Moviegoers gets to see ‘Captain Marvel’ in the flesh

Captain Marvel one of many superhero movies meant to empower and spark conversation

"Captain Marvel" soared higher, farther, faster at the box office this weekend. China led the way internationally with $89.3 million for the third highest MCU opening weekend ever in that territory behind "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Captain America: Civil War".

"Marvel Studios continues to have an incredible track record that remains unbroken", Disney executive Cathleen Taff said". Regardless, Captain Marvel is now the seventh highest opening for the MCU.

Ultimately, as anyone that watched Captain Marvel will know, there's only one thing that can save the universe. Overseas, the film grossed $22 million from 964 global IMAX screens, achieving the best worldwide Marvel IMAX opening record and second-highest IMAX worldwide opening Weekend.

That aside, Marvel's done wonders with "Captain Marvel", which could be their counterpart to DC's "Wonder Woman", an origin story that also offers fresh looks at familiar faces - and not in the way you'd expect, either!

Some fans claimed Larson's hero didn't smile enough, a charge she responded to with doctored pictures of previous male Marvel superheroes with awkwardly full grins. The movie also has yet to open in Japan. Rotten Tomatoes is now at an 80% critics score, with 57% of the audience stating they liked it.

No one gets up and simply walks out of a Marvel movie; we wait for the credits. Lego Movie 2: The Second Part takes fourth place with an estimated total of $3.8 million across 2,930 theaters. We see Steve Rogers and Black Widow observing several scenes that appear to be tracking the fallout of Thanos' snap. "You guys are so awesome to come opening weekend".

"Captain Marvel" star Brie Larson surprised fans when she showed up at a New Jersey movie theater at a showing on opening weekend.

Overall box office is down 21.3 percent year-to-date, according to Comscore, a slight rise from previous weeks boosted by the explosive success of Captain Marvel.

Actor Samuel L. Jackson backed Feige on this, explaining to IGN why Fury hasn't mentioned Captain Marvel before.

Audiences in the USA and Canada for "Captain Marvel" were 55 per cent male and 45 per cent female. 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.
