'Angry Birds' #1 Domestically, 'Captain America' Tops $1 Billion and It's 'Apocalypse' Overseas.

The Angry Birds Movie took the number one spot at the domestic box office this weekend, pushing two-time champion, Captain America: Civil War, to second place as it begins its third week in release.

Civil War's weekend, however, wasn't only about the domestic box office as it has now become the first 2016 release to cross $1 billion worldwide, doing so in just 24 days of global release. The weekend's two other new wide releases, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and The Nice Guys, finished in third and fourth position respectively.

Also, X-Men: Apocalypse launched overseas one week ahead of its domestic debut and hauled in over $100 million.
