Additionally, Captain Marvel's opening-weekend box office performance is better than the opening weekends for Iron Man 1 and 2, the first two Captain America movies, all the Thor films, Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and 2, and every Spider-Man movie ever released.
Moviegoers in New Jersey got a surprise visit over the weekend from a superhero. The Marvel Studios film took in $153 million domestically on its opening weekend, blowing past initial estimates that Captain Marvel would open to $135 million. Some were more apparent than others, but unless you are incredibly familiar with the title character and the decades-long history of Marvel, there is a good change that you missed dozens of secrets that the filmmakers hid in the movie. Disney's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" has the 17th-highest launch frame with $155.1 million in 2016. That's also the second-largest global opening ever for a Marvel Studios film, behind only last year's Avengers: Infinity War.
On Saturday night, Larson appeared at a movie theatre in Clifton, N.J., about 16 kilometres west of NY.
The supporting cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Annette Bening, Ben Mendelsohn and Lashana Lynch.
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. The North American tally surpasses those suggested by analysts by a fair margin, and the Chinese opening brought in an additional $89 million. According to Box Office Mojo, this makes Captain Marvel the third-highest March opening of all time, behind Batman v Superman ($166 million) and Beauty and the Beast ($174 million).
