Captain Marvel Eyeing Massive Opening That Could Be On Par With Wonder Woman

Captain Marvel is set to have a huge opening.

85 Comments

Marvel's next big superhero film, Captain Marvel, hits theatres in March, and it's expected to make a lot of money. Variety reports that early tracking estimates peg the movie at bringing in around $100 million for its opening in the US and Canada. If word of mouth stays strong and grows more positive still, the opening-weekend figure could balloon to $120 million or more, the report said.

If Captain Marvel makes around $100 million for its opening, that would put it in line with another major comic book movie featuring a female hero for the first time: Wonder Woman. That film made $103 million in the domestic market for its opening weekend. It went on to bank around $412 million during its domestic run and $821 million worldwide.

Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel. The film also stars Jude Law, Samuel L. Jakcosn, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, and Ben Mendelsohn. There's also Goose the cat

Larson will play Captain Marvel again in April's Avengers: Endgame. She could play a big role in the film, as the end-credits sequence of Avengers: Infinity War saw Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury reached out to Captain Marvel to save the world. Captain Marvel features our MCU introduction to the Skrulls.

In other news, here's a video of Larson pushing a 5,000-pound truck to train for Captain Marvel. You can watch the latest TV trailer for Captain Marvel in the video embed above.

This could end up being one of Marvel's "lesser" successes if they can't fix the marketing. I'm assuming there's a great movie here-- the MCU deserves a little faith but everything they've shown so far has been generic. The dialogue is straight out of a DC movie. Even the name sounds generic to me. As someone who's never read the comics, I have no sense of who she is, other than being vanilla powerful. It's a shame she couldn't make a good impression in Avengers first and be explained after that.

@HardStomp: PS Wonder Woman was a remarkable moment for certain moviegoers that's not about to be reproduced.

Ok , I have to say something here. The way these ticket sale predictions have been twisted to make it look positive is flabbergasting.

It was only a month ago that the media were reporting predictions of between 140 - 180 million for the opening weekend.

The new report says it could be as low as 80 million now. Just a quick google search will show you the figures.

Thats around a 50% drop. But yet this article spins it as being something worth praising.

@shamefulswine: Or, here's a thought, the $140m+ prediction was just a stupid one, and the lower ones are simply more realistic? Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange were the last two MCU films with lead characters who hadn't appeared in a previous film, and they had debuts of $94m and $85m respectively.

@bigdavex: It's only stupid because it doesn't fit your narrative.

Both figures have beem done by an independant company that specializes in ticket predictions.

The same media outlets that are shouting about this, did the same before. Its all there for anybody to see as it was only a few weeks ago.

They were more than happy to accept those predictions. But now you say they were stupid.

@shamefulswine: Sorry, what "narrative" do you claim I'm pushing? Because all I said was that MCU movies with lead characters that haven't debuted in previous movies have typically earned $100m or slightly less in their opening weekends - and if anything that's being slightly generous, seeing how the first Ant-Man movie (which I forgot about when I made my previous post) only had a $57m opening weekend.

Ticket prices get higher each year, so of course it'll likely set box-office records. I think film success should be judged more on tickets sold than overall revenue.

@DukeGallison: If that's the concern, you should check out BoxOfficeMojo's sales comparisons adjusted for inflation. They base that not on straight currency inflation but on total domestic ticket sales.

I’m only watching this to keep up with the MCU. Not a fan of Brie Larson...she seems so devoid of character in her roles, just like like the dude that played Luke Cage.

So, they're predicting a slightly better opening than Doctor Strange, which was the last MCU film to feature a lead character that hadn't appeared in a previous film... and people are saying this would somehow be a massive failure? Does not compute.

@bigdavex: its the SJWs hoping it fails for whatever reason. Its okay tho because they only represent .0001% of the population.

I see it as the next chapter of Marvels awesome job theyve done creating the best cinematic achievement of all time. And Im a huge fan of Star Wars so thats a pretty bold statement lol.

