12 March 2019

Captain Marvel, the latest classic in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was predicted to smash box office records in its opening weekend.

Moviegoers in New Jersey got a surprise visit over the weekend from a super-hero.

By grossing $153 million in its domestic debut, "Captain Marvel" topped another female-led action franchise, 2012's "The Hunger Games" ($152.5 million), and slid in behind another: 2016's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" ($155 million). It sets a new worldwide mark for a film directed or co-directed by a woman.

Larson plays U.S. pilot turned Kree warrior Carol Danvers in the Marvel film, directed by Mississippi Grind filmmakers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Oh, and it had the sixth best worldwide opening of any film ever.

Having opened on March 8, International Women's Day, Disney and Marvel's superheroine film "Captain Marvel" took 596 million yuan, or 89 million USA dollars, in China.

"From China to North America and Germany, these results once again demonstrate IMAX's ability to help launch break-out global blockbusters and is a fantastic start to what is shaping up to be an incredibly strong year for the industry".
