The sequel to 2011's 'Captain America: The First Avenger,' and the ninth instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe earned an impressive $41.4 million in its second weekend of release, which now brings the film's domestic earnings to a total of $159 million.

'Winter Soldier' is also proving to be a huge success overseas and has raked in $317.7 million in ticket sales already.

The plot occurs two years after the events in New York City, and although 'Steve Rogers' is still struggling to adjust to the modern world, he is still heavily involved with 'S.H.I.E.L.D', even if he isn't convinced with certain aspects of their ethics.

Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson also returns to star as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow 

However, after a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. is assassinated, Rogers and the rest of the organisation band together to try and figure out who is behind the attack, but as the All-American hero fights off a tirade of assassins, an unexpected adversary, who can match the Captain's inhuman strength and speed, emerges.

Robert Redford
Robert Redford makes his Marvel film debut as a senior member of S.H.I.E.L.D

Accompanying 'Captain America' (Chris Evans) is the returning Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford), 'Falcon' (Anthony Mackie) and 'The Winter Soldier', played by Sebastian Stan.
