Holdovers "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Rio 2" ruled the box office on Friday, while the new Johnny Depp sci-fi film "Transcendence" experienced a system crash -- trailing behind fellow newcomer "Heaven is For Real."  Marvel's "Captain America" continued its reign as box office champ, commanding another $9.5 million. Its domestic total stands at a heroic $184 million. It should earn in excess of $25 million for the weekend, placing it past the $200 million goal, and leaving the 2011 original in the dust.  Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford and Samuel L. Jackson star. The animated sequel "Rio 2" flew to $9.2 million for No. 2, rising its domestic haul to a hearty $62 million. It will likely earn around $23 million through Sunday.  Proving that the recent success of "God's Not Dead" was no fluke, the release of the faith-based "Heaven Is For Real" -- coinciding with Easter weekend -- was blessed with a suprisingly huge $7.8 million in Friday. »
