'Captain America' sequel breaks record

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Apr 6, 2014

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" smashed box office records with $96.2 million in weekend sales. This "Captain America" sequel was the best April movie debut in history.

"Its opening is all the more impressive when you consider that, while it falls beneath 'The Avengers' and 'Iron Man 3 and 2,' it outranks many of the stand-alone Marvel character debuts, including both 'Thor' films and the original 'Captain America,' which it outgrossed by 48 percent," reports Entertainment Weekly. "It nabbed an additional $110 million from audiences overseas."

Actor Chris Evans plays the "Super Soldier." The original Marvel blockbuster debuted in 2011.
