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.
