According to ScreenRant, Alex Garland’s dystopian thriller Civil War has kicked off its theatrical run with a bang, shattering A24’s box office records with an impressive $2.9 million haul from Thursday night previews. This impressive figure surpasses the previous record held by Ari Aster’s 2018 horror hit Hereditary, which earned $1.3 million in previews.

Backed by positive reviews and strong audience interest, “Civil War” is now expected to make at least $20 million during its opening weekend. If this projection holds true, the film will once again break A24’s opening weekend record, currently held by “Hereditary” with a $13.6 million debut.

Civil War represents a significant milestone for A24, as the studio’s most expensive production to date with a budget of around $50 million, not including marketing costs. With theaters typically taking around half of a movie’s box office earnings, the film’s success is crucial for the indie studio as it continues to expand its reach beyond low-budget offerings.

While the strong preview numbers and projected opening weekend are promising signs, the film’s long-term success will depend heavily on positive word-of-mouth and continued positive reviews. Starring Kirsten Dunst, Wagner Moura, and Cailee Spaeny, the film has received praise from critics for its chilling portrayal of a nation at war with itself and its lead performances.
