Here are box office results for all five of the top-grossing films for the weekend of May 6 – 8, 2016:
Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele bring the funny in their first major motion picture since making a name for themselves with their hilarious sketch comedy show. Two best friends pose as street hustlers to infiltrate a gang of thugs to retrieve their stolen kitten.
Two wicked sisters, Freya the Ice Queen (Emily Blunt) and the evil Ravenna (Charlize Theron), amass a seemingly indestructible army that threatens the kingdom. Only the skills of Eric the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and his lover Sara (Jessica Chastain) can save the land from these forces of darkness.
On the mother of all holidays, Mother’s Day, the lives of three different generations of moms intersect and collide. A single mom, a daughter searching for her real mom, a famous author and a single father.
Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a boy raised by wolves, is urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known when the tiger, Shere Khan (Idris Elba), promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Guided by a panther, Bagheera (Ben Kingsley), and a free-spirited bear, Baloo (Bill Murray), he embarks on a journey of self-discovery.
The actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage creating political pressure to install a system of accountability, which divides members of the team. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should be free to defend humanity, while Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) disagrees, as their debate sparks an all-out feud.
Mind you, that’s only the domestic box office, globally Captain America: Civil War has earned nearly $700 million, and will no doubt surpass $1 billion by the end of its theatrical run.
This is the fifth largest opening weekend of all-time, and the third largest opening for a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
