War has always been big business. Especially when it translates to film. Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War has conquered both audiences and critics, debuting to $179.1 million—the fifth-biggest domestic opening of all time—and earning a 90% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film is the highest-grossing film of 2016 domestically, internationally and globally, earning more than $1.14 billion at the worldwide box office. Oprah may have more of the green stuff in her deep pockets, but the news about Captain America: Civil War is marvelous . . . the flick also continues Marvel Studios’ winning streak as the 13th consecutive film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to debut at No. #1 at the domestic box office.
