<< Continued from Summer Forecast: #1 - 1213. The Fault in our Stars (June 6): As usual, there's not a ton of compelling content for women this Summer. One exception to that is The Fault in Our Stars, which is a romantic drama based off the popular John Green novel. The trailer has over 15 million views on YouTube*in line with most would-be blockbusters*and star Shailene Woodley is coming off a break-out role in Divergent. Look for this to be a solid hit as well. (Domestic: $120 million, Foreign: $55 million)14. Deliver Us From Evil (July 2): Horror movies can provide a nice alternative to all of the big-budget spectacle, R-rated humor, and animated fare that dominates multiplexes during the Summer months. Last year's The Conjuring was a surprise hit with $137.4 million; if anything is going to match that this year, its Deliver Us from Evil. The strong trailer features a lengthy, very frightening »

Though Brick Mansions might not be on everyone’s radar, it definitely should be. Starring the late Paul Walker, RZA and David Belle, the film is a remake of French actioner District 13 and like the original, it looks to promise high-flying action that’s full of jaw-dropping parkour stunts.
I’m a huge fan of both District 13 and its sequel, District B13: Ultimatum, so I’m incredibly excited to see what they’ve done with the American remake. To celebrate its upcoming release (this Friday, April 25th), we’re giving away a prize pack to one lucky reader. Included is some cool branded content (pictured below), as well as the following Blu-Rays:

Attendees at next month’s Cannes Film Festival will hear plenty of French being spoken — except, that is, by the characters onscreen. Of the French films recently announced as part of this year’s official selection, two (Olivier Dahan’s opening-nighter “Grace of Monaco” and Olivier Assayas’ “Clouds of Sils Maria”) are predominately English-language features with largely American and British casts, while “The Search,” from “The Artist” helmer Michel Hazanavicius, reportedly features a mix of English, French, Chechnyan and Russian. Meanwhile, in the festival’s Un Certain Regard sidebar, “Lady Chatterley” director Pascale Ferran’s “Bird People” is another hybrid English/French affair, with a cast that includes Josh Charles, Radha Mitchell and Clark Johnson.
On the one hand, this may seem fated in a year when reliable linguistic provocateur Jean-Luc Godard will be present in the Cannes competition with a film titled “Goodbye to Language.” On the other, this »

With a $95 million debut, Captain America: The Winter Soldier stole the April opening record from 2011′s Fast Five ($86.2 million). Captain America: The Winter Soldier had the biggest post Avengers bump yet, up 46% from Captain America: The First Avenger, which is way higher than both Iron Man 3 (36% up from Iron Man […]
Read Box Office: Captain America Sets April Opening Record on Filmonic.
Box Office When Warner Bros. moved the release of the as-yet-untitled Man of Steel sequel to May 6, 2016, the same date that Marvel had staked out for Captain America 3, many thought that Marvel President Kevin Feige was being a little too optimistic when he laughed off the idea of moving Cap's third outing to another date. Now, we know that Feige simply had confidence that his Super Soldier could stand up to Superman and friends as Captain America: The Winter Soldier is breaking records left and right. Before the movie even opened, The Winter Soldier broke the advance ticket sales record for the month of April. When it finally debuted this weekend, it thoroughly trounced the competition, taking in $95 million to set a new record for the month of April, besting previous record holder Fast Five's $86.2 million opening. The Winter Soldier opened 46% higher than the original movie, no doubt »

Warning: The following article contains spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Read on at your own risk. Captain America: The Winter Soldier had a fantastic weekend, opening with an absolutely astounding $96 million at the domestic box office. This means the superhero sequel has broken the record for biggest April opening ever (Sorry, Fast Five), and it's looking like the word of mouth campaign is spreading fast. Sure, critics love Cap 2, but fans are making an unexpected aspect of the movie go viral, which might spur a second major wave of moviegoers to the theaters this week. We warned you once, but seriously, Major Spoilers ahead. The most shocking revelation in Captain America: The Winter Soldier is not the identity of the titular Winter Soldier, but the discovery that S.H.I.E.L.D. is insanely compromised. In fact, the Nick Fury-fronted defense and espionage organization has been thoroughly »
It's still an April opening weekend record, but Captain America: The Winter Soldier came in with $95 million for the three-day weekend, $1.6 million under estimates, which is understandable considering that's a lot of pennies to count. Captain America 2 edged out 2011's Fast Five for that April record, but come 2015 it will be time for Fast & Furious 7 to attempt to give the Fast franchise its April record back on the weekend of April 10. In second was Noah and Paramount was spot-on with the $17 million estimate, though I'm sure they were hoping they had sold the film short as a 61% drop from its opening weekend is not what the doctor ordered. Worldwide the $125 million-budgeted film is up to $178.5 million, though I'm not sure if all territories have reported numbers. As a matter of fact, estimates were really close this weekend as Divergent came in only $100,000 below the estimated $13 million and God's Not Dead holds strong with $7.7 million, »

It's no secret that Disney/Marvel were already planning a third Captain America movie prior to the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Even Marvel Studios prez Kevin Feige admitted to us that both Cap 3 and Thor 3 were "in the very early stages of development; getting scripts going, getting stories going." So it's really no surprise that Disney has decided to make things all official and stuff with Captain America 3 following the terrific opening weekend of The Winter Soldier ($92 million, which shattered the previous April record held by Fast Five). What is a surprise, though, is that Feige and co. decided to open Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016, officially confirming rumors that the next Cap adventure will arrive in theaters on the same...

