Brie Larson dressed as Captain Marvel surprises moviegoers

Trade publication The Hollywood Reporter has broken down some of the stats, finding that Captain Marvel has had the seventh-biggest opening for a Marvel movie behind the Black Panther, Iron Man 3,Captain America: Civil War and the three Avengers films.

Oscar victor Brie Larson delivered a superhero-sized jolt to theaters with her portrayal of the comic-book character "Captain Marvel", waking up fans of blockbuster movies from their long winter slumber.

It's no coincidence that the two solo movies set prior to, and released in-between, Avengers Infinity War and Avengers Endgame were Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel. She said she "loved it, Kitty was hilarious".

Mississipi Grind helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have directed from a script written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve. It also comes almost two years after "Wonder Woman", released by Disney-Marvel rivals Warner Bros. and DC, raised the bar for female-led comic book adaptations, scoring $103 million in its domestic opening weekend. The movie will stand behind Black Panther, which opened to $200 million past year.

"Higher, further, faster" is one of the taglines for Marvel Studios' recently released Captain Marvel.

It's six years before Captain Marvel learns the truth, and discovers that the shape-shifting Skrulls she is now fighting are really the good guys, while the Krees are the bad guys.

On Saturday, I ventured to my local movie theater to see Captain Marvel with my brother and his kids, with the youngest being five.

What does the Captain Marvel post-credit scene mean? "The allure and power of the superhero genre is as powerful as ever and just what blockbuster starved audiences have been waiting for in the form of a perfectly cast Brie Larson in this most powerful role". "You see that in their track record. And I think you see that in the broadening of their fan base".

CinemaScore, which relies on interviews with audience members coming out of theatres, found crowds very much liked "Captain Marvel", giving it an A rating. Critic reviews have been largely positive.

Superhero fans in North Jersey got an ultimate surprise while watching "Captain Marvel" opening weekend, as the title actress herself visited a theater. "Captain Marvel" single-handedly chopped nearly 5 per cent off that figure with a weekend that overall was up 47 per cent from the same a year ago.

"The box office year of 2019 officially started this weekend", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore.

"We are going to cast the best Eternals cast that we can and when we're ready to announce it we promise you we will".
