Captain Marvel Shatters Records, Earning $455 Million Globally in Opening Weekend

Captain Marvel Shatters Records, Earning $455 Million Globally in Opening Weekend

"Captain Marvel" tells the story of how Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), her powers came.

Marvel's highest grossing movie to date for the USA box office is Black Panther, which rounded up an astounding $700 million in cinemas crosswise over North America.

In China, the film grossed US$10.4 million from 603 IMAX screens with IMAX representing more than 11% of the film's overall gross.

The movie is projected to earn between $156 million to $160 million during its debut weekend at the theatres - expecting this movie to be the biggest blockbuster so far in 2019. Robbins said that a film like "Captain Marvel" can attract viewers who don't typically watch superhero films, but want to be a part of the cultural moment.

Captain Marvel is the first solo female-led superhero film for Marvel and is taking cinemas by storm since its arrival last week. Brie Larson, 29, the star of the box office smash, dropped in to surprise some moviegoers. Perhaps the wisest course of action is to see the film and judge its merits for yourself.

Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson, is defying all odds and has already seen huge success despite only being out for a couple of short days.

Work harder, Kim tells hungry North Koreans
However, Trump told reporters that like the Singapore summit, Kim had committed to not conducting nuclear or ballistic missile tests.

Internationally, the estimated $302 million opening weekend from 53 territories makes it the fifth-highest overseas opening weekend of all time, second-highest superhero opening weekend of all time (behind only Avengers: Infinity War), and biggest for March. It also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn with Annette Benin and Jude Law.

Mississipi Grind helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are directing from a script written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve.

Of course, Captain Marvel's March opening also means it's facing very little competition.

Captain Marvel soared to the box office lead, raking in more than expected after middling reviews.

What's cooler than seeing Captain Marvel in theaters on opening weekend?
