CAPTAIN AMERICA: TWS Takes Down THE LEGO MOVIE As Top U.S. Performer For 2014
This weekend the sometimes Avenger and more often noted Ninety-year old Virgin Steve Rogers finally overtook the heroes of the Lego Universe from the Lego Movie to move up one slot to tops in the United States market for 2014.
Both movies are inching towards final totals of 256-258 million. It will be interesting to see if Captain America the Winter Soldier's US mark is strong enough to hold off Bay's Transformers and other contenders eager to take the US crown.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is just short of the 700 million mark internationally after this weekend. It should get there Wednesday or Thursday. Its pace is slowing down in its effort to catch Captain America for the International top Box Office whose total stands around 710 million but still has more time to sling up some more moola. My personal guess is that Spidey will end just shy of catching Rogers with 709 million to CAWS posting 712 million.
(Correction-Boxofficemojo hadn't fully updated international numbers at the time of the first posting)
X-Men Days of Future Past continues to put people in the seats domestically with about 14 million for the weekend. Its total now stands at 189 million domestically. It has cleared 420 Internationally for a worldwide total 609 million. The international haul indicates a total very near to ASM2 and CAWS by the end of its run.