@bigdavex: Anyone who says that any of these MCU movies will be a massive failure has no idea what they are talking about. At this time they are past the point of risk. The intrinsic audience is large enough to sustain their films as long as they don't balloon their budgets. Considering they have made twenty films while keeping their budgets under control, all of their movies have the same producer, and they operate independently within Disney, there is no reason to believe any movie will be a massive failure.

Could this change in the future? Sure. We saw this with other series like with Solo. But given their pedigree, we would need to see something change before this failure could happen. If they had a film with a highly negative audience response, that wouldn't be the film that commercially failed. But it could open the gates for a future failure. Also, the super-hero trend could die out, but that won't be sudden. We will see a downward trend before we reach the point of risk.

Captain Marvel is in a strange place for the Marvel movies. It's a character nobody other than hardcore comic nerds know. When the last couple Marvel movies have seen great success breaking the template of "first movie must be bland origin movie", this seems to be going back to that old format which actually reduces my expectations. I would much rather they just went Black Panther/Homecoming and just jump right into the character. Also, I've gone back and forth wondering if Captain Marvel coming out a month before End Game is going to help or hurt the movie. Even the trailers and commercials have been all over the place tone-wise which makes me wonder if they don't really know themselves how to best promote this movie. I hope it does well because I'd love to see a serious Captain Marvel movie that doesn't waste time on backstory and origins. In fact, I hope any future Marvel movie does everything it can to emulate Black Panther/Homecoming and just skip that old format completely.

So...was hyped for this movie, but Brie's discriminatory behavior has really poured water on my hype. I understand her wanting more diversity in movie critics, but she could have just done more interviews and specifically included more diverse movie critics, instead she took a stance of excluding people based on their race and gender. Those people are trying to make a living like everyone else. She could have lifted up other movie critics without using outright discrimination to bring attention to what she's trying to do. She's perpetuating the problem she's trying to solve.

@pongman75: I haven't gotten very far in, but I've really enjoyed it. Mechanically it feels great. Combat is smooth and quick, with lots of options. Story-wise, it feels a little weird with the absence of most the worlds that are series staples and Final Fantasy elements have been stripped down to Easter eggs mostly. Like I said though, I've really enjoyed it so far, it just feels...different.

@lionheartssj1: I was wondering about the FF content. Theres probably enough newer content to take its place. Not sure how some players would feel if they put too much FF in it instead of exploring new arcs. I bet you wont be disappointed tho.

@lionheartssj1: Here we go. Can't have a movie these days without someone crying reverse discrimination. Seriously dude, none of that has anything to do with the movie. And since you have no clue about anything behind this story, you are just being a sucker falling for the hate machine that is out there right now that only wants to crap on anything that tries to be/do something different.

@ZIMdoom: Calm down. I'm pointing out her rhetoric contradictory to the point she's trying to make; from her own mouth. [Variety] I read what she said. When you say movies aren't made for specific demographics of people, all that does is drive a wedge between people. It's great that she's reaching out to the underrepresented critics. All I'm saying is you can't bring people together by telling them the things they enjoy aren't also made for you because of how they were born and expect them to say, 'you're right, my thoughts are irrelevant because of my race/gender, that's cool!' That's not the hate machine talking, that was her!

As for it having anything to do with the movie, it's inextricably tied to the movie. The content of the movie remains to be seen, but the way the movie is sold to people is part of the package. It isn't the Pepsi challenge, you don't sit down in a theater wondering what movie you're going to see. Especially for movies in a franchise like this where it is so ingrained in pop culture. A lot of people are excited to see it, I still am do a certain degree.

I'm just disappointed that we can't have a discussion on what she said, or even be disappointed in the way she said it without people flippantly passing it off as "reverse discrimination". Also, I apologize in advance for being a little pedantic, but reverse discrimination implies discrimination only happens in one direction which is impossible by definition.

