Wow. We all expected Captain America: The Winter Soldier to do well at the box office, but with predictions of a domestic opening of $95 -$100 million, the movie is exceeding everyone's expectations. You can get more details on the sequel's North American debut by clickng here. For now, check out the worldwide update courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter.



Overseas, where it opened ahead of its North American launch, the $170 million tentpole has already earned $132.2 million and should finish Sunday with a whopping global total of $270 million or more -- only $100 million behind the $370.6 million earned by Captain America: The First Avenger in its entire run. So far, Captain America 2 is pacing 40 percent ahead of the first film, which debuted in May 2011.


Just take a second to think about that. After being released in a handful of countries for the past couple of weeks and in North America for just a few days, the Marvel Studios sequel will be just $100 million shy of what the first movie made during its release. Marvel's dominance in theatres is hard to rival, and one can only imagine the kind of success that Captain America 3 and Thor 3 will find after the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Could we be loking at a future where all of their releases make $1 billion or more?! Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on this news below!

Wow.

Remarkable. The overall growth between the first movie and the sequel is something to applaud. The MCU monster is getting bigger and bigger.

This is gonna do it! TWS is gonna be the first non-Iron Man Marvel film to cross the billion mark!
RextheKing - 4/5/2014, 3:57 PM
I enjoyed Iron Man 3, but out of all the phase 2 films, this one deserves to hit the billion mark out of them all.
SuperCat - 4/5/2014, 4:00 PM
Damn. If it does gross a billion, it deserves it.
ricko8687 - 4/5/2014, 4:01 PM
Deserves every penny it making The Best of phase 2 so far
rockerdude22 - 4/5/2014, 4:01 PM
Congrats to TWS! Well deserved! My favorite MCU solo flick!
Omarvls - 4/5/2014, 4:02 PM
I don't think 1 Billion but maybe 700 million and it will be a BLOCKBUSTER

@MsDarkPhoenix

What was the best part for you?
grif - 4/5/2014, 4:06 PM
was just thinking of the scene with the guy gunning steve down with the mini gun and steve was blocking it with the shield. this movie is so awesome.
Tevii - 4/5/2014, 4:06 PM
Great movie. Deserves it....
James Cameron better deliver on Avatar 2 and 3 because with the momentum Marvel movies are building, Avengers II is most likely going to claim that top spot from Avatar

Incredible movie
RextheKing - 4/5/2014, 4:07 PM
Best Marvel studio films in order of best to worst(in my opinion... to add, I like every marvel studios film so far, just some better than others):
Cap2
Avengers
Iron Man
Thor
Cap TFA
Iron Man 3
Incredible Hulk
Thor 2
Iron Man 2
grif - 4/5/2014, 4:07 PM
this movie is sick as hell
REAL TALK!
SauronsBANE - 4/5/2014, 4:08 PM
Not sure it'll have the legs to reach $1 billion, but it'll certainly come close. But if it does, just like Iron Man 3, it deserves it! It almost requires repeat viewings so that'll definitely help in the box office, but it'll really depend if it faces any stiff competition in the upcoming weeks.

Really, Congrats to Marvel and all involved...Russos, absolutely killed it...Evans IS the Captain for me now, like RDJ is Stark...After seeing it twice now, my tune has changed about not wanting a Widow solo movie, ScarJo was great too! Her and Hawkeye in their own movie, Bourne/Salt like, would rule...
Kurne - 4/5/2014, 4:08 PM
I enjoyed Scarlett Johansson's presence in a Marvel movie. That means something.
Omarvls - 4/5/2014, 4:09 PM
@grif

When Cap plays chicken with the Helliship and takes it out using his shield

That was EPIC
Omarvls - 4/5/2014, 4:09 PM
@MrBlackJack

Once again you amaze

lol
batz11 - 4/5/2014, 4:09 PM
Exactly grif, the elevator scene was nice, just Cap and Fury talking about his gpa...well, the 'other' elevator scene was great too!
0megaDaGod - 4/5/2014, 4:10 PM


Movie was beautiful

Greatest CBM ever
grif - 4/5/2014, 4:10 PM
this movie gets men AND women wet
Omarvls - 4/5/2014, 4:11 PM
@grif

"this movie gets men AND women wet"

lol
RextheKing - 4/5/2014, 4:12 PM
@Omarvis Yes, I get to talk so much shit to my buddy now(who's name happens to be Omar), for say Cap was a useless Avenger... the Mutha [frick]er took out a Quinjet with his shield.
CaptainAmerica31 - 4/5/2014, 4:12 PM
Deserves it. Every penny
grif - 4/5/2014, 4:12 PM
i would trade the whole hellicarrier battle at the end for one more fight between steve and bucky.

using shields,guns knives,hand to hand,super strength and a cybernetic arm all in one fight. so damn awesome.
SuperCat - 4/5/2014, 4:12 PM
0megaDaGod - 4/5/2014, 4:13 PM
I was never fully sold on Evan's ability to portray the TRUE Captain America

This proved me incredibly wrong

And I doubt it'll hit a billion, but it's success is just beyond deserved. I'm actually looking forward to Cap 3 almost as much as Avengers AOU
JoJo1982 - 4/5/2014, 4:14 PM
The first film came out July 2011 need to fix that
Giznad - 4/5/2014, 4:16 PM
I loved the very first fight scene. That shit was like Mortal Kombat. I mean, I'm not comparing it to the first MK movie, but those fight scenes were beast.
