Box Office Update: Disney Says “Captain America” Took $181 Mil Weekend


Disney says “Civil War” rebounded on Saturday and will do well enough today–Sunday–that it made $181 million for the weekend. Revisions tomorrow.

The terribly reviewed “Mother’s Day” actually increased by 9% over last weekend. I guess  a lot of people said Let’s take mom. How bad can it be? And you know there’s no sex or violence or coherence.

The rest of the box office is pretty dull but the new “Barbershop” movie is inching towards $50 million. It couldn’t have cost that much. Go WB!

Sony waits for “Money Monster” next Friday like water in the desert. I’m rooting for them. We see it Thursday in Cannes.
