'Captain America' sets April record with $96.2M

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” has set a record as the biggest domestic April release ever.

The Disney sequel debuted with $96.2 million topping the previous record holder, 2011's “Fast Five,” which opened with $86.2 million. Last weekend “The Winter Soldier,” which stars Chris Evans as the shield wielding superhero, commanded 32 international markets, gaining $75.2 million in its overseas bow.

Expanding to Russia, Australia and China in its second week, the Marvel comic adaptation has earned $207.1 million worldwide.

Paramount's biblical saga “Noah,” starring Russell Crowe, took a drastic dip in its second weekend, earning $17 million after debuting with $44 million. Still, it sailed into second place, pushing Lionsgate's young adult science-fiction thriller “Divergent,” led by Shailene Woodley, to third with $13 million in its third week.
