Brie Larson's Captain Marvel Conquers Trolls with Historic $455 Million Opening Weekend

Brie Larson's Captain Marvel Conquers Trolls with Historic $455 Million Opening Weekend”

"Captain Marvel" performed well above studio projections, which had pegged the film at $125 million.

Captain Marvel is already skyrocketing up the box office charts after its first full day in theaters on Friday.

Larson noted last month how movies that are landmarks for representation, like "Captain Marvel", often come with the weight of huge expectations, with a lot riding on their successes or failures.

The total globally is $455 million.

Captain Marvel, the Marvel Studios movie featuring Carol Danvers, has become one of the biggest blockbusters ever led by a woman.

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).

Directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, the film stars Brie Larson in the title role. "I hope it turns out great", said an audience member.

Oh, there will plenty of more chances for Brie to bust out the Captain Marvel tracksuit for more surprise appearances. "I'm looking forward to seeing the movie".

Captain Marvel is now the third highest March debut of all time in the USA.

"Captain Marvel" also cemented itself in the history books, and was the fifth highest worldwide opening weekend of all time, and the second highest for a superhero movie.

It's been a Marvel-ous weekend for the latest superhero movie as "Captain Marvel" soared to the top of the weekend box office with a massive $153-million domestic opening.

Besides its excellent box office performance, the movie received a decent, seven out of ten, score on Douban.com, China's online film rating website, and an 80 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
