"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" continues to soar, holding onto the top spot at the box office for a third week. This latest super-hero hit from Disney's Marvel Studios has collected $26.6 million this weekend. And it's as strong as ever. A song of praise for these colorful birds, who are celebrating at second place. The blue macaws are brought to life by Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway. And he's right - there's nothing alarming about being in the top three. The film "Heaven is for Real" placed a solid third this week, with $21.5 million earned over the weekend. The heart-felt narrative is based on a best-selling Christian book, with a boy who claims to have witnessed heaven during surgery. Will Captain America's brute strength be enough to hold onto number one? Or will it melt in the face of such sweet competition?
