'Captain America: Civil War' earns $200.2 mn

Los Angeles, May 2 (IANS) “Captain America: Civil War” dominated the foreign box office, debuting to a massive $200.2 million in its first weekend of overseas release.

The Disney and Marvel superhero adventure will open here on May 6.

Disney distribution chief Dave Hollis hailed the Marvel films as a model of commercial consistency in a business that is notoriously unpredictable, reports variety.com.

 

“They have found a way to keep the films unbelievably fresh and the reception to this leading into its opening suggests that they’ve delivered arguably one of the best films to come out of the studio,” he said. “We expect a lot of repeat business.”

“Captain America: Civil War” promises the spectacle of watching Captain America (Chris Evans) square off against Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). It also introduces Tom Holland’s take on Spider-Man and marks the first appearance of Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther.

The film played well in premium formats, with Imax responsible for $9.6 million of the foreign box office haul.

Among the most significant contributors were Korea with $28.9 million, Mexico with $20.6 million, Britain with $20.5 million, Brazil with $12.3 million and Australia with $10.9 million. The Brazil and Mexico openings set a new industry high, as did the film’s $7.5 million kick-off in the Philippines.

In addition to North America, next weekend will also see “Captain America: Civil War” debuting in China, Russia, Italy and Argentina.
