The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been known for its money making blockbusters and for now it seems like that’s not changing any time soon. Within less than a month of its international release, Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War has become the highest grossing film internationally of this new year with a whopping $671.4 million. And Marvel has China to thank for about a forth of that, so this is just further proof that movies need to appeal more to the Asian market because there is money to be made.
On the domestic front, Fox’s Deadpool still holds this year’s top spot with $362.5 million, but I have a feeling its reign is about to end. Domestically Civil War has made $310.5 million and that’s just from two weeks in theaters. While Deadpool was indeed smash hit, it’s hard to deny that Civil War will beat it out in the coming days.
Now when you add up all the numbers Civil War comes up to $981.8 million, and this train doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. Within this next weekend, we’ll surely be seeing this epic move cross the $1 billion mark, making Civil War the fourth MCU film to do so. So props to Anthony + Joe Russo, Kevin Feige, and the rest of the Marvel team. You guys have outdone yourself once again.
