Captain America: Civil War might not be an Avengers movie, but it does feature more Avengers in one place than we’ve ever seen before in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately, they’re not getting on very well with one another.
The second entry from Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo sees the superhero team divided over the issue of whether or not they should be free to battle bad guys as soon as they appear, or whether they should wait for permission from the United Nations – and be willing to stand down if that permission isn’t granted.
Between the emotional interplay among all the characters that audiences have come to know and love, the promise of jaw-dropping action scenes including an all-out brawl at an airport, and the introduction of Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) to the fray, there are plenty of reasons to go and see Captain America: Civil War in theaters this weekend. And based on the latest box office numbers, audiences seem to agree. According to Deadline, Civil War cashed $61 million in ticket sales on Saturday, bringing its opening weekend domestic take up to an estimated $181.8 million.
The film has also been performing extremely well in Disney’s second-biggest market, China, where ChinaBoxOfficereports that it debuted with an estimated $96.2 million. The latest Deadline summary puts the movie at a staggering total of $678.39 million worldwide – more than enough to keep Marvel happy, especially if it ends up holding strong over its second weekend.
