‘Civil War’ Opens No. 1 At Weekend Box Office

Civil War

Alex Garland‘s dystopian action movie Civil War conquered the domestic box office this weekend with $25.7 million, ahead of expectations and scoring A24’s biggest opening ever. The $50 million movie about a divided America is a big swing for A24 as it tries to produce bigger movies, marking its most expensive production to date.

Despite the box office win, moviegoers only gave it a B- CinemaScore. PostTrack exit polls were mixed.

The top 12 movies of the weekend, as of Sunday, April 14, are as follows:
