Captain America: Civil War Could Open to $200 Million by Sunday

Because Captain America: Civil War is the most anticipated Marvel film to date, the film is already expected to hit the $200 million mark by the end of this week.

On Friday, the film will have been released in about 63 percent of its total foreign territory, meaning that by the time the movie hits the U.S. on May 6, it would have already gotten massive blockbuster sales.

By retrospect, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Civil War's predecessor, Avengers: Age of Ultron, opened to $212 million internationally. This means Civil War could finish ahead of Age of Ultron if its performance goes up even slightly higher than expected. Meanwhile, Captain America: The Winter Soldier only opened to $78 million internationally, so Civil War will clearly trump those numbers.

Aside from this numbers, let's not forget that the film's projected ticket sales in North America is $175 million, while its opening weekend in China could be worth much more. It's entirely possible for Captain America: Civil War to rake in $500,000 in ticket sales during the first weekend of global release.

All these numbers aren't really a surprise, since critics clearly loved the film. It's also known that the film will open big. The only problem would be how to keep the film in theaters.

Captain America: Civil War opens in the U.S. on May 6.
