Captain Marvel fights off online trolls with $455m opening weekend

Producer Kevin Feige of AVENGERS INFINITY WAR took part today in the Walt Disney Studios live action presentation at Disney's D23 EXPO 2017 in Anaheim Calif

The movie, starring Brie Larson as Danvers, took in $153 million U.S. in its first weekend in North American theatres. Add on the $302 million it took in overseas - the fifth-best overseas debut of all time - and the movie pulled in a mind-blowingly $456 million in its opening weekend.

Imagine, you're about to see one of the most anticipated films of the year, and the movie's star turns up to serve you popcorn.

"Thankfully Captain Marvel's superpowers extend to the box office realm and as expected provided a much-needed box office boost that the 2019 box office has been waiting for with a positively out of this world debut", Comscore's senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian says. It seems likely that many felt drawn to the film's societal benchmarks, being the first female-led Marvel movie, as well as the first to feature a female director. Average attendance has been above 70 percent, in some places as high as 90 percent. The real question is whether it has staying power at the box office.

"I don't know how it's any different". While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