@lionheartssj1: Don't worry. I'm very calm. I just can't sit quietly anymore as people continuously put forward illogical and ridiculous opinions like you did on literally every single movie/game/tv show/comic/story that comes out that dares to not focus on straight white dudes. And for the record, I'm a straight white dude myself. Where I differ is I don't feel like someone trying to promote diversity is an attack or slight against me. Propping up one thing doesn't automatically putting down something else. It just doesn't. There is room for everything and everyone but it is also clear to me that some people are disadvantaged and may need to try and get more attention for themselves and help themselves out. That doesn't mean the rest of us who aren't of that gender/orientation/race/etc are losing. That just isn't a logical opinion to take and I really hope people grow up and start to understand that. Because I also honestly feel that most people who express opinions like you have do so because they are being exploited by certain people (now most commonly on youtube but also on reddit) who want to harness insecurity and naivety for their own dangerous and bad purposes. Since I already mentioned youtube, in the interests of balance, go and search Innueno Studio and "Why are you so angry". It is long but perfectly captures this problem in our society. But to summarize...nothing Brie Larson has done or said in promoting this movie, in any way, takes away from straight white men. Making a choice to help person A, doesn't automatically mean Person B is being hurt or attacked or disenfranchised. That's not how things work. You are free to believe otherwise and I have no issues having this discussion so long as I feel you are arguing in good faith. Many aren't (including others in this thread).

@ZIMdoom: Dude it has nothing to do with it being a chick flick, it has to do with brie larsons disgusting rhetoric towards a huge portion of her audience.

Ima "straight white dude" and love tomb raider, played claire in resident evil and am completely fine with action roles for women (though they aren't believable in my opinion)

The fact she can say "i dont want white males to see my my movie" and not be lambasted out of a job is mind boggling. If she would have said "i want my press junket to have less blacks" would you be up in arms over that?

More and more - like you just did above - it's becoming OK to crap on the straight white male, but say anything about any other race and it's the end times.

@@atomaweapon: No. You are wrong. Not only wrong but you are being conned to serving a problematic political purpose and don't even know it. Of course, you will disagree and I'm not going to convince you otherwise online on an anonymous chat forum. So I'm not going to waste too much time on it. But your post here shows how little or poorly you have actually thought about an analyzed this issue. Which tells me you are giving me a feelings over facts argument. You have no facts to back up your beliefs, so are all about the feels right now on this issue. You FEEL like this is crapping on you. You FEEL it is about you. You FEEL is somehow affects you or the group you identify with (oh oh, identity politics!).

Here are the actual facts. Just take two seconds to google this story and actually read the ACTUAL articles. Not the anti-sjw youtube s*** the algorithm will likely pull up for you based on your past search/view history. The actual news story. At no point did she say "I don't want white males to see my movie". NEVER happened...yet you quoted it as if she did. At no point did she say she wants less white men at her press junket either. What she said was she was sick of ALL her press junkets for ALL her movies being practically all white men when she knows that isn't representative of the actual profession. So she asked the companies who send these interviewers why they aren't giving more work to all their staff and to encourage them to think about sending people who weren't all just white men.

While you may read that and think, 'That's not fair! I can't just go around and complain about there being too many black people in things even though I would like too....so why can she say there are too many white men?" That isn't the facts of the situation. That's your feelings. The issue is that the number of white men being sent to junkets is not representative of the diversity of the people who actually do the job. So sending, say, 95% white men when only 65% of the profession is currently white men...you are arguably discriminating against that 35% and favoring the white males disproportionately. All she did was ask the question of why...and that was enough to throw a certain group of people into a fit of rage and crying about "boo hoo, poor white men are being crapped on." Literally nobody has done that, certainly not in this story...but you believe it to be true because, against, you are putting your feelings before the facts. I would argue you actually have no clue what the facts are and simply saw a few youtube stories from questionable sources and swallowed it hook, line and sinker.

But please. Tell me how and where I'm wrong about any of this? Hell, even that 65% number is accurate because I cared enough about facts over feelings to google what the breakdown was for that job.

@ZIMdoom: jesus christ dude do you think im going to read 5 paragraphs of you on your soap box talking about one form of racism is cool?

it's fine if you want to say "no more whites" in movies, but then it should also be fine for me to say "im tired of blacks and women in movies" and we can all be hateful evenly.

