It’s finally here, after months of waiting and months of eager anticipation Captain America: Civil War is finally here! Wrapping up the Captain America trilogy. Boy, what a film it is, The Russo Brothers have done another stealer job and it is making a killing at the box office.
Civil War hit European cinemas on the 28th/29th of April, followed by US cinemas on May 6th, it comes as no surprise that it is making a bomb. Between the US and European market, Captain America: Civil War has made a whopping $678million already. Considering it only opened in the US 3 days ago, to reach that number already is impressive. A good chunk of it though would have been from the European market.
The comic book movie which is based around the comicbook minseries fo the same name by Mark Millar made more than $180 million this weekend in North America making it the years biggest opening so far. It also helped Disney pass the $1 billion mark in box office revenue for the year so far. Disney aren’t doing to bad for themselves.
The big question now is can Civil War catch Batman Vs Superman which earned $865 million worldwide, which is an impressive feat for a film that was critically slated. Judging by how well Marvel movies do at the box office and how well both Avengers movies done (both breaking the billion mark) there is every chance that Civil War will over take Batman Vs Superman and continue on its path towards breaking the $1 billion threshold. With Zootopia wrapping it its impressive run in the cinema, racking in a massive $956 million worldwide, it opens the door for Civil War to be the first film to break a billion this year.
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
It is in cinemas worldwide now.
