Captain America: The Winter Soldier has obliterated its competition, breaking April domestic daily records with over £20 million.
The sequel is set to also break the weekend record for the highest-grossing April Stateside, opening with £60 million.
The Winter Soldier is also on track to top the original Captain America, which launched to £40 million three years ago. The First Avenger ultimately earned over £200 million worldwide.
At this rate, Winter Soldier could become the most successful Marvel film after the Iron Man and The Avengers franchises. So far, every Marvel sequel has skyrocketed past its predecessor.
