"Captain Marvel" Scores Impressive Opening Weekend At Box Office

Producer Kevin Feige of AVENGERS INFINITY WAR took part today in the Walt Disney Studios live action presentation at Disney's D23 EXPO 2017 in Anaheim Calif

Captain Marvel completed its first weekend in theaters, and it pulled in some unbelievable numbers that surpassed box office predictions.

It did that and then some.

Fans going to see Captain Marvel at the AMC Clifton Commons 16 movie theater in Clifton, New Jersey, on Saturday night were surprised with a visit from Larson herself. As per trade analyst Girish Johar's tweet, Captain Marvel is likely to cross Dollars 500 million at the global box office. The latest Marvel offering also continued the studio's domination overseas, with a $302 million opening weekend, putting the total gross over three days at $455 million. Larson's Carol Danvers is in rarefied company among her Spandexed cohorts: "Captain Marvel" ranks as the second-biggest launch for a superhero movie worldwide, behind "Avengers: Infinity War".

A still from Captain Marvel. "It slams the door, in fact", said Jeff Bock, a box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations.

Two years later, "Captain Marvel" faced heated online attempts to troll the film, with its Rotten Tomatoes audience score hitting just 27 percent before the website changed its rules last month to prevent review comments before a movie's release. The film has opened in most countries except Japan. It is also the best IMAX March opening globally and delivered the second-best IMAX Marvel opening globally behind last year's Avengers: Infinity War.

More than likely Spider-Man: Far From Home will be the final Stan Lee cameo in a Marvel Studios movie.

Captain Marvel is now playing in theaters!

As excitement for the Avengers: Infinity War follow-up continues to build to near-feverish levels, directors Anthony and Joe Russo have announced on Twitter that the movie is nearly finished, the brothers having now completed their cut of the film.

'You see that in their track record.

By grossing $153 million in its domestic debut, "Captain Marvel" topped another female-led action franchise, 2012's "The Hunger Games" ($152.5 million), and slid in behind another: 2016's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" ($155 million). Before "Aquaman" swam along to show moviegoers that "Wonder Woman" wasn't a fluke, Princess Diana had to also show that Warner Bros.' DC Extended Universe could hold its own in the superhero genre. "Captain Marvel marks an incredible start to what is shaping up to be a very strong 2019 lineup and sets the stage for the highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame, which was shot entirely with IMAX cameras".

"Captain Marvel" scared away any new wide releases.
