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.

A Haunted House 2 opened in fifth place with $8.8 million.
