The US Box Office Results Wrap Up
with Sean Lynch
Marvel Studios can not be stopped, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier opening to massive numbers of $95M on debut. It easily beat out the $65.1M opening of its 2011 predecessor and opened higher than this years sequel Thor: The Dark World (which opened to $85M).
The big question will be will Guardians of the Galaxy suffer from these big box office increases. Even with good will from these other Marvel films, it's likely that Guardians may be lucky to open to only around $50M which (by comparison) will be seen as Marvel's first flop. Only time will tell.
Meanwhile, Arnold Schwarzenegger's latest flop Sabotage dropped a whopping 62% in its second week and has now only made $8.9M. Expect future films of his that aren't Terminator related opening on DVD and Streaming services.
