The launch for Sony's animated avian tale performed in line with forecasts as did the third weekend of Disney-Marvel's "Captain America" with $33.1 million at 4,266 sites for a 54 percent decline. Universal's "Neighbors 2" finished in third with a solid $21.8 million at 3,384 screens -- although the sequel was off 55 percent from the 2014 launch of the original "Neighbors." Warner Bros.' opening of action-comedy "The Nice Guys" reeled in a moderate $11.3 million at 2,865 screens, or about half the "Neighbors 2" number as both battled for the attention of comedy fans.
