BOX OFFICE: International Numbers For CAPTAIN AMERICA: TWS's Opening Weekend

The Captain America sequel doesn't open in the US until next week, but it's already made a very impressive start overseas..just falling short of a whopping $80M haul. Of course at this stage it'd really only be news if a Marvel movie didn't clean up at the box office!

To absolutely nobody's surprise, Marvel look to have another massive hit on their hands. The excellent Captain America: The Winter Soldier has scored a very impressive $75M internationally over its opening weekend. The sequel is expected to earn upwards of $80M when it opens in North America on April 4, but it'll have to make $85M to match Marvel's last BO beast, Thor: The Dark World.

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. 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.

Read that Captain America doing really well in Asia.

But countries like Russia and other Soviet nations, not so much. They were hoping Winter Soldier would win.

It may not make a billion, but it'll still do amazing.
venom0706 - 3/30/2014, 9:13 AM
Such a brilliant film! Well deserved. Can't wait to watch it for a 3rd time.

charlie2094 - 3/30/2014, 9:15 AM
Awesome stuff! Still not been able to see it, but can't wait!

Reckon this has the potential to outdo Thor, I mean, it's getting much better reviews, stronger release date, Falcon could be a big draw, has Widow and Fury - big Avengers follow up etc

Reckon it'll manage $85 million on opening, reckon it'll finish around the $650 mark. Going to be very close between this and Thor, but think Cap might have the edge, depends how much stronger his name is overseas.
WorstUserNameEver - 3/30/2014, 9:16 AM
It deserves a big haul... $800,000,000 - $1,000,000,000.
Starfox - 3/30/2014, 9:17 AM

One more week.

Seeing it on Thursday. Extremely excited.

In my excitement, however, I listened to the score . . . . and damn, that was disappointing.

Henry Jackman really did not know what he was doing. I listened to every song on the OST and the whole time I was wondering where the real music was. It's all so understated and generic and nothing happens at all. I really hope it sounds better in the film. What kills it especially for me is that the music that was on the main website and in the trailers is infinitely superior to what is apparently in the film.

Oh well, still can't wait to see the movie, but compared to Alan Silvestri and Brian Tyler's scores, Henry Jackman disappointed big time, especially given his usual pedigree.

94% and 7.6 Average Rating??... what a huge difference.
santoanderson - 3/30/2014, 9:29 AM
I get that MARVEL & Disney are hungry for international box office numbers, but dammit, this is a movie about a guy with a freakin' American flag on his chest, and for that reason alone it should open in America first or at least simultaneously with the UK, Europe & South America.
ProfessorX - 3/30/2014, 9:29 AM
@ClarkStark: 50 fresh, 3 rotten is fantastic. Hopefully the ratio holds and it ends with 250 fresh, 15 rotten.
Marvel1997 - 3/30/2014, 9:30 AM
Guys we don't have to turn this into a Marvel vs DC thread. While I will say I do hope WB Get their act together and start Cinematic Universe, I belive they have announcements on the way, prob at comic con.

'Murica!

Brainiac13 - 3/30/2014, 9:32 AM
Fantastic news......


Ranger14 - 3/30/2014, 9:33 AM
It won't make a billion dollars, but it will be a box office success, critically acclaimed and rated high with the general audience, which will put in the top CBMs of all-time category.
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 3/30/2014, 9:35 AM
I smell FREEDOM.
BIGBMH - 3/30/2014, 9:36 AM
It's pretty impressive and says a lot both about the success of The Avengers and how good the movie looks. I don't expect it to beat Thor TDW's opening numbers since the first Thor was a bigger hit than Cap TFA, giving that franchise a stronger reputation. However, if it's even nearly as good as it looks to be, it could very likely win out in the long run and set up for Cap 3 to open even more strongly.
MrCBM56 - 3/30/2014, 9:36 AM
Haven't even seen the movie yet but it deserves it.
HugoStrange87 - 3/30/2014, 9:36 AM
I must admit at first I thought "I'll see it when I'm on vacation" to "I have to see this" with the buzz it's getting. This and TASM2 are my two most anticipated movies this year.
ezio619 - 3/30/2014, 9:37 AM
DrDoom-i listened to some it and i liked it,the inter soldier theme i think fits the character,its dark, cold , mechanical, harsh,i really liked it ,but u have to undertsand the genre of the film, its suppose to a political thriller and music for political thrillers, atleast the ones i have seen, work much better within the context of the film then on their own
