Adjust Comment Print

And if we're talking about where its box office ranks in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel scored the MCU's seventh-biggest opening behind Iron Man 3 ($174 million), Captain America: Civil War ($179 million), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191 million), Black Panther ($202 million), The Avengers ($207 million), and Avengers: Infinity War ($258 million). The Marvel Studios film took in $153 million domestically on its opening weekend, blowing past initial estimates that Captain Marvel would open to $135 million.

This weekend saw Captain Marvel claim the number one spot at the USA box office, while The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part hung on to fourth place.

At least a dozen vfx companies worked on the Disney/Marvel picture: Industrial Light & Magic, Trixter, Framestore, Animal Logic, Lola Visual Effects, Scanline VFX, Rising Sun Pictures, Luma Pictures, Digital Domain, Rise, Cantina, and SSVFX.

"'Captain Marvel" shuts the door on that conversation. "Captain Marvel" was helmed by the filmmaking team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who previously made the indies "Half Nelson" and "Mississippi Grind".

Actress Brie Larson, star of "Captain Marvel", appeared at a movie theatre Saturday night in Clifton, New Jersey, about 10 miles (16 kilometres) west of NY.

This makes it the fifth highest global opening weekend of all time and the second highest superhero opening weekend of all time - with Avengers: Infinity War taking the top spot at an opening of $640m. Captain Marvel continues IMAX's strong box office momentum in China, with its 2019 year-to-date box office in the mainland market now up approximately 60.7% over 2018.

It wasn't just young women who turned out to see the on-screen adventures of Carol Danvers, the Air Force pilot who becomes an intergalactic hero.

As is sadly becoming increasingly common with female- or minority-led films, particularly superhero films, Captain Marvel faced an organized campaign by online trolls to dissuade people from seeing the film by leaving poor audience reviews for it on Rotten Tomatoes before it was even released in theaters. Brie Larson, 29, the star of the box office smash, dropped in to surprise some moviegoers.
