‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Opens to Huge $75 Million Overseas  

Disney's Marvel superhero sequel opens at No. 1 in 30 of 32 markets in which it debuted

Disney's “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” roared out of the gate, taking in $75.2 million in its overseas box-office debut this weekend.

The action adventure dominated the international market, with current estimated openings at No. 1 in all but two of its 32 markets. It opens in the U.S. on Friday and is tracking for the year's biggest domestic debut, at more than $80 million-plus.

The biggest overseas markets were Korea with $10.9 million and the U.K. with $10.7 million. The U.K. figure is telling — the first “Captain America” did $14.7 million over the course of its entire run there. Other strong markets include Mexico ($8.7 million), France ($6.4 million), Italy ($3.9 million) and Germany ($3.8 million).

The superhero sequel is the third to open since “Marvel's The Avengers,” and “The Winter Soldier” clearly rode the momentum provided by the 2012 superhero blockbuster to its big debut.

I am really curious to see how much it will do in the US.

Too bad Chris wants to quit, he's becoming attractive for the box office it is a very good point for his career.

oh I hope he's a good director. It is all I ask. He's smart but a good director needs a special touch. I wish him the best!!!
