“Captain America: Civil War” Box Office Projections Readjust to $180m from $200m

The box office projections for “Captain America: Civil War’s” opening weekend have shifted. According to Variety, the “Winter Soldier” sequel is now expected to earn about $180 million at the North American box office, where it was originally on track to earn $200m.

With the current projections, “Civil War” is expected to become one of the top five openings of all time, joining films like “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($248m), “Jurassic World” ($208.8m), “The Avengers” ($207.4m), “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($191.3m) and “Iron Man 3” ($174m).

REVIEW: “Captain America: Civil War” Absolutely “Lives Up To The Hype”

“Civil War” debuted in foreign markets just over a week ago, earning a total of $291.2m overseas to date. This total does not include China, where it shares a release date with North America. Though the film didn’t beat out “Age of Ultron’s” record domestically, it’s on track to do similar numbers there; in comparison, “Age of Ultron” managed to earn $1.4 billion worldwide by the end of its theater run. However, it scored $3.1m at IMAX, overcoming “Age of Ultron’s” $3m by a slim margin.

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 will also introduce 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.
