That 2015 Marvel Studios sequel went on to gross $946 million overseas, the most for any superhero film.
“Civil War” emerged as the No. 1 film in all 38 territories, and opened Friday in Mexico with a record $7.3 million, surpassing the previous milestone set by none other than “Age of Ultron.”
The United Kingdom followed close behind with a $7 million opening day, which Variety points out is 33 percent ahead of the “Avengers” sequel. “Civil War” premiered Wednesday in South Korea, where it’s already pulled in $12.6 million in three days.
The film is now playing in 63 percent of the international marketplace, where pre-release tracking suggests its box-office haul could rise to $200 million within five days.
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. The film opens next weekend in the United States, Italy, Russia, China and Argentina.
