Captain America: Civil War obviously opened at the number one spot, bringing in the fifth largest opening weekend of all-time with an estimated $181.79 million opening weekend. That is also the third largest opening for a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film’s estimated global take is now at $678 million after launching internationally last weekend. What’s even more amazing is that with with $496.6 million internationally after just two weeks, it has already surpassed the lifetime international cumes of Captain America ($194M), Iron Man ($267M), Thor ($268M), Iron Man 2 ($312M), Ant-Man ($339M), Thor: The Dark World ($438M), Guardians of the Galaxy ($440M) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($455M).
Disney’s other juggernaut finally dropped to the number two spot. The Jungle Book, which dropped just 50% this weekend, added an estimated $21.8 million and is now just short of $285 million. Internationally, the film has garnered $776 million.
In third was the surprised increase of Mother’s Day. The Gary Marshall had a disappointing opening weekend last week but rebounded well by seeing a 7.6% increase this weekend, likely due to the Mother’s Day Holiday Weekend. It brought in an estimated $9 million as its cume now totals just over $20 million.
Sadly, Keanu dropped 67.4% with an estimated $3 million and Ratchet & Clank continues to disappoint with a $1.46 million weekend, a 70% drop.
Next weekend will showcase the release of the Blumhouse horror flick The Darkness and Jodie Foster’s Money Monster starring George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Jack O’Connell.
