“Captain America” sets record during big opening weekend

See also

To no surprise the new Marvel movie, Captain America: Winter Soldier, grabs the top spot over the weekend. The movie was able to grab an estimated $96 million in just the first weekend. This opening not only set the record for the highest opening weekend in April and is on pace to have the highest grossing film in April with no competition really until The Amazing Spider-man 2 comes out in May.

Two other movies were able to at least hit double digits over the weekend. Noah is still going strong with an estimated $17 million, but the movie is still very short from it’s $125 budget only bringing in an estimated $72 million so far. Divergent was able to bring in an estimated $13 million. The movie has surpassed the $100-million mark and beat out it’s $85 million budget, despite the 39% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Rounding out the top five is God’s Not Dead with an estimated $7.7 million and The Grand Budapest Hotel with an estimated $6.3 million.
