As reported last week, the animated Fox sequel Rio 2 was set to dominate its opening weekend in the United States and take the number 1 spot from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. However, recent estimates suggest that the Marvel/Disney sequel has brought in $41.4 million domestically, making it (still) the #1 movie in America. With this weekend's earnings from overseas, Cap has accumulated a total $476.7m worldwide, making it the highest-grossing movie of 2014 (so far)!

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka 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. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy — the Winter Soldier. Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp and Maximiliano Hernández with Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is directed by the team of Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing the film. Executive producers on the project include Alan Fine, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee. The creative production team on the film includes director of photography Trent Opaloch, production designer Peter Wenham, editors Jeffrey Ford, A.C.E. and Mary Jo Markey, A.C.E. and three time Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is set for release on April 4, 2014.

The public has spoken. It's great to see a CBM that doesn't get Cleveland steamrolled by an animated movie on its 2nd domestic weekend. Much props

@Themexican

It didn't really matter to me. All you need a movie to do is to earn enough for a sequel, and that was already set.
TheAbaryMan369 - 4/13/2014, 8:30 AM
[frick] you Rio 2. You are no match for Captain America.
