On Thursday night, “Captain America: Civil War” opened in 15 more foreign territories, including Latin America, and snagged another hefty box office haul. Deadline reports the film’s box office total has risen to $38.7 million overseas.
“Civil War” became Brazil’s second highest opening of all time with $2.7m, a whopping 31% ahead of their “Avenger: Age of Ultron’s” debut; Australia’s debut of the film also put it 3% ahead of “Age of Ultron” with $2.3m. “Civil War” fell behind “Age of Ultron” only 1% in Germany with $1.9m, while it became the third highest opening of all time in Chile and Central America. “Civil War” also saw a massive debut in the Netherlands.
On Wednesday, “Civil War” scored the third biggest opening of all time in South Korea ($4.3m), the Philippines ($1.5m) and Hong Kong ($1.1m). In France, the film earned the title of top opening day of 2016 with a $2.4m haul. The film’s numbers continued to be strong on Thursday, as Korea’s total rose to $7.7m and France’s to $3.7m.
By this weekend, “Civil War” will release in roughly 63 percent of the foreign marketplace. The film, which is on track to earn more than $200m overseas this weekend, isn’t far behind “Avengers: Age of Ultron” with its opening box office numbers and looks to knock out predecessors like “Iron Man 3” ($160m) and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” ($78 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. It will also introduce several new characters, like Black Panther. The film also marks Spider-Man’s Marvel Cinematic Universe debut.
