Captain America Sequel Tracking An $80 Million Opening! Expected To Grow As Big As Chris Evans' Biceps!

captain america the winter soldier box office

How big is Captain America: The Winter Soldier going to get? Well, if Chris Evans' muscles are anything to go by, much bigger than the last one!

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!

And repeat business might be good too! Word is that both Disney and Marvel are so happy with the film's quality, they've already greenlit number three!

We guess green is the operative word!

Ricky Gervais Is Worth How Much???

Filed under: Ricky Gervais

Mind-boggling!

So, yesterday, sources reported that Ricky Gervais was worth $80 million. We were skeptical of this "fact" at first, having forgotten that he's got his hands in not one, but both Office franchises. Still, we weren't completely sold on the number and wanted confirmation from Ricky before we let our jaw drop in undeniable awe and jealousy.

We've just been to Ricky's blog…where he confirmed he's worth the whole bundle!

Ricky shared with the world that the figures are indeed correct, but that he's been trying to hide this fact from those who might come after him with an open palm, like his family! He explained:

"They are of course spot on. I know it sounds a lot, but remember, I donate a lot of this to good causes. (The Inland Revenue mainly.)…I will have to get my family a million scratch cards each for Christmas. I have decided to use the rest of the money to take over Libya."

Hey, if you throw some of it at the HFPA, they'll probably let you host the Golden Globes again.

On second thought, never mind. We don't want to open that can of worms again!!!
