It appears that Captain America: Civil War will continue its reign over the box office for another weekend. It has been predicted that Civil War will bring in around $77 million in its weekend.
With this estimated gross, Civil War will have a drop of around 57%. This is a very similar drop to that of Avengers: Age of Ultron during its second weekend in release. Good word of mouth and overall positive reviews have helped to keep the momentum behind Civil War.
Civil War will be reaching $800 million worldwide by the end of the today and predictions have it coming in at $950 million by Sunday. It seems that $1 billion is now just a matter of days away and will be another impressive accomplishment for Marvel.
The other main competition this weekend is Money Monster, which is directed by Jodie Foster and stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts. Money Monster is likely to bring in around $15 million, which is higher than initial exceptions.
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
