follows three women who've been wronged by the same man, a three-timing husband played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau from Game of Thrones. 

"Sometimes it's about casting," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analystic of box-office tracker Rentrak. "When you have Cameron Diaz in a comedy like this, it's hard not to knock it out of the park. The film is right in her wheelhouse. This is what she does best."
