‘Captain America: Civil War’ Dominates International Box Office With $220 Million

Captain America: Civil War” is ruling the world with $220 million in 56 international markets over the weekend, led by a $95 million launch in China.

The stellar international performance, combined with an $181.8 million U.S. opening, gave the Disney-Marvel tentpole a worldwide total of slightly over $400 million for the weekend. The worldwide total for “Civil War” — which opened last weekend with $200 million in 37 foreign territories — is now $678.4 million in less than two weeks.

Disney noted that the decline in holdover markets was just 53%, coming off what was a holiday weekend in many markets.

The Chinese opening was the second-largest for a Hollywood film after “Transformers: Age of Extinction” and 17% ahead of last year’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” In India, the launch was the second-biggest for a Marvel title after “Ultron.”

Russia saw a first-place opening with $9.1 million for an estimated 77% market share. In Korea, “Civil War” is already the seventh-largest release of all time after two weeks at $53.9 million, while it’s the fourth-highest in the Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan.

As in the U.S., Disney’s “The Jungle Book” finished a distant second with $24.1 million in 53 markets, lifting the international gross to $491.2 million. China has been the top foreign market with $147.3 million.

China’s romantic comedy sequel “Finding Mr. Right 2,” starring Tang Wei and Wu Xiubo, came in third with $13 million in seven markets, lifting the total to $95 million.

Universal launched comedy sequel “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” with $9 million in 16 markets, two weeks ahead of the U.S. launch. The Seth Rogen-Rose Byrne vehicle generated $2.8 million in the U.K., $2 million in Australia and $1.7 million in Germany.

Disney’s “Zootopia” followed in fifth with $5.7 million in 37 markets, lifting its international total to $628.8 million. China has generated the top number with $235.6 million.

“Zootopia” has grossed $956.4 million worldwide. Should it manage to take in another $44 million, it will become the 25th film to hit $1 billion in box office.