A few weeks ago rumor had it that Marvel was gonna release “Captain America 3″ on May 6 2016, which is pretty much the first of its Phase Three films.
Marvel has now confirmed the release date by saying the following:
Following the record-breaking premiere of Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” this past weekend, the First Avenger will jump into his next big screen solo adventure in just a little more than two years on May 6, 2016!
Before the untitled “Captain America 3″ hits theaters, though, fans can next see Cap when he joins the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes once more in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015!
So for Now it would seem that “Captain America 3″ will go up against Warner Bros. Pictures “Man of Steel” sequel “Batman vs. Superman,” which orginally was slated to be released on July 17, 2015 but since moved it to May 6, 2016.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier has broken records in the Us and Canada over the weekend. It is the highest-opening April movie ever, shunting previous holder Fast Five out of the way. ‘The Winter Soldier’ grossed a whopping $96.2 million over the three days to Sunday, compared to the fifth film in the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise, which bagged $86.2 million. The total worldwide box-office now stands at over $303 million, which is on its way to be the Captain America’s first outing of $370 million.
It’s a huge hit for Disney and Marvel and sets up the less known Guardians Of The Galaxy in August, the studio’s next fare.
Elsewhere in the top ten, Noah hung on to the number two spot, it’s cumulative gross now over the $70 million mark. Divergent also continues to take in the cash at the number three spot with a total of $114 million in the bank, »

After this past weekend, the "A" on Captain America's helmet might as well stand for "April." "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" set a new opening-weekend record for the month of April with an estimated $96.2 million. Not only was that enough to knock 2011's "Fast Five" from April's pole position, but it was a 48 percent improvement over the launch of "Captain America: The First Avenger" the same year. The Captain America sequel, which features ...

More Us box office analysis here

Marvel Studios' Captain America: The Winter Soldier tore up the record books, thanks to an estimated $96.2m launch that has played its part in powering Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and friends to $303.3m at the worldwide box office in 10 days.

When one of the Avengers has a movie release, it's a smart idea not to try and put out anything else that same weekend. Hollywood heeded that advice and Captain America: The Winter Soldier had the limelight all to itself, breaking a monthly record and scoring an easy number one. Well up from the debut of its predecessor, Captain America: The First Avenger, which opened at $65 million in 2011, Winter Soldier bowed in with $96 million. That's not the best ever opening for an Avenger flick (all three Iron Man movies have been higher), but it is the highest ever April opening, topping the $86 million Fast Five banked back in 2011. The question now is how well Winter Soldier will hold up over the long haul. It's on track to pass the $176 million domestic total for the first Captain America flick, but it has a long way to go to catch up the »
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" continued Marvel's streak of successful films by grossing $96 million at the domestic box office this weekend, setting the record for the highest April opening of all time, beating the previous record-holder "Fast Five" ($86.2 million). In only 10 days, the sequel earned an additional $207.1 million overseas, which is more than the entire international gross of "Captain America: The First Avenger" ($193.9 million). "The Winter Soldier" now earned $303 million worldwide and quickly approaching the total worldwide gross of "The First Avenger" ($370.6 million). "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" cost $170 million to make, which means it's already a massive hit. The film also has a very impressive 89% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. The third installment has already been announced and is set to hit theaters on May 6th, 2016. »
Just another day at the box office as Marvel took the top spot and set a record in the process.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (read our review) is the number 1 film this weekend with $96 million. As we already mentioned, that’s the biggest April opening ever, ahead of Fast Five‘s $86 million back in 2011.
The Winter Soldier also continues to add to its worldwide total, which is now up to a massive $303 million after two weeks abroad. Next up for the international markets are Brazil and Japan – two pretty lucrative territories.
While many predicted the Marvel train would keep rolling post-Avengers, these Phase 2 films are still far and away exceeding ...

It's no surprise that Captain America: The Winter Soldier had a very successful opening weekend, bringing in $96.2 million domestically. In fact, it was such a great opening that it knocked "all previous daily and opening weekend April records previously held by Fast Five in 2011" away, according to Deadline. Marvel Comics' heroics also brought in another $178 million abroad, putting the movie's current cumulative haul at $303.3 million.Last weekend's winner, Noah, dropped to second place, adding $17 million to its pot for a two-week total of $72 million. Naturally, the number one movie before that, Divergent, fell to number three. The Ya adaption has raked in $114 million in three weeks, only $13 million of which came from this weekend. God’s Not Dead continues to surprise as it hangs on to its spot in the top five. This time, the Christian-friendly flick made $7.8 million for a three-week total »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier has debuted in the number one spot at the Us box office.
It surpasses the previous April record set by Fast Five, which collected $86.2 million in ticket sales in April 2011.
Dystopian thriller Divergent slipped to number three and took $13m in ticket sales, bringing its total in the Us and Canada to $114 million since its release on March 21.
Eschewing a typical Summer release, Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened to a very strong $95 million this weekend. That's a new record for the month of April ahead of Fast Five's $86.2 million.The Winter Soldier is also doing strong business overseas, where it has already topped the first movie's $194 million total.Riding a wave of goodwill from 2012's The Avengers, The Winter Soldier's domestic debut is a 46 percent improvement over the first Captain America's opening. That's the biggest "Avengers bump" yet: Iron Man 3 was up 36 percent, while Thor: The Dark World improved 30 percent. Speaking of The Dark World: Captain America's debut is noticeably higher than that movie's $85.7 million.Still, Captain America: The Winter Soldier couldn't quite match the original Iron Man, which opened to $98.6 million back in 2008 (before most moviegoers were even familiar with The Avengers). It's abundantly clear that, as one of the highest-grossing movies ever, »
