Can anyone knock Captain America off the US box office top spot?
It seems there really is no defeating Captain America, as The Winter Solider has topped the US box office again for the third straight week, what's more the movie has now passed the $200million box office mark. Not fairing so well over the Easter holiday however was Johnny Depp, who is suffering another box office flop as Transcendence only managed to enter in 4th place.
Chris Evans reigns supreme as Captain America
This week, Captain America: The Winter Solider took on the star power of Johnny Depp whose new movie Transcendence opened to negative reviews. According to studio estimates, The Winter Solider took around $26 million at the box office, whilst Depp’s offering only managed $11 million, coming in on fourth place. Sadly for Depp, Transcendence marks his third box office flop in a row after The Lone Ranger and Dark Shadows.
The Marvel Studios movie eclipsed all competition at this weekend's box office after debuting No.1 and setting a new record for the month of April.
Marvel Studios' latest instalment, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', is proving to be hugely popular, not just among comic book fans, but all cinemagoers as it reigns No.1 at this week's North American box office, breaking the April earnings' record.
Chris Evans reprises his role as the 'Captain' in the sequel
The sequel to 2011's 'Captain America: The First Avenger,' and the ninth instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe earned an impressive $96.2 million, which beat the previous highest-grossing movie in the month of April (2011's 'Fast Five') by $10 million.
Could this be Marvel's best movie yet? Signs point to yes.
Captain America is about to score big in the US – so big in fact, that it might be vying for the title of 2014’s top grossing debut. According to people, who know a lot about movies and are much better at maths than this humble staff writer, the red, white and blue superhero, alongside Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and a new character – the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) – is poised to earn Marvel over $90 million or more in ticket sales through Sunday in the U.S. and Canada. This information, quoted via the LA Times, is based on pre-release audience surveys.
Check out the trailer for Winter Soldier below.
The Winter Soldier cost $170 million to make and is a sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger. The movie owes an even bigger part of its success to the fact that it is an unmissable part of Marvel’s juggernaut Avengers franchise. Given the fact that the franchise also includes runaway successes like Iron Man 3, Thor 2 and of course, The Avengers, Captain America’s profits are actually quite modest – comparatively.
This is the Marvel movie that divides the fans from the casual filmgoers, as the movies become more like a TV series in which the world is saved from disaster every week. While it's shot and acted to an unusually high standard, the script treats the characters like pawns to throw at each other rather than real human beings. So while it's hugely entertaining, there isn't a hint of actual tension or suspense.
Now settling into life in the 21st century, super-powered soldier Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and his cohort Natasha (Scarlett Johansson) are horrified when the mysterious, seemingly indestructible Winter Soldier launches an attack on Shield Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) on the streets of Washington DC. Suspected of being on the wrong side, Steve and Natasha set out to find out what's up, drafting in angry veteran Sam (Anthony Mackie) and his whizzy flying-wings accessory. Meanwhile, Shield boss Pierce (Robert Redford) is carrying on with launching a wildly heavy-handed security system for America.
Marvel show-runner Kevin Feige works hard to make these movies fit loosely into the overarching mythology while standing on their own. But this is the ninth time these superheroes have had to save the world since 2008's Iron Man, and it's getting a bit tired. This chapter introduces a perviously unseen darkness in the evil agency Hydra, but the real innovation here is the use of gritty Bourne-style direction for the lucid action sequences.
