“Captain America: Civil War” Wins Box Office For Second Weekend
Chris Evans and Robert Downey, Jr. are still box office superheroes as Captain America: Civil War won its second weekend in a row. As Gossip Cop reported, the latest Marvel film made history last week with one of the biggest openings of all time. Now, it remains on top with another $72.6 million in ticket sales this time around. Its reign, however, will likely end later this month with the debut of another Marvel installment, X-Men: Apocalypse.
Former chart-topper The Jungle Book hung on to second place with $17.8 million at this weekend’s box office. The new movie Money Monster, directed by Jodie Foster and starring George Clooney with Julia Roberts, took third place with $15 million. That’s not a bad start for the film, which was made for $27 million. The new horror flick The Darkness nabbed the number four spot with $5.2 million, while Mother’s Day secured the fifth position with a haul of $3.3 million.
Rounding out the Top 10 were Zootopia, which edged out The Huntsman: Winter’s War for sixth with $2.8 million, while the latter settled for seventh with $2.6 million. Keanu came in eighth place with $1.9 million, and Barbershop: The Next Cut took ninth with $1.7 million. Just making it into the Top 10 was The Boss with $1.2 million.
