This past Friday, Marvel’s latest film “Captain America: Civil War” came to U.S. box offices, with a $181 million opening weekend! It was of course on the top of the weekend box office’s charts, finally bumping “The Jungle Book” to second place.
In previous weeks, “Civil War” opened in international box offices, so far bringing in $496 million. That means just since its first weekend in domestic theaters, the film has earned a whopping $678 million worldwide!
This huge May opening weekend has become the fifth biggest domestic opening of all time, and overall the third highest grossing Marvel Studios film (“Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Avengers” still take the lead). With “The Jungle Book” having up till this point been the highest on the box office charts every day since its April 15th opening, I think “Captain America: Civil War” will definitely be following suit, with an incredibly long time in the top spot.
I thought this film was incredible, and with so much synergy of the Marvel Universe and the Avengers it almost felt like an Avengers 2.5! You can check out our official review of the film here.
