Captain America: Civil War has been receiving rave reviews thus far, so it should come as no surprise to learn that Marvel’s first Phase 3 movie looks set to be a massive hit. That’s because tracking points to it debuting in North America with a massive $175 million haul.
In fact, some analysts even believe it could go as high as $200 million, something which really wouldn’t come as too much of a surprise when you take into account how often the Marvel movies have exceeded expectations. As things stand though, Captain America: Civil War is already on track to having the fifth highest opening of all-time.
With around $175 million, Captain America: Civil War should come in behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($248 million), Jurassic World ($208.8 million), Marvel’s The Avengers ($207.4 million), and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191.3 million). However, should word of mouth prove to be strong enough, don’t be surprised if it moves up a few places.
Captain America: Civil War opens internationally in a number of locations later this month, and with a Chinese release also beckoning, who knows how high it will ultimately go. Chances are though that it will end up performing quite a bit better than Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, as that movie is currently struggling to reach $900 million.
