Weekend box office Captain Marvel silences the haters

Captain Marvel has pummelled the global box office, scoring the sixth-biggest movie debut of all time.

Fellow Marvel star and Captain America actor Chris Evans seemed to be just as proud of Brie Larson as the rest of us, taking to Twitter to congratulate the Captain Marvel star on her opening weekend success. This is the second largest global opening of any superhero movie, second only to Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War.

Captain Marvel introduces audiences to the titular character in the form of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), a part human, part Kree warrior who retains flashes of her life on earth as she fights a member of the Kree strike team known as Starforce. Personally, I was expecting the film to perform closer to Ant-Man dollar levels and come in under $100 million, but the film is actually closer to Iron Man sequel numbers and should finish around $160 million.

The company says the the Marvel Cinematic Universe has now crossed $1B in IMAX box office.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, "Captain Marvel" is the first Marvel film to be directed by a woman and the first to feature a female superhero in the lead. This week's Captain Marvel continues the MCU's trend to end its films with short scenes that range from those that have vast implications for Avengers: Endgame to those that are more frivolous in nature.

Audiences in the USA and Canada for "Captain Marvel" were 55 per cent male and 45 per cent female. It doesn't spoil any major reveals from the movie but if you're planning on watching it, you'd best return after having seen it on the big screen.

The 21st installment of Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe propelled total domestic moviegoing to $210 million - almost $70 million above the same frame previous year.

"Higher, further, faster" is one of the taglines for Marvel Studios' recently released Captain Marvel.

"How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World", $14.7 million ($21.7 million international). Alita: Battle Angel, its closest competitor in terms of the type of audience it appeals to, opened multiple weeks ago.
