‘Captain America: Civil War’ Hits $940 Million Worldwide

Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” has the $1 billion worldwide box office milestone in its sights as the tentpole took in $156 million this weekend.

Captain America: Civil War” has also moved the 13-title Marvel Cinematic Universe past $10 billion worldwide, taken in over the past nine years.

“Civil War,” which began its international run on April 27, topped the $940 million mark in worldwide box office on Sunday. By the end of this week, it should become the 25th title to exceed $1 billion, and the seventh superhero title after “The Avengers” ($1.52 billion), “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($1.41 billion), “Iron Man 3” ($1.22 billion), “The Dark Knight Rises” ($1.09 billion) and “The Dark Knight” ($1.04 billion).

The ten-day domestic total of $296 million for “Captain America: Civil War” has already gone far past the final cumes of the previous two titles in the franchise — 2011’s “Captain America” at $177 million and 2014’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” at $260 million.

With Chris Evans returning in the title role in a face-off with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, the franchise is showing plenty of traction outside the U.S. Its international total has hit $645 million, making “Civil War” the fourth-highest -grossing superhero movie of all time behind “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($946 million), “The Avengers” ($895 million) and “Iron Man 3” ($806 million).

China is the top international market by far with $155.8 million in ten days, making it the third-highest-grossing Disney release there behind “Zootopia” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” South Korea is second with $60.1 million, followed by the U.K. at $46.7 million, Mexico at $39.2 million and Brazil at $32.9 million.
