People around the world where Captain America: Civil War opened this weekend flocked to theaters, no surprise there, to watch the latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise.
Marvel’s latest sees Chris Evans‘ Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.‘s Iron Man (and their assembled teams of superheroes) go head-to-head in an intimate battle of ideology. While Civil War is off to a tremendous start, it also has the potential for some serious legs, with a widely positive audience and critical reception. The film curretly boasts a 94% rating with 90 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the best-reviewed Marvel film to date (if it can hold on to that number).
Civil War launched internationally this weekend, rolling out to 63% of the foreign marketplace, where it landed the top spot in every territory in which it opened except Japan, and earned a massive $200.2 million at the box office — one of the biggest international launches of all time, falling just shy of last year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
In fact, Civil War bested Ultron‘s record debut in several individual markets, coming in as the all-time biggest film debut in The Philippines ($7.5M), Brazil ($12.3M) and Mexico ($20.6M). Some other notable territories include Korea ($28.9M), UK ($20.5M), and Australia ($10.9M).
“Captain America: Civil War” is now showing in Philippine cinemas nationwide in 2D, 3D, Dolby Atmos, 4D and IMAX 3D.
