Brie Larson surprises fans at 'Captain Marvel' screenings

Captain Marvel Box Office Blasts Off to $455 Million Worldwide

Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" introduces the Marvel Cinematic Universe's (MCU) first standalone, female-franchise title character, Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, essayed by Larson. The 21st instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe hauled in a staggering sum at the domestic box office.

The newest Marvel film, Captain Marvel, opened this past weekend and it enjoyed a massive, record-breaking debut at the box office.

"She definitely pushed us higher, further, faster", Disney distribution chief Cathleen Taff said of Captain Marvel.

The huge debut is likely to see the movie, which is the first woman-lead superhero pic from Marvel Studios and Disney, land in the top 20 domestic openings of all time.

Brie Larson stunned Captain Marvel fans by showing up to a number of screenings of the film during its opening weekend.

Watch out, folks: Android Q could arrive later today
Something to look forward to: The future of Android is shaping up as Android Q nears developer preview status. Android Q will nearly certainly be unveiled at the annual Google I/O conference in late Spring/early Summer.

As excitement for the Avengers: Infinity War follow-up continues to build to near-feverish levels, directors Anthony and Joe Russo have announced on Twitter that the movie is nearly finished, the brothers having now completed their cut of the film.

On Saturday night, Larson appeared at a movie theatre in Clifton, N.J., about 16 kilometres west of NY.

With the film locked, all that presumably remains now is to finalise the audio, while Marvel's various VFX departments will presumably continue to polish the special effects ahead of the film's roll out at the end of April. The last big hit was Warner Bros.'s "Aquaman" in late December, which opened with $68 million US and went on to gross $1.14 billion USA worldwide. "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".

"I'm very curious about how the story in "Captain Marvel" connects with "Avengers: Infinity War".
