Captain America: Civil War Dominates the Box Office for Second Weekend

Captain America Civil War still maintained its top position on the box office leading Disney over the $10 billion mark.

Captain America: Civil War has managed to remain on top of the domestic and international box office for its second weekend. Even though the movie fell 59% in the course of one week compared to its first weekend, it still managed to remain on top of the box office with ease.

Bringing in an estimated $72.5 million compared to its $179 million debut, the 59% drop is consistent with the Avengers Age of Ultron one weekend drop and 10 points less than Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice. 

Following the second weekend, the film now stands at $940 million globally including the international total to $645 million, according to BoxOfficeMojo. With these figures, Captain America Civil War has become the fourth largest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to chase down the $1 billion mark.

It is still Disney’s dominance this weekend too as The Jungle Book remained on the second spot earning an estimated $17.7 million, pushing the film's cume over $310 million. The Jungle Book also brought in another $15.2 million overseas bringing its international cume to $516.3 million and its global total to $828 million.

The other movies that managed to do well this weekend was George Clooney and Julia Roberts starrer, Money Monster. Presented by TriStar and directed by Jodie Foster, the movie premiered on Cannes Film Festival this past week and received a mildly positive response.

The movie’s commercial success was dependent on the theatres and it might be accredited to the two main stars that the movie brought in $15 million which was beyond the expectation. Although both the stars have the gravitas to bring in much more but the movie is yet to be released in international theatres. 

The fourth grossing movie this weekend was Kevin Bacon and David Mazouz horror movie, The Darkness. The movie brought in an estimated $5.18 million which is above the expected earning for this micro budgeted movie. Mother’s Day brought about the fifth position with $3.25 million.
