Captain America Box Office Prediction: Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” is set to release worldwide on 6 May 2016. The release is barely a month after Warner Bros.’ “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice” released in March.
The war between the two franchises for gaining more fanfare also has another angle to it, the fight of money making. After “Deadpool” became the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time, the market is rife with speculations about who would make the most amount of money.

Despite facing criticism and being the butt of all jokes, “Dawn of Justice” successfully clocked $166 million in the opening weekend. Gone are the days when we used to have particular seasons for the release of movies.
“Deadpool” released in February and made almost $800 million. “Dawn of Justice” didn’t do badly, too. The producers went homes with bags full of cash.
Traditionally, summer is considered a good time for movie releases. So, one could not be wrong in saying that “Civil War” has the conditions most apt for its release, with no competition in line and viewers having enough time to watch it.

According to early tracking reports, “Captain America: Civil War” is projected to take in around $175 million during its debut weekend.
If this number is to be believed, “Civil War” would be the fifth-highest opening weekend gross of all time. In my opinion, this is too less a number for a movie like “Civil War”. Marvel fans have had eight years or so getting familiar with the characters. And they did grow on them. The film has generated enough hype among the fans to easily have the shows house-full for the first few days, to say the least.
Tracking reports aren’t always accurate. According to the reports, “Zootopia” was believed to make $60 million at most, but ended up with $70 million. Similar was the case with “The Jungle Book”. It makes it even harder to believe the reports. The prequels made $95 million domestically, and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” made even more.
So, it would be fair to say that the actual figure of the first weekend collection would be closer to $200 million, given that sequels tend to make more than their previous counterparts.
We’ll find out everything soon enough as the movie releases on May 6.
