Captain America: Civil War continues to impress at the box office and has now become the biggest global movie of 2016. This is an impressive achievement considering that Civil War was released on May 6th.

As of Wednesday, Civil War has already earned $310.5 million domestically and $671.4 million internationally, giving it a global total of $981.9 million. With these totals, it has passed Zootopia ($971.3 million worldwide) to become the biggest movie of the year.

The real winner in all of these box office numbers would be Disney. Disney has taken the top three spots when it comes to global gross with Civil War, Zootopia, and The Jungle Book. The Jungle Book has been a massive success to date, bringing in over $831 million worldwide.

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.

    This just goes to show that the stupidest things are the most popular. This was the silliest movie I’d seen in quite a long time. I’m soooo glad I didn’t pay money for this.
