"Captain Marvel" Scores Impressive Opening Weekend At Box Office

How much did Captain Marvel make at the Box Office? The latest Marvel offering continued the studio's domination overseas, with a $302 million opening weekend, putting the total worldwide gross over three days at a whopping $455 million.

Captain Marvel's box office performance went higher, further, faster than even its sky-high industry tracking estimates. It will be the biggest opening title since "Incredibles 2" launched with $182 million in June and should post the best start for a standalone superhero film since Marvel's "Black Panther" launched with $202 million in 2018.

The latest movie from Walt Disney Co.'s (NYSE: DIS) Marvel Comics division opened with North American weekend sales of $153 million USA and a global weekend take at $455 million US, the sixth-biggest worldwide opening for a film ever.

Captain Marvel opened with $153 million domestic.

The North Jersey Record reports theatre patrons at the AMC Theatre initially didn't seem to notice Larson, who was dressed in a Captain Marvel sweatsuit. And considering the movie's incredible performance compared to the standard solo debut like Ant-Man or Doctor Strange, it's clear that audiences are eager for more female-led stories.

Captain Marvel is now the third highest March debut of all time in the USA.

Captain Marvel also opened to a bigger first-weekend box office number than Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Suicide Squad, Venom, and every X-Men movie ever. Yet the pre-release of Captain Marvel has been rife with controversy, with "fake reviews" on both sides plaguing the film's critical integrity. "The allure and power of the superhero genre is as powerful as ever and just what blockbuster starved audiences have been waiting for in the form of a perfectly cast Brie Larson in this most powerful role".
