Captain America Sequel Tracking An $80 Million Opening! Expected To Grow As Big As Chris Evans' Biceps!
Box office experts are tracking it to surpass $80 million in its opening weekend alone!
The sequel is expected to benefit from what's called the "halo effect" of mega-hit The Avengers. Cap's teammates already saw big jumps in their opening weekend takes.
The first Thor took in $65.7 mil, but after The Avengers, the thunder god made it rain with $85.7 million! Likewise, Tony Stark got even richer, going from $128.1 million for Iron Man 2 to $174.1 million in Iron Man 3.
That's over a 30% increase in both franchises! Captain America: The First Avenger also opened to about $65 mil, so $80 mil is looking like an easy hurdle!
We guess green is the operative word!
