Captain America explodes at the Irish box office

Captain America Civil War is in cinemas now in Ireland and it might just be the best Marvel movie yet, and it's earning some serious attention at the box office.

The film debuted to a massive €17.9 million in Ireland and the UK at the weekend, and that was just part of the sum which catapulted it to more than $200 million (€175) around the world.

That's just outside the top 10 openers of all time globally, and a shade behind Age of Ultron from 2015. Of course this was basically an Avengers movie so interest was always going to be high but the strong word of mouth should also ensure it remains popular for weeks to come.

Civil War also hasn't launched in cinemas in the States yet, and will be arriving in more than 4000 screens from the 6th of May there, and it's sure to be a massive success for all concerned.

Speaking of which, Disney is riding high at the box office in Ireland, with a trio of films taking the top three spots - Captain America, The Jungle Book and Zootopia. We're very happy to report that the animated film is very close to earning 1 billion worldwide and is set to become one of the biggest films of all time.
