Another Marvel film released, another strong start in the box office. The franchise and run of successful movies is creeping close to double digits as Captain America: The Winter Soldier owned the box office in its opening weekend with a whopping $96M+ domestically (the next closest was under $20M). Rottentomatoes.com also rated the movie ‘Certified Fresh’ with an excellent 89% grade!
Here’s the incredible thing about the latest Marvel feat: in it’s opening week worldwide the film has eclipsed the $300M mark! As successful as the previous films and the first Captain America installment were, The Winter Soldier brought in a higher revenue total for the opening.
Next up for Marvel: Guardians of the Galaxy!
