‘Captain America: Civil War’ Climbs to $38.7 Million in First 2 Days at Foreign Box Office

Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” has grossed a dominant $38.7 million in its first two days in 30 international markets, finishing first in all territories.

Disney noted that the superhero tentpole is pacing on par with last year’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” in the same  markets. “Ulton” grossed $946 million internationally, which is equivalent to $893 million at current rates.

South Korea leads the pack with $7.7 million after two days, followed by France with $3.7 million in two days and Brazil, which took in $2.7 million on its opening day on Thursday.

The Brazilian haul was the second-highest opening day ever in that market, behind only “Stars Wars: The Force Awakens” and 31% ahead of “Ultron.” Its market share hit 90%.

The Philippines has generated $2.4 million in two days, followed by Taiwan with $2.4 million in the same amount of time.

Australia grossed $2.4 million on its opening day on Thursday — 3% ahead of “Ultron” — with a 76% market share. Germany’s opening day on Thursday hit $1.9 million, 1% behind “Ultron.”

Captain America: Civil War” will be open in 63% of the international marketplace by Sunday. Pre-release tracking estimates suggest that the superhero sequel could rack up roughly $200 million overseas after its first five days in theaters.

An opening of that size would put it in line with the foreign launches of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($212 million) and “Iron Man 3” ($160 million).

The tentpole stars Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Chris Evans’ title character, and introduces Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. The “Winter Soldier” directorial team of Joe and Anthony Russo returns to helm.

“Captain America: Civil War” hits theaters in the U.S. on May 6, with some analysts estimating it could score a $200 million launch.
