Damn Marvel! Back at it again with the record smashing!
Earning $181.8 on its opening weekend, Civil War has become the 5th highest grossing movie of all time and the 3rd highest grossing Marvel movie behind Avengers 1 & 2.
With $494 million internationally after just two weeks, it has surpassed international lifetime cumes for several Marvel films already - Captain America ($194M), Iron Man ($267M), Thor ($268M), Iron Man 2 ($312M), Ant-Man ($339M), Thor: The Dark World ($438M), Guardians of the Galaxy ($440M) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($455M)).
It has also helped Disney break its own record - becoming the fastest studio to cross $1 billion at the box office in just 128 days this year. The previous record for the fastest studio to hit a billion in a year was set in 2015 by Universal in 165 days.
