“Captain America: Civil War” Becomes First Film to Cross $400m Domestically This Year

After 43 days, “Captain America: Civil War” has crossed $400 million at the domestic box office. According to Deadline, that makes “Civil War” the first film to hit this milestone this year.

In hitting this milestone, “Civil War” passes by several other big box office hits from earlier this year, including “Deadpool” ($363m), “The Jungle Book” ($354m), “Zootopia” ($338.5m) and “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” ($330.3m).

“Captain America: Civil War” scored the fifth-biggest box office opening of all time in North America, behind record-holders “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” with $248 million, “Jurassic World” with $208.8 million, and familiar team-ups “Marvel’s The Avengers” with $207.4 million and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” with $191.3 million. “Captain America: Civil War” knocked off the third installment of Marvel’s “Iron Man” franchise for fifth place in the all-time record books, which brought in $174.1 million.

Though technically a sequel to “Captain America’s” second solo outing “The Winter Solider,” the movie boasts an impressive list of characters, including Iron Man, Black Widow, Falcon and Bucky Barnes, as they butt heads over a document called the Sokovia Accords. It also introduces several new characters, like Black Panther. The film also marks Spider-Man’s Marvel Cinematic Universe debut.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and more, “Captain America: Civil War” is now in theaters.
