The 21st film in the MCU franchise has scored the sixth biggest global debut ever with a massive worldwide gross of $456.3 million, surpassing all the pre-release projections of popular Hollywood trade portals. It’s only behind the biggest worldwide opening launches of films such as Avengers: Infinity War ($640.5 million), The Fate of the Furious ($541.9 million), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($529 million), Jurassic World ($525.5 million), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($483.2 million).
The Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck directed film amassed an excellent domestic total of $153 million, which makes it the seventh biggest MCU launch stateside, only behind Infinity War, The Avengers, Black Panther, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War and Iron Man 3.
Trade sources in China suggest that Captain Marvel may settle for $150 million lifetime total and will surge past the 1 billion yuan mark in local currency, a crucial feat which previous solo MCU films such as Black Panther (662 million yuan) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (831 million yuan) missed. Captain America: Civil War is the only solo superhero film from MCU with more than 1 billion yuan in theatrical sales in the world’s second-largest movie market.Share this to your,
