Now Playing: Captain America: Civil War Spoiler-Free Review

We will report back later this weekend when Saturday and Sunday numbers are in.

Civil War had a reported production budget of $250 million. If it can indeed make at least $175 million this weekend, the movie will become the fifth-highest US opening, pushing Iron Man 3 ($174.1 million) down to No. 6. It would still be behind The Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191.3 million), The Avengers ($207.4 million), Jurassic World ($208.8 million), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($247.9 million)--via Box Office Mojo.

The US, of course, is just one market for Civil War. Internationally, the movie, which opened more a week ago, has already passed $300 million. It comes to additional international markets such as China, Argentina, and Russia later this weekend. By Sunday night, the movie could reach $600 million worldwide.
