Civil War has opened to critical and commercial success and the U.S. box office has continued the success that the movie has enjoyed internationally.

The movie sees Anthony and Joe Russo back in the director's chair for their second Marvel movie - their first was Captain America: The Winter Solider two years ago.

Civil War easily toppled The Jungle Book from the number one spot this weekend. Worldwide, the latest Marvel film has already grossed over $678 million and is currently the fifth highest grossing film of the year. However, that will change over the coming weeks.

The Jungle Book slipped just a single place to number two this week as it continues to perform well globally. So far, the movie has grossed over $776 million worldwide and is the third highest grossing film of the year.

Mother's Day was the only film on the up this week as the Garry Marshall directed film jumped up one place from four to this week's number three.

The Huntsman: Winter's War and Keanu both fell two places from two and three to this week's four and five.

Barbershop: The Next Cut and Zootropolis were both down one at six and seven. But there was no move for comedy The Boss, staying put at number eight.

Animation film Ratchet & Clank was a two place faller at number nine while Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was down one to round off this week's top ten.
