Captain America: Civil War wasn’t expected to have any trouble repeating as the box office champ and easily retained the top spot with $72.5 million.
Worldwide, Civil War hit $940 million en route to becoming 2016’s first $1 billion film. It’s already No. 33 on the all-time international list. Domestically, it’s No. 64, but by this time next week it should be approaching the 25-33 all-time range.
In second place was another Walt Disney film, The Jungle Book, which added another $17.7 million to take its overall haul to $311 million. JB seems assured of surpassing Alice in Wonderland’s total of $334 million to become Disney’s top live action adaptation.
George Clooney and Julia Roberts’ big screen reunion, Monster Money, brought in $15 million in its debut week. That’s on the lower end of Clooney debuts, but better than the paltry $10 million for February’s Hail Cesar. This was a better than the new norm for Roberts and again a stronger performer than her most recent film, April’s Mother’s Day, which opened to $8.3 million. Horror/thriller The Darkness came in fourth with $5.1 million in its debut while Mother’s Day closed out the Top 5 with $3.2 million to bring its total to $28.7 million. The film has now earned back its $25 million budget even as it’s winding down its box office run.
