‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ Takes Top Box Office Spot From Harry Potter Finale

Harry Potter may have destroyed opening weekend box office records after a huge showing last week but the movie has already been unseated by another hero flick, Captain America: The First Avenger.

The comic book adaptation took in $65.8 million while showing on both 3D and traditional movie screens, while Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 brought in a still impressive second week take of $48.1 million, although that movie was down 72% over last week’s opening numbers.

Other notables include the low budget Friends With Benefits at $18.5 million, Transformers with$12 million after more than a month in theathers and Horrible Bosses, another low budget film which brought in $11.7 million.
