On opening-weekend in America, the critically acclaimed Captain America sequel has shattered April box office records with $96.2 million (£60.1 million).

Captain America: The Winter Soldier has become the largest April debut on record, since his storming U.S. movie theatres on Friday, April 4th.

Other successful debuts are biblical epic Noah which hit the top spot on March 30th, which now dropped to a very distant second position with $17 million (£10.6 million), and Divergent is now third with ‘only’ $13 million (£8.1 million) just for this weekend.

Wes Anderson’s comedy The Grand Budapest Hotel and a religious movie God’s Not Dead are now sharing the modest fifth position.

Globally, Captain America: Winter Soldier has earned over $303 million (£183 million) to this point.

Captain America is a fictional character, a superhero who appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics in America. The character first appeared in Captain America Comics No.1 (March 1941) from Marvel Comics’ 1940s predecessor, Timely, and was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.

As of 2007, an estimated 210 million copies of “Captain America” comic books have been sold in 75 countries.

For nearly all of the character’s publication history, Captain America has been the alter of Steve Rogers, a young man who was enhanced to the peak of human perfection by an experimental serum, in order to aid the United States government’s efforts in World War II.
