Captain Marvel has stunned the box office by bringing in $455 million in worldwide sales in one weekend. The movie grossed an estimated $153 million domestically. It is safe to say no one expected the worldwide total such a high number so quickly. It’s now just a matter of time until Captain Marvel passes $500 million on its way to the billion dollar mark.
No other movie was released against Captain Marvel this weekend. At least no movie that would be seen in a large number of theaters. This helped the latest Marvel flick become the sixth highest grossing movie worldwide of all time. The Marvel Juggernaut has stuck again. How to Train Your Dragon 3 sits comfortably with $435 million worldwide. It seems that the steam that was pushing Alita: Battle Angel to $400 million has given up. The movie now sits at $382 million; most of that came from the foreign market.
Weekend Top Three
3. Tyler Perrys a Madea Family Funeral $12 million
2. How to Train Your Dragon 3 $14.6 million
1. Captain Marvel $153 million
Next weekend, three movies will fighting for the number two spot. Honestly, it doesn’t look like Captain Marvel will loss the top spot for a while. Captive State, Five Feet Apart, and Wonder Park all come out next weekend. Jordan Peeled horror movie Us is slated to hit theaters on March 22nd. That is the movie that will take down Captain Marvel.
