The makers of "The Angry Birds Movie" should be very happy with this weekend's box-office receipts — the film adaptation of the popular video game soared to a $39-million opening weekend, according to Variety.

Sony's animated flick flew past newcomers "Neighbors 2" and "The Nice Guys," generating an A+ CinemaScore rating from under-25 moviegoers.

"Neighbors 2" performed solidly, but was 55% off from the first in the series.

The weekend's Top 5:

(1) "The Angry Birds Movie," $39 million

(2) "Captain America," $33.1 million

(3) "Neighbors 2," $21.8 million

(4) "The Nice Guys," $11.3 million

(5) "The Jungle Book," $11 million
