Captain America: The Winter Soldier made $96 Million in its opening weekend. If you throw in the overseas box office, Captain America 2 has already surpassed its own budget at $194 million. The mighty Marvel Empire is doing just fine. So how does old Cap rank against his original film, Thor and Tony Stark’s sequel? Ray Subers of Box Office Mojo had this to report: 


“Riding a wave of goodwill from 2012's The Avengers,The Winter Soldier's domestic debut is a 48 percent improvement over the first Captain America's opening. That's the biggest "Avengers bump" yet: Iron Man 3 was up 36 percent, while Thor: The Dark World improved 30 percent. Speaking of The Dark World: Captain America's debut is noticeably higher than that movie's $85.7 million.


Still, Captain America: The Winter Soldier couldn't quite match the original Iron Man, which opened to $98.6 million back in 2008 (before most moviegoers were even familiar with The Avengers)”.


I think we can lock down Captain America: The Winter Solider for next weekend’s big winner.
