    Super Mojo of Captain America Kicks the Box Office Keester of Harry Potter!

    Box Office Results: "Captain America" Defeats "Harry Potter" | Markets | Minyanville.com

    Buh bye, Harry! The First Avenger has made you and Voldemort look like a couple of Muggles. Beyond that, it appears as though the famed patriot is initiating the possible defeat of the Wizarding franchise by the avenging Marvel Universe - with respect to films, theme park attractions and merchandise.

    Captain America had the best debut of the summer. As of July 25th, the film had grossed $274.2 million (during a period of only 10 days). It has been projected that The First Avenger could go epic as the top performing movie of the year. Will it receive much critical acclaim? Probably not, as critics usually loath successful family films have relavance in that they uplift the American spirit during lean times.

    Can't wait to see Chris Evans reprise the patriot hero in the upcoing Avengers and in the currently planned Captain America sequel.

    Captain America has made less than $87 million here in America and less than $90 million worldwide.

    It is Harry Potter that has made over $290 million domestically and more than $900 million worldwide.

    The $87 million figure for Captain America relates to the debut alone: "According to estimates., Captain America: The First Avenger collected $65.8 million, just enough to have the largest debut of the four superhero movies that opened this summer."

    Although the sentences in the article are a bit staggered, the article's title ("Captain America" Defeats "Harry Potter") obviously relates to the following supporting sentence: "The film has collected an awesome $272.2 million after only 10 days and should and should wind up the highest grossing film of the summer (and probably the year)."

    Although all of the Potter films put together amount to a larger sum of money than Captain America, CA's profits are higher that the current Potter flick - Deathly Hollows 2.

    Unfortunately, Ride Warrior, you are wrong. According to Box Office Mojo as of Wednesday Captain America has made $86 Million in the US. Harry Potter has made over $291 million in the US.

    Got to think outside of the box and remember that the best box office offence is a good box office defense. That's the ticket!

    The Captain beat Mr. Wizard's latest film - but not the profit from the entire series put together. I look forward to seeing Cowboys Vs Aliens. Doubt that it will out-gross our patriot hero with the flashy shield.

    Talk about a prompt response, Melonballer! I'm honored over the interest being shown here. It is indeed a fun topic. I maintain that Minyanville's report of a CA box office take of $272.2 million during it's first 10 days is accurate. It was also announced in television news reports. the super patriot is flying higher than the magic corndog on a broomstick.

    "After a massive opening weekend, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II from Warner Bros. (TWX) experienced a massive sophomore weekend drop-off, which was to be expected after such a large opening. The film has collected an awesome $274.2 million after only 10 days and should wind up the highest grossing film of the summer (and probably the year)"

    ^^ It is talking about Harry Potter. Captain America has only been out for 7 days and has made less than $87m. It's 10th day will be this coming Sunday.

    The title of the article refers to Captain America beating Harry Potter for weekend sales of July 22-24 in which Captain America made $65 million and Harry Potter made $47 million. As of last Sunday, Deathly Hallows part II had been open for 10 days and had made $274 million overall.

    You can go to boxofficemojo.com and read numbers if you like.

    I think the reason you are getting such a response is that no one can understand why you do not get this. Captain America has not made 272.2 million during its first 10 days. The film has not even been out 10 days yet. It was released 7 days ago.

    Also check out the date of the article. It is July 25th. At that point Captain America had only been out 4 days. On the other hand Harry Potter was released on July 15th. Which was 10 days before July 25th. Unfortunately all the evidence is pointing to you having misread the article.

    After a massive opening weekend, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II from Warner Bros. (TWX) experienced a massive sophomore weekend drop-off, which was to be expected after such a large opening. The film [Harry Potter] has collected an awesome $274.2 million after only 10 days and should wind up the highest grossing film of the summer (and probably the year).
    According to estimates, Captain America: The First Avenger collected $65.8 million, just enough to have the largest debut of the four superhero movies that opened this summer.

    Both quotes from the same article.. where's the confusion??

    While CA may have beat HP in box office LAST weekend, Harry Potter knocked the KEESTER off opening weekend numbers.

    Well, there it is! Captain Chris has a physique that is far more incredible than the Hulk, and steelier than Iron Man. Is it any wonder he is soring high with the movie goers?!
