In the last week alone, we’ve seen Captain America: Civil War push the collective Marvel Cinematic Universe over the $10 billion mark as it passed $300 million domestically and soared toward a global total of over $1 billion. Today, the Joe and Anthony Russo movie should cross that milestone, making it the fourth of Disney/Marvel’s movies to do so. It’s also Disney’s 10th billion-dollar film, which is pretty impressive considering that there are only 25 of them in cinema history.
Thursday’s box office total give the third Cap film a $3.7 million boost domestically to bring the current tally to $314.3 million after 13 days of release, a number it took Batman v Superman more than four weeks to reach. Now on its 57th day of release, the Warner Bros./DC Comics superhero slamfest looks to be topping out around $328.5 to $330 million, a number that Captain America: Civil War has not yet met but easily could this weekend.
Internationally, Cap’s additional $5.3 million from Thursday brings the day’s total to $9 million, leveling the global box office total off at $991 million after 24 days of global release. This makes the film the #1 worldwide box office of 2016 and puts it behind Marvel’s The Avengers ($1.518 billion), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.405 billion), and Iron Man 3 ($1.215 billion) in the billion-dollar-club. Be sure to check back this weekend for both our full Friday and Weekend box office reports.
