LOS ANGELES (AP) - Captain America continues to vanquish box office foes, triumphing in ticket sales for the third consecutive week and beating formidable contender Johnny Depp.

According to studio estimates Sunday, the Marvel sequel added another $26 million to its coffers, while Depp's sci-fi thriller, "Transcendence," opened in fourth place.

Another newcomer, the religious film "Heaven Is for Real," debuted in third place, while another sequel, "Rio 2," held on to second.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" set a box-office record as the biggest April release ever when it opened with more than $96 million in domestic ticket sales. Starring Chris Evans as Capt. America and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, the Disney release has earned more than $200 million to date in North America - the 12th Marvel film to do so.
