‘Captain America’ Still Holding Strong at U.S. and Global Box Office
Captain America: Civil War is holding strong at the box office for a second weekend in a row.
The film, which stars Chris Evans as Captain America and his fellow Avengers Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner, brought in $72 million this weekend, bringing the U.S. total to $296 million. Captain America: Civil War has brought in $645 million overseas to date.
This weekend’s totals for Captain America: Civil War makes it the eight largest second-weekend grossing film of all time and the seventh largest 10 day total of all time.
The Jungle Book held on to second place with a $17.8 million U.S. box office haul in its fifth week on release, taking its international tally past the $800 million mark.
Director Jodie Foster’s Money Monster, which was a big hit at the Cannes Film Festival last week, debuted in the third slot with a $15 million opening weekend. While we didn’t think the film was that amazing, those at the film festival gave a four minute standing ovation at the end of Cannes premiere on May 12th.
The Darkness and Mother’s Day, round out the remaining top five.
