We have reached the mid of August, and dozens of Hollywood Action Movies are being showcased at the box office every week. Unfortunately, most of them have received mixed commercial and critical responses. Given below is the list of top actions movies that have garnered billions of dollars so far.

Captain America: Civil War

Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Captain America: Civil War was released on May 6, 2016. So far, this film has made over $1 billion at the box-office. This action and adventure flick is based on the comic character of Captain America.

It is a sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, and 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

This Hollywood movie stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and Scarlett Johansson in the leading roles. The main plot of this film revolves around the allies-come-enemies: Captain America and Iron Man. This two-houron-screen journey is full of jaw-dropping scenes. I promise you would not feel tired while watching Captain America: Civil War.


Deadpool is another flick that needs no introduction. The film is based on a comic character. It is a creation of Marvel Studios, and was released in February 2016. Starring Ryan Reynolds (who is the co-producer of the movie), Morena Baccarin, and TJ Miller, this action film has been directed by Tim Miller.

Without any doubt, Deadpool has been a blockbuster of the year. It has set new records at the box-office.

The approximate budget of the producer was $58m. Fortunately, he has earned more than $780m until now. This superhero movieis one of the highest grossing Hollywood flicks of all time. The year is not over so we expect that this film would earn a lot more.

It would not be wrong to say that Deadpool has given the tough competition to Hollywood’s highest grosser Matrix Reloaded. This movie had faced many delays since its inception, and some even thought it will not survive at the box office. According to the filmmakers, a sequel is coming by 2018.

X-Men: Apocalypse

Directed by Bryan Singer, X-Men: Apocalypse was released in May 2016.

The movie has James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence in the leading roles. Made with a budget of $178m, this action film has garnered over $530m worldwide. Besides being one of the highest grossing films of 2016, it has received mixed reviews from the critics. The film is a co-production of 20th Century Fox.

Prior to its release, X-Men: Apocalypse had been the center of controversy due to one of its posters in which a male character (Apocalypse) irritates a woman (Mystique). The story of the movie is about a powerful mutant. He re-emerges after being attacked by his followers. He is ready to destroy the world. The army officers of X-Men unite to destroy this mutant.
