Captain America: The Winter Soldier is apparently very popular. The movie has set a record this month already, it had the biggest April domestic release ever! The movie debuted with $96.2 million.
“The Winter Soldier” made $9.6 million of its U.S. profits from 346 theaters showing the movie in an enhanced resolution format. It debuted internationally on 278 Imax screens, pulling in $6.5 million, $4 million of which came from China.
‘‘We looked at the possibility of creating separation from the other summer tentpoles,’’ said Dave Hollis, head of worldwide theatrical distribution for Disney. ‘‘There was an opportunity. We have the second Marvel film coming at the end of the summer in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ We wanted to start and end the summer and take advantage of this holiday. In the next month or so we’ll have the benefit of spring break.’
