“Captain America: Civil War” is expected to finish its second weekend of U.S. release with another $70 million in its coffers, even as the Marvel Studios sequel pushed past $807 million Friday in the worldwide box office.
Deadline reports “Captain America” brought in somewhere around $19.5 million domestically on Friday on its way to an estimated $70 million weekend. That expected tally represents a drop of about 61 percent from its opening. By comparison, 2014’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” saw a 57-percent drop in its second weekend.
“Civil War’s” stiffest competition comes from fellow Disney film “The Jungle Book,” which will likely finish the weekend at No. 2, even as it too crosses the $800 million mark globally.
At this rate, both films seem destined to reach $1 billion by the end of their runs.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp and Tom Holland.
