Captain America 2, Best/Worst
This past Friday, after opening worldwide a few weeks earlier and performing like gangbusters, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the ninth Marvel Studios movie to date, arrived in the U.S., and swiftly proceeded to be the biggest opening of 2014 to date, smashing April records with a hefty $96 million weekend. That's a big step up for the second adventure to topline Chris Evans' super-soldier Steve Rogers to date, no doubt helped by very positive reaction from fans and critics alike.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
This weekend, the only film opening in wide release stateside is "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." Why are the other studios staying away? Because Marvel's movie is going to be a monster, with tracking suggesting it's poised to open with over $90 million this weekend, smashing previous April records, and Marvel is doing all they can to put every single butt in the seats.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
He might not be a space Viking or a talking raccoon, but Captain America was almost as tricky a character to bring to the screen in the 21st century as some of his Marvel contemporaries — standing for sincerity and purity in an age of grittiness and irony, and wearing the stars-and-stripes in an age when international box-office is key. As such, the character's first appearance in 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger," is probably best described as a modest success, both critically (an enjoyably retro first half giving way to a flatter, more formless second), and commercially — at $370 million, it's the second lowest-grossing of the Marvel pictures so far.
