Jungle Book Dominates While Captain America: Civil War Explodes
The Jungle Book continues to dominate the domestic box office. It remained in the top spot for the third week in a row adding an estimated $42.4 million to its total bringing the domestic earnings to $252.1 million.
The film had very little competition in new films. Keanu was the highest profile and came in third earning an estimated $9.4 million. Mother’s Day came in fourth earning an estimated $8.3 million. Ratchet & Clank just clanked coming in seventh with $4.8 million.
When it comes to comic films…
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was in ninth adding an estimated $3.8 million to bring its domestic total to $325.1 million. The film has earned $862.9 million worldwide so far. Deadpool continues to bring in the cash adding $440,000 to its domestic total to bring that to $361.8 million. That film has earned $761.2 million worldwide.
Captain America: Civil War opened in international markets to bring in an estimated $200.2 million. That’s just shy of Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s $201.2 million. The film was #1 in all the territories that it opened except Japan. The film opens up this week domestically as well as expands internationally. We’ll see what records the film can break when that happens.
