In the meantime, a clear blockbuster is waiting in the wings, as the long-anticipated Captain America: Civil War opened in some foreign theaters and earned a 93 percent approval rating from review-surveyors at Rotten Tomatoes (RT).

But nobody can scoff at The Jungle Book, which has earned $684 million total, including $432.7 million in foreign theaters.
