"Captain America: Winter Soldier" has been in theaters for about a week, but in that short time it's already managed to break records.

It made $92 million this past weekend giving it the biggest April opening of all time and it out-earned the first Captain America's three day total by $27 million.

Many credit the new dark and thrilling tone that the directing team of Joe and Anthony Russo injected into the sequel. Host A Martinez sat down with both of them recently to talk about the movie, and what it took to make it.
