We’re now just a few weeks away from the release of Captain America: Civil War, which means that tracking has officially come online for the highly-anticipated film. Coming after 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which garnered praise from both critics and fans alike, it was already expected that Civil War would see a rise at the box office, especially as it follows last year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Still, the numbers being reported by The Hollywood Reporter are rather impressive, judging by the fact that The Winter Soldier only opened with $95 Million. Now, that’s no small feat on its own, but with Civil War currently tracking at $175 Million? $95 Million seems rather low.
Captain America: Civil War is tracking for a massive domestic opening of $175 million-plus at the North American box office, where it opens May 6.
Of course, with the addition of characters such as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland), it isn’t too surprising that the film is tracking this high. Still, as we’re still a few weeks out, it’s worth noting that this number will more than likely continue to rise. (Case in point: Guardians of the Galaxy was tracking at $60 Million, but ultimately opened to $94 Million.)
On the heel of this news, Marvel has also release two new TV spots teasing the teams in Civil War which you can watch below.

Captain America: Civil War will hit movie theaters on May 6th, 2016.
