Captain America tops UK box office

Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War is set to become the most successful film in the Marvel comics film franchise.

The movie debuted in the UK with box office takings of £19.12m, bigger than the openings of all three Iron Man films. Avengers Assemble opened to £15.78m box office while Age Of Ultron opened with £18.2m.

Batman V Superman debuted with £14.62m but went on to suffer streep drops, a fate unlikely to happen to Captain America as the film has received very positive reviews.

Meanwhile Disney's The Jungle Book movie is sitting in second place having taken £8.8m over the Bank Holiday weekend, making a total to date of £33.3m.
