If the early press reviews are anything to go by, Captain America: Civil War could be in for a hefty haul at the box office this weekend.
While the film doesn't open until May 6th in North America, it will roll-out in 63% of the foreign markets this coming weekend, and predictions (via THR) are that if that 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes is true of the general audience as well, it could hit in excess of $200 million by weekend's end.
In comparison, Iron Man 3 opened to $160 million while Captain America: Winter Solider opened to $78 million. Avengers opened to $185 million internationally, so if Civil War can surpass it, it will be quite an achievement, but one that doesn't seem that far out of reach. With the additions of Spider-Man, Ant-Man, and Black Panther, the roster size makes Avengers look small, and should help bolster it's opening weekend draw.0comments
