The Critical and Box Office Superhero Smash, Captain America: Civil War, remains King of the UK Box Office.
The film that has been dubbed the “best” Marvel film yet, Captain America: Civil War has once again taken the top spot at the UK box office beating out newcomer Bad Neighbours 2. Predicted to take £5.1 million this weekend the film has now made over £27.6 million at the UK box office which, after just 9 days, has surpassed the lifetime ultimate box offices of all the Captain America and Thor films along with Iron Man and Iron Man 2.
Captain America: Civil War also opened this weekend at number one in the US taking $181.7 million. The result is bigger than the opening of Batman vs Superman and Marvel’s Iron Man 3 making it the fifth biggest film opening of all time in the US.
In the UK Disney also looks set to take both the number one and two spots at the box office with The Jungle Book still holding strong. The film is set to surpass both Batman vs Superman and Deadpool this week to become the biggest film of 2016 in the UK.

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo and Martin Freeman, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl. Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.
