'Captain Marvel' rockets to historic $153M debut

Given the current trend, trade analysts predict that the Captain Marvel will draw curtains to its opening weekend in India at Rs 40 crore, at least.

The movie has brought in a total of $455 million total box office sales this weekend.

"Captain Marvel" Star Brie Larson needed according to their own words, the first cooling-off period, when she was offered the role of the super heroine.

Captain America: The First Avenger pulled in $65 million its opening weekend while Captain America: Winter Soldier raked in $95 million.

Captain Marvel is an extraterrestrial Free warrior (Brie Larson) who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. The race relations drama starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali has raked in $162.1 million internationally, including $44.2 million in China, more than double the domestic take. Not only is it the second largest opening for a superhero movie, but it also has the sixth best worldwide opening of all time. I think you see that in their box office. It's the first female-led superhero movie from Marvel, the master of big-screen comic-book films.

"Thankfully "Captain Marvel's" superpowers extend to the box office realm and as expected provided a much-needed box office boost that the 2019 box office has been waiting for with a positively out of this world debut", he said. But "Captain Marvel", which came in at the high end of the Walt Disney Co.'s expectations, ranks as one of Marvel's most successful character debuts. Directed by Patty Jenkins - who is hard at work on the sequel, "Wonder Woman 1984" - the movie had an opening weekend of $US103.2 million.

Despite internet trolls attempting to sabotage the film by posting awful reviews on Rotten Tomatoes before the movie's debut, Captain Marvel is soaring past its predicted $125 million opening with no signs of slowing down.

Internationally, the film has grossed an estimated $302 million, making it the fifth highest global opening weekend of all time and the second highest superhero opening weekend of all time, behind only "Avengers: Infinity War".
