‘Captain America: Civil War’ Outselling All Previous Marvel Studios Films On Fandango

Civil War HeaderWhile tracking has Captain America: Civil War eyeing a $175M opening weekend, it’s looking like the film is about to open much higher than that. According to Fandango, the upcoming film is outselling all previous Marvel Studios films and has even sold more tickets two weeks ahead of it’s release than the The Avengers did at this point.

With the amoungt of hype surrounding the film and these kind of ticket sales, there’s a very good chance that we might see Captain America: Civil War surpass The Avengers massive $207.5M opening weekend. Could it also go on to surpass it’s total worldwide gross? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.

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.

Get ready to choose your side when Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.

    Damn! That’s incredible.

    Not surprising. The whole movie-going experience in general is a lot different now. With place offering reserved seating and Alamo Drafthouse being such a badass theater, I pre-ordered my Civil War tickets on March 10th, the day they became available.

    The metrics on projections for opening weekend have to be so much more accurate now as a result of this.

    I think the movie will open bigger than Avengers, but overseas it will not, and in total box office it won’t pass the $1.2Bil mark.

      I disagree…Marvel movies have always done better overseas. And this is getting VERY positive buzz. If it doesn’t surpass Avengers, I’ll be surprised.

        Openings – $191,271,109 (USA), $180,488,891 (Non-USA).
        Total – $459,005,868 (USA), $946,408,000 (Non-USA).
        It may open bigger on both fronts, but “…Marvel movies have always done better overseas…” as an argument doesn’t make much sense.
        It won’t outgross in total overseas though.

    Hope it excels. It will definitely put pressure on competing studios to up their game. Apple had to think out of the box to beat the competition, not other studios need to do the same. Who will step up?

      Valiant Comics? lol, There was news of movies being made for their characters.
