A beef among superheroes over government regulation was too much for the competition at the weekend box office, as “Captain America: Civil War” again dominated theaters, according to final figures released Monday.

The film collected $72.6 million between Friday and Sunday, giving it a two-week haul of nearly $296 million, according to comScore.

The George Clooney-Julia Roberts reunion thriller “Money Monster” opened in third place with $14.8 million, followed by another debut, “The Darkness,” which earned $4.9 million.

Another film featuring Julia Roberts, “Mother’s Day,” placed fifth over the weekend with $3.3 million.
