Looks like we have a new No.1 movie at the North American box office this past weekend!
- “Captain America: Civil War” swoops in at the No. 1 spot this weekend, making $179 million in it’s debut weekend.
The Disney film stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr., and is the second instalment of the Captain America franchise.
The film follows the franchise of the “Avengers” as well. The film follows a political interference in the Avengers’ activities causing a rift between former allies Captain America (Evans) and Iron Man (Downey Jr.)
- In second place, “The Jungle Book.”
This Disney film has been No.1 for the past couple weeks, earning a whopping $287 million in it’s first month.
This weekend the film made $24 million in the box office. The film stars Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong’o.
- “Mother’s Day” rounds out the third spot this week, probably due to Mother’s Day on Sunday.
Though the film has been a flop so far (it was fourth last weekend, if you remember), according to multiple critics, the Open Road film made $11.9 million this weekend.
The rom-com stars Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, and Kate Hudson.
Other films making the top 10 include, “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” with Chris Hemsworth and Emily Blunt in fourth, “Keanu” in fifth, “Zootopia” makes the sixth spot, Ice Cube’s “Barbershop: The Next Cut” in seventh and Melissa McCarthy’s “The Boss” in eighth.
