BOX OFFICE: CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Passes BATMAN V SUPERMAN Domestically; Tops THE DARK KNIGHT Worldwide

Marvel Studios continues to assert their dominance over the genre as Captain America: Civil War passed not one, but two DC comic book movies at the box office this weekend. Read on for details...

Despite dropping to second place with a 54% drop, Captain America: Civil War earned another $33.1 million this weekend for a domestic total of  $347.4 million  - passing Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice's ($328 million) and Zootopia ($334 million) to become the second highest domestic earner this year behind only Deadpool ($362 million). Now sitting at $1.053 billion worldwide, the Captain America threequel has topped the likes of The Dark Knight, Jurrasic Park and Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace to become the 19th highest grossing movie of all-time. 

In terms of comic book movies, it trails behind only The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and The Dark Knight Rises, making it the 5th highest grossing comic book movie of all-time after only 24 days of release - and it's still looking like it could end up between Iron Man 3 and Avengers: Age of Ultron when all is said and done. Not bad for a kid from Brooklyn, eh?
