BOX OFFICE: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Heading For Huge $80+ Million Debut
There's been a lot of positive buzz surrounding Anthony and Joe Russo's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it looks like that will translate into ticket sales as a new report states that the highly anticipated will open to a whopping $80+ million next month!
Another year, another hit for Marvel Studios. According to The Hollywood Reporter, pre-release tracking for Captain America: The Winter Soldier indicates that the sequel will earn upwards of $80 million when it debuts in North America on April 4th. Some even believe that it will reach as much as $85 million, just like Thor: The Dark World did last November. This is another example of how beneficial The Avengers was to these solo movies; Captain America: The First Avenger opened with a still very impressive $65 million back in 2011. There has already been talk of a third Captain America movie from the Russo brothers, a good indication that Marvel Studios are VERY happy with what they've done with the character. How much do you guys think it will earn?
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn.
