Fandago rival MovieTickets.com is also reporting brisk sales."The film has already passed 100 million internationally after opening in 32 markets and grossing 75.2 million last weekend.

It'd be amazing if this gets to $100 million this weekend. From what I've read, it deserves that much and more. Seeing it in less than 6 hours (midnight premiere), can't freaking wait!

Fantastic movie.

Make Mine Marvel

Starkasm - 4/3/2014, 3:42 PM
Seeing it for the 3rd time in 5 days. Maybe go for 4 times before the week is done.
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 4/3/2014, 3:43 PM
I can't wait to hear about the midnight opening box office numbers tomorrow.I think this movie is going to be an event.I think this movie will open to $100 million or more.
Spock0Clock - 4/3/2014, 3:43 PM
(Not to start a Marvel vs. DC flame war, but...) I really hope this movie surpasses Man of Steel. Captain America is such a great character, but he's been dismissed as a B-Lister for so long... Being the higher box office draw than Superman himself would really make the broader media world take notice of him. Right now, the high-water marks are...

Iron Man (who would have thought that 10 years ago?)
Batman
Spider-Man
Superman
Thor

It certainly looks possible, but it's right on the bubble if these predictions are right.
Rom - 4/3/2014, 3:44 PM
The more this makes the more can be injected into the MCU.
Captain Murica frick yeah.
thor2273 - 4/3/2014, 3:44 PM
Between Cap, WrestleMania 30 and GOT this will be the best weekend ever!
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 4/3/2014, 3:45 PM
@Starkasm You've seen it that many times already?!?!Is this movie that good?
