With a Friday bow of $37 million, Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” not only obliterated its competition, but April domestic daily records reportsVariety.

The sequel is set to also break the weekend record for the highest-grossing April Stateside opening with $95 to upwards of $100 million this weekend. This could put the superhero pic almost $14 million above the previous April record of $86.2 million set by Universal’s “Fast Five” in 2011. “Fast Five” also held the April day record of $34 million.

“Winter Soldier,” which earned a whopping $10.2 million from Thursday night shows, is also on track to top the original “Captain America,” which launched to $65 million three years ago. “The First Avenger” ultimately earned almost $371 million worldwide (about $177 million Stateside).

Saw it, loved it.  Will probably see it again.

Donie and I loved to go to the movies and she especially loved going to eat afterwards, I miss that.   These days when I get back from a good flick I drop the ticket stub on her table next to the box with the ashes, her picture, her japanese dolls.
