Captain America Bashing His Enemies at the Box Office

Cast, creators and crew of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier” are celebrating as they crush the competition in the films opening weekend.

The Marvel movie raked in a total of $96.2 million this past weekend.

The Winter Soldier also expected to rake in a whopping $303.3 million from foreign markets, with a large percentage arriving from China.

The film, while highly entertaining and providing an array of spectacular visual effects, also covered a number of more serious topics such as politics, trust and betrayal and all the cast, apparently, have done a brilliant job.

Chris Evans, the lead actor of the film, plays a 1940s soldier that was cryogenically frozen and resurrected. Captain America is shown as a leader and a fighter, but comic relief is provided as he struggles to find his way through the modern day and it’s nuances.

The 5-star cast also included Scarlett Johansson, playing the Black Widow, as seen in her performance in The Avengers.

While she has always been portrayed as a physically and emotionally strong woman, this film allowed you to see the character in more vulnerable circumstances, which allowed the audience to relate to the character in a more intimate way.

Samuel L. Jackson, best known for Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, returned as Nick Fury, the director of a top secret organization known as S.H.E.I.L.D. Jackson’s performance solidified the film’s commercial success with a strong command of his character.

In contrast, last week’s number one spot Noah, only made $17 million on it’s opening weekend. However, the numbers picked up towards the second week as the movie earned a total of $72.3 million.

Also on the list are two children’s films, Mr. Peabody and Sherman and Muppets Most wanted, earning $6.3 million and $5.3 million consecutively. They take the 6th and 7th spots on this week’s list.
