But even if it went in place of Thor it would've had to deal with Fast Five, which Thor also lost business to. So I think in the end it would've done a little better than Thor's $181 million maybe even $200 million but not much more.

Hey, 20 mil is a sizable increase in my book.

Cap wouldn't have been able to make early May as a release date though. They were still filming scenes for Cap as last as March. Thor started shooting much earlier than Cap as well.

I recall last year it sort of seemed like they were pushing things really tight since it seemed to take forever to find the Steve Rogers/Captain America actor.

I think, with audiences being well familiar now with the character that Evans portrayed on screen, along with the popularity being only boosted through "The Avengers", Better marketing, and a release date where it's not competing with any MAJOR film (ala HP, Cowboys and Aliens, etc), then I think the sequel will earn A LOT, course this is all provided that the sequel is written with the same, if not better quality than the first film.

Nope it was this weeks. The money it's making during the week has been in the thousands not millions. BOM has an estimated $184,600,000.

But it's really (as of today) $184,526,030

Well BOM has it at 184.6 million overseas now.

It should pass over $175 million domestically in a couple weekends.

What would be really awesome if it can make another $35 million overseas. I want to see this make $400 million worldwide and surpass Tron: Legacy.

Now about within spitting distance of $175 million. It will for sure get there before it leaves theatres and hits DVD.

I'm expecting it will get about $190-200 million to finish overseas.

we look to be heading for a $370 M total gross. A solid mid-tier blockbuster, and a great foundation for a new franchise.

I'm happy Cap broke 300 mil. I mean I really thought he wasn't going to do too well.

Went and saw this again last night on a whim. FULL FREAKIN HOUSE. It was equally as packed as it was on opening night. Couldn't believe it. Kids of all ages, teens, young adults, seniors, you name it. Great energy too. Reactions to all the moments in the movie were great. Buncha girls screamed when Steve threw himself on the grenade.

Even seeing this a second time, it was like seeing this for the first. Tugged at the heartstrings maybe even more than it did the first time. Not only was this my favorite movie of the summer, I'd have to say it was the best. Fun, emotional, universal appeal. Just great.

Now over $175 million domestically. It might tiptoe to $176 million before it leaves theatres. Still making $400,000 over the weekend. Not completely out there that it could get $176 million before the DVD hits.

Cap will end at $176 million in the US it looks like since it's about in spitting distance of it. Less than $200K to go.

Cap'll for sure cross to $176M this weekend and that's the number it'll stay at. So just within 5M of Thor, domestically and I could easily chalk that up to Thor's better release date. So domestically they're basically even for all intents and purposes.

Cap also had higher 2D attendance than Thor did. So, Cap may have had higher tickets sales than Thor domestically.

Not trying to make this an Avenger measuring contest. Just measuring up how well Cap did in overall BO this year.

Cap has crossed to $176M now. It's at $365,671,000 WW. Just opened in Japan yesterday and I'd love it if Cap could pull another $9M from Japan(which would give it enough juice to beat both BB & XMO:W's WW totals). Thor made $5.7M in Japan and XM:FC made about $7.8M so that may be a tall order for Cap. But who knows, it could happen. Domestic is pretty much done except for a few hundred thousand more in the next week or so before it gets pulled from theaters altogether with the Oct. 25th DVD release upcoming. I sure hope Japan can at least get Cap across the $370M WW line(Thor numbers should be enough to do that).

I see it probably topping out at about $370 million worldwide. It did get some extra juice from the dollar theaters actually. I think had the movie had a better marketing push and release date it would've done a lot better.

Whatever it has left to be earned in it's last week or two in North American theaters is probably enough to push it to $366M based on where it is right now($300K or so to go) which means Japan would only have to kick in $4M to get to $370M. I've love it if Japan ended up kicking in $7M or more so it could pass Wolverine's WW total.
