Civil War Scores $84M So Far Overseas

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opened in around thirty-eight international markets this weekend where the film is tracking on par with last year’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” in those markets. In just three days, and with the release staggered over those three days, the film has still managed to generate an impressive $84 million so far.

Highlights include:
Korea $12.6M
Mexico $7.3M
UK $7.0M
Brazil $5.4M
France $5.2M
Australia $4.5M
Philippines $3.8M
Taiwan $3.8M
Germany $3.7M
Hong Kong $3.2M
Japan $2.8M
Thailand $2.7M
Malaysia $2.2M
Other markets $19.8M
Total $84.0M

Reviews for the film have been very healthy – a very strong 81/100 on Metacritic which makes it the second highest scoring wide release of 2016 so far behind only “The Witch” (83) and ahead of “Zootopia” (78).

In related news, “Iron Man” director was recently asked by IGN as to whether he would ever get back in the director’s chair for another Marvel Cinematic Universe feature. He said:

“A great story. I know the people over there. I like them. I still executive produce the Avengers series and I like what they’re doing a lot now, I do. By the same token I feel like I’ve made my mark; whatever we did in those early days has continued and is in good hands with new filmmakers with fresh voices.”

“Captain America: Civil War” opens in further territories, including the United States, this coming Friday. Check out a new clip showing off more of the Black Panther below.
