Captain Marvel Dominates The Box Office With Heroic Opening Weekend

It did that and then some.

Helmed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel has largely received a positive response from the audience as well as film critics.

The Oscar victor, 29, dropped by a movie theater to surprise moviegoers during a screening of her new Marvel movie. The site also initially reported the Chinese box office numbers incorrectly as they reported it to be the #2 MCU movie in China, but it actually came in at #3 (and now it is learned it is fading fast in China). Some fans were responding to the film's "liberal politics and diverse casting", as well as "Larson's call for more women and people of color in film", according to The Washington Post's Steven Zeitchik.

"Captain Marvel" appears to have saved the North American box office. At the end of Avengers: Infinity War, Nick Fury, played by actor Samuel L. Jackson, had sent a message to Captain Marvel just before himself fading in the dust.

Audiences in the US and Canada for "Captain Marvel" were 55 percent male and 45 percent female. In 2017, "Wonder Woman" paved the way in hinting to Hollywood that (shocker!) audiences will still turn out for a movie centered on a female protagonist.

It was very tough in the first half, but the team is growing, playing with more maturity to get through those kind of moments.

"Parking lot for Captain Marvel 90% empty today". If you didn't see the movie over the weekend, but plan to do so in the near future, you're best off skipping this video until after you've seen it. The U.K. generated $16.8 million, the third highest March launch for that market.

Last week's number one movie How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World dropped to second place, taking in another $14.7 million. That puts Captain Marvel in the company of movies like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Star Wars.

"Captain Marvel" scared away any new wide releases.

Interestingly, Captain Marvel will also be seen in the much-hyped conclusion film of the Avengers series- Avengers: Endgame, which is slated to hit the theaters on April 26. It made $1.3 million from 285 locations, including many IMAX screens.
