The Angry Birds Movie knocks Civil War from top of the box office


This header image will never die

Over the weekend we saw The Angry Birds Movie duke it out with Captain America: Civil War (#TeamBird v #TeamCap). #TeamCap believes in personal freedom and accountability in the face of a system that may be inherently corrupt and susceptible to influence, even though it also acknowledges the difficulties and consequences of foreign intervention. #TeamBird, by contrast, believes in being merely better than awful and making money.

The Angry Birds Movie won out, earning roughly $39 million. Captain America: Civil War was pushed to the two spot with $33.1 million. Rounding out the weekend, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising earned $21.7 million (#TeamNeighbors) and The Nice Guys took in $11.2 million (#TeamNice).

Even though Captain America 3 was dethroned, we should also note that Civil War has earned more than $1 billion worldwide in less than a month of release, with $347 million from domestic ticket sales alone. By comparison, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (#TeamDisappointment) has earned $870 million worldwide, with $328 million in domestic ticket sales.

While Captain America: Civil War being knocked down is notable, I only wrote this up to use the Sean Penn/El Chapo image again.
