Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” has soared past $1 billion at the worldwide box office — the 25th movie to do so.

The tentpole hit $314 million in the U.S. on Thursday, its 14th day of domestic release, and $677 million internationally after 23 days.

Disney noted that it’s the top grosser of 2016 and the fourth Marvel Cinematic Universe film to pass $1 billion, joining “The Avengers” ($1.518 billion), “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($1.405 billion) and “Iron Man 3” ($1.215 billion).

The 13 titles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have hauled more than $10 billion in global box office, with nearly $2.1 billion coming from the three “Captain America” films.

Captain America: Civil War” is Disney’s 10th billion-dollar release out of the 25 films that have hit the milestone. Its “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is third on the list with $2.06 billion, trailing only “Avatar” at $2.78 billion and “Titanic” at $2.19 billion.
