Captain America: Civil War Scores Fifth Highest Opening At Box Office

Matt McGloin Posted: 05/08/2016 - 13:37 COMMENT

Estimates are pegging Captain America: Civil War with the fifth highest opening off all time at the domestic box office.

While Captain America: Civil War didn't hit the $200 million mark, it did bring in $181.8 million for its opening weekend, which is a tad bit lower than some of the estimates of $188 million, but obviously nothing to complain about.

Captain America: Civil War also scored a huge international box office gross with $496 million.

To date, Captain America: Civil War has already amassed $678,391,000 million worldwide.

For those keeping track of the Batman Vs. Superman box office comparisons (opened $166 million), Batman Vs. Superman beat Captain America: Civil War in its Thursday and Friday screenings, but Civil War is estimated to come out on top for Saturday and Sunday.

And if you are wondering, the top four grossing movies for opening weekends goes to:

Star Wars: The Force Awakens  ($247.996m)
Jurassic World  ($208.806m)
The Avengers  ($207.438m)
The Avengers 2  ($191.271m)

"Captain America: Civil War" is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.


Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
