"Captain America: Civil War" Passes "Deadpool" as Top-Grossing U.S. Film of 2016

"Deadpool" has reigned at the top of the 2016 North American box office since its record-breaking opening in February, fending off competition from the likes of "Zootopia," "The Jungle Book" and "Batman v Superman." But as of this weekend, the Merc With a Mouth officially lost his 2016 crown.

Box Office Mojo reports that Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" is now the highest-grossing film of the year in North America with $372.6 million. "Deadpool" slips to No. 2 with $362.8 million.

"Deadpool" remains the highest-grossing "X-Men" film and the highest-grossing R-rated movie, two titles Wade Wilson would surely be proud to hold.

"Civil War" has grossed $1.1 billion worldwide, with "Deadpool" trailing distantly at $736 million. However, the Merc With a Mouth should receive a bit of a boost when his film finally opens June 1 in Japan.
