Captain America: The Winter Soldier has debuted in the number one spot at the US box office.



The Marvel sequel - which stars Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson - broke April box office records by taking an estimated $96.2 million on its opening weekend.

It surpasses the previous April record set by Fast Five, which collected $86.2 million in ticket sales in April 2011.

Captain America comfortably beat its nearest competition, Russell Crowe's Noah, which took an estimated $17m in second spot.

Dystopian thriller Divergent slipped to number three and took $13m in ticket sales, bringing its total in the US and Canada to $114 million since its release on March 21.

God's Not Dead (4) and The Grand Budapest Hotel (5) each rose one place on the latest countdown. The independently-released Christian movie took $7.7m, while the Ralph Fiennes comedy grossed $6.3m.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Sabotage - which opened poorly last weekend - took $1.9m this time around, slipping to eighth place at the domestic box office.

Muppets Most Wanted, Mr Peabody and Sherman, Need For Speed and Non-Stop also featured in this week's top ten.
