New movies in theaters this week include – guess what? – just one! Not one other brave little movie wanted to go up against “Captain America: Civil War” at the box office, so it reigns supreme in theaters this week. Let’s take a closer look at the newest Marvel superhero movie.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
Rated PG -13 for extended sequences of violence, action and mayhem | In Theaters 5/6 (2D, 3D, IMAX) | Ok for Kids 13+ | Disney/Marvel | Reel Preview: 4 of 5 Reels
This newest installment in the popular Marvel franchise finds Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team.
The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps. One is led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference. The other follows Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey, Jr.) surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, this movie also stars Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie and Jeremy Renner.
