Captain Marvel Powers Up For A Second Weekend Of Box Office Heroics

Posted by at 12:49 pm on March 14, 2019

Disney’s Captain Marvel is looking to go higher, further, faster during its second weekend in theaters.

The superhero tentpole starring Brie Larson, which crossed $500 million in ticket sales worldwide in under a week, will easily dominate domestic box office charts again. Written and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel could generate another $70 million to $85 million in its sophomore outing if the blockbuster sees a decline similar to its superhero universe brethren like Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. As of Tuesday, it has now grossed $524 million globally, including a mighty $100 million in China.

Captain Marvel, the studio’s first comic-book adventure to spotlight a female superhero, injected a much-needed boost into an otherwise sluggish domestic market. Over the weekend, it posted a massive $153 million debut in North America, by far the biggest opening weekend of the year. Captain Marvel also secured the sixth-biggest global launch ever ($455 million) when it opened in all markets sans Japan. Combined, the 21 titles that make up Marvel’s Cinematic Universe have surpassed $18 billion in ticket sales worldwide.
