Well, color us red white and surprised! Captain America did better overseas than it did in the US of A! Despite concerns that the jingoistic title would turn a lot of non-Americans off from the film, Captain America: The First Avenger made $173.5 million domestic and $178 million internationally. AMERICA! [THR]

I'm glad it did well. I thoroughly enjoyed Cap, in fact my favourite bit was all the faux-jingoistic 'Americaaaaaaaa!' stuff that Steve had to do initially. It was great seeing the retro styled suit, and the Cap showtune was fantastic!
