Captain America: The Winter Soldier will have no problem winning the domestic box office in its opening weekend. Dom Hemingway starring Jude Law and Richard E. Grant also makes its debut.

Recapping Last Weekend

 

Noah, the film loosely based on the bible story brought in $44 million with mixed reviews from audiences. Divergent took the second spot with $25.6 million. In its second week, that film has already brought in $95 million, $10 million more than its budget. Muppets Most Wanted took the third spot with $11.3 million in its second weekend. Mr. Peabody & Sherman took the fourth spot with just over $9 million. Its ticket sales dropped 23.3% from the previous weekend while playing in 308 fewer theaters.

The Christian film God’s Not Dead continued its strong run with just under $9 million; good enough to round out the top five. The film starring Kevin Sorbo and Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty, moved into 398 more theaters, but dropped 4.5% in revenue. Sabotage had a dismal opening weekend with an estimated $5.3 million. Noah brought in more, $6.2 million, on IMAX screens alone.

Opening This Weekend

 

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Chris Evans is back in this sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, which made $176 million domestically and almost $194 million overseas. The newest film opened last week overseas and brought in a healthy $75 million. It was strongest in South Korea, where it opened to almost $11 million, and the United Kingdom, where is brought in just over $10 million.

Aside from Evans, Samuel L. Jackson returns as Nick Fury and  Scarlett Johansson plays Black Widow. Emily VanCamp, star of Revenge, plays Agent 13, who is tasked with watching over Captain America by Fury. Stan Lee, the co-creator of almost ever Marvel main character, again makes a cameo, this time as a Smithsonian security guard. 

Captain America 2 is getting strong early reviews and predictions have it earning $80 million or more in its opening weekend. Here’s a primer from MTV to get you ready to see this one.


 

Dom Hemingway

This violent British comedy stars Jude Law as a safecracker who gets released from prison after 12 years.


 

Catch It Before It’s Gone

 

The “land of misft movies” adds Gravity, The Wind Rises, 12 Years A Slave, The Players and The Other Side of the Tracks.   Even though Gravity is out on dvd now, Keller 8 Cinemas is giving you one of your last opportunities to see it on the big screen.

The Wind Rises is about Jiro Horikoshi, who designed Japanese fighter planes during World War II.


 

Make It A Redbox Night

 

 12 Years A Slavmakes its way to Redbox this week as does Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Captain America: The First Avenger also makes a return to the red box for those wanting to brush up before seeing the new one.
