Captain Marvel Shoots for the Stars at the Weekend Box Office!

Overseas Captain Marvel also managed to astonish with $302 million, giving the film the fifth highest global opening weekend of all-time and the sixth largest worldwide debut ever, for an estimated total of $455 million all-in.

This weekend saw Captain Marvel claim the number one spot at the U.S. box office, while The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part hung on to fourth place. "You guys are so awesome to come opening weekend".

Movie industry executives in the past dismissed movies about women and people of color- traditionally underrepresented in mainstream Hollywood works - perpetuating the myth that they don't succeed at the box office.

That's exactly what happened for cinema-goers about to watch Captain Marvel in New Jersey, when Carol Danvers herself, Brie Larson, turned up for a surprise visit on Saturday. With a budget of $152 million, the film has already recouped, and looks to be one of the year's most profitable flicks thus far.

Captain Marvel delivered an estimated $36 million on 1377 IMAX screens worldwide to become the fifth-biggest IMAX opening of all time and the first non-sequel to crack the top five IMAX films of all time.

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.

The domestic haul of $153 million represents the third-biggest debut for a movie in March in the history of film, only behind Beauty and the Beast ($174.7 million) and Batman v. Superman ($166 million). Larson said. "No, I'm not ..." I want to go out of my way to connect the dots. Now we're just doing what's natural.

With Captain Marvel now in theaters, I was lucky enough to get a little time to chat with Jackson.

Captain Marvel: 1, trolls: 0.
