Captain America Civil War Opens to 202 Million Overseas


Well, I think we all saw this coming, right? Early reports are coming in and it looks like the Captain America: Civil War opens to the international tune of 202 million dollars. Yowzah! And that isn’t even in the United States yet. A Rotten Tomatoes rating of 94% (certified fresh), positive word of mouth and early reviews have catapulted Civil War to a staggeringly good performance. That places the Civil War opening at around 5% behind Age of Ultron but 26% ahead of the openings for Iron Man 3 and The Avengers.

“In some individual markets, Civil War came in ahead of Ultron, as it scored the biggest debut of all time for any film in Mexico ($20.6 million), Brazil ($12.3 million) and the Philippines ($7.5 million). All told, Civil War rolled out in about 63 percent of the foreign marketplace this weekend,” reports the source. I think that pretty much guarantees that Captain America: Civil War will make over a billion dollars which seems to be the magic number these days. If that Rotten Tomatoes level stays the same then it will be the highest rated Marvel movie ever!

Captain America: Civil War opens up domestically, and in China and Russia on May 6th, 2016 and stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Tom Holland, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, and Daniel Brühl.
