BOX OFFICE: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Already Closes In On $100 Million In China

Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been a huge hit in China, and the Marvel Studios sequel is already closing in on $100 million in the now vital box office territory. However, Wally Pfister's Transcendence has also failed to make an impact there, just as it did in North America this weekend...

The past few years have seen China become a vital market for Hollywood blockbusters, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier is no exception as it is already closing in on the $100 million mark after just 17 days of release. The exact number is $98.27 million according to The Hollywood Reporter, and part of why its worldwide cume is just days away from passing $600 million. The Marvel Studios sequel earned $18 million in China this past weekend, beating Rio 2's $12.05 million and Johnny Depp's Transcendence opened with $10.65 million in third place, just $1 million shy of its North America debut. That may not be a good sign of things to come for the movie, as Warner Bros. were surely hoping that it would perform better overseas than it did at home.

Wow. When this is all said and done this film would have grossed 700 million worldwide. Great news for Cap. It deserves all the money it makes.

just checked to see how it stacks up to other films in china and it is currently the 18th highest grossing film in china (iron man 3 is 8th). and of course it's still growing

Awesome stuff, completely deserves it's success, they made a brilliant film. China is a huge market, good that it's doing well there!

Fantastic how strong it has performed, gone from under $400 for Cap 1, to now being guaranteed to finish around about the $700 million mark, huge increase. Didn't expect it to surpass Iron Man 2 or Thor 2, but guess it did have a lot going for it. Great to see Cap going so strong.

Think Guardians, being so different and a new property, will be the true indication of how strong Marvel is at the moment, really hard to guess how that does

@kinghulk
Wow, Cap is grossing more than Avengers in China. Who said Captain America can't sell overseas?!

thunderforce - 4/22/2014, 5:23 AM
Here's a question , we all know that the Avengers gave a boost to the single movies is it possible for really great single movies to give a boost to all of the other MCU movies ?
batz11 - 4/22/2014, 5:23 AM
Beautiful movie...weird to me China has over a billion people, not many end up going to the theater when you think about it, haha
LokiOfAsgard - 4/22/2014, 5:26 AM
^ We shall find out with Guardians of the Galaxy.

At this point, I think the answer is yes.
SuperCat - 4/22/2014, 5:27 AM

IminentEminence - 4/22/2014, 5:42 AM

Rad!! On ya Cap! It's surprisingly easy for the rest of the world to dissociate their distaste of America with the dude who wears a flag - old fashioned values of standing up for what's right really shines through.

FInally Saw it LAST NIGHT.



AMAZING. Definitely the best Marvel Movie next to AVENGERS. the fight scenes were pretty brutal


Only problem was ....



Spoilers........



spoilers....




That stupid plastic holo- mask thing Black Widow had and the senate hearing scene where black widow tells them..." you're not gonna arrest me...you need me." and then just walks out. Most poorly done scene in the movie.
