Marvel unleash their first blockbuster of the year to the delight of fans and like every year for the last few years it smashed into the top of the UK box office.

Captain American Civil War is the biggest assemble of Marvel superhero characters outside of an Avengers movie and takes over at the top with a weekend take just shy of £20 million.

Compared to the previous Marvel films this is fairly normal but the is by far the highest grossing Captain America movie.

Projection for the movie should be high, but Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice gave a wake up call last month as to how a superhero movie can perform below average.

The Jungle Book falls down to number 2 this week on its 3rd week of release with £5.7 million, its total is £33.2 million to date.

Highest total grossing movie on the box office is Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice which has taken £36.5 million to date.