@ZIMdoom: You can take my opinion as about as seriously as im taking yours.

My ultimate point is: Replace anything in any article mentioning "white men" and if it's ok in your mind to say "black" instead, then we don't have anything to argue about.

@atomaweapon: Uhm...you realize that isn't actually how words or points or context works right? You realize that if a young black director makes a movie about his experience growing up in a poor neighborhood as part of a gang, and 99% of the press junket is middle-aged white guys trying to say why the movie doesn't connect with them...that' totally different than just taking any movie and saying "black people shouldn't review this" right?

Do you not see how these are two totally different things? There is a different between calling for more diversity in movies/reviews, calling for more reviews that are able to understand/relate to the core/target audience...and just saying saying "X shouldn't watch or review this movie"?

If the answer is no, you honestly don't see the difference then I can't help you. Maybe go outside once in a while and have an honest conversation with someone outside your bubble.

@ZIMdoom: that is a completely utterly separate point than saying "i wish less whites reviewed my movie. I wanna talk to less white people when doing press junkets". Brie is just one example of the constant assault on the straight white male. Look at the gillete commercial, every single white male was a dumb sexist idiot, while every single positive trait of men was portrayed by a black man. For one, Brie isn't black. There have been hundreds, thousands of movies with black focused casts that have done press junkets just fine. Tyler Perry movies have made millions, maybe billions.

Secondly Captain Marverl is hardly a black focused show about growing up in the ghetto. I mean look at black panther, all black cast with a white male villian - made millions. Marvel needs to appeal to all demos, so talking shet about one just isn't smart.

This thinking in the last 7ish years is so deeply ingrained in a our sub culture now.

Again - you glossed over this - if brie had said " I want less blacks reviewing my movie and going to my press junkets. I want to talk to less black people as a whole", would you still be rallying and arguing? Id bet no.

@ZIMdoom: I checked out the youtube video you suggested, but didn't realize that was a 6 part-er, so I may have to get back to you on that one.

Just to make sure we're not talking around each other. You realize I'm not saying her propping up underrepresented critics is a bad thing? I don't think her reaching out to get them interviews is bad at all, quite good, actually and I certainly don't think the act of doing so has oppressed white males. My problem was in the rhetoric explaining her actions. I found it counter inclusive to say 'this movie isn't made for such and such person'. I don't think that is a good thing to say no matter what demographic says it about any other demographic. Not good now or if any roles were reversed. Probably should have tried to say that better in my original post as not to add to the discourse.

@lionheartssj1: I tried to quickly google Brie Larson and claims that the movie isn't made for white men and couldn't find anything. Can you please link me to evidence she made such a claim so I can review it? And I'm looking for a direct claim made by Larson or someone directly connected to the movie that "this movie isn't made for" such and such a person. Because I couldn't find any such link.

I would encourage you to take the time to watch all the videos although I admit it is lengthy. It provides an excellent examination and analysis of this very problem. People getting upset and angry over things that seem to have no connection to reality. They just FEEL they've been slighted. And how those feelings are easily coopted by groups who truly only care about crapping on others and spreading victimhood to do so, all while claiming they care about equality and rights and fairness and games/movies/etc.

@ZIMdoom:She says it in the video of the speech she gave on the Variety link I embedded before. Here's some more of the transcript from [USAToday] that includes a little more, but the video on Variety has most of her speech. However, there is a weird cut in the middle of that video though where part of the speech was taken out, so I don't know what was said then.

I'll have to check out those youtube vids when I can watch them all the way through, but I will.

@atomaweapon: Thanks for the link. Did you actually bother to read any of these stories or did you just fall for clickbait headlines? Assuming you read them, did you actually stop and think about it or just have a knee jerk reaction and put your feelings before facts?

@ZIMdoom:

‘About a year ago, I started paying attention to what my press days looked like and the critics reviewing movies, and noticed it appeared to be overwhelmingly white male. When I talked to the facilities that weren’t providing it, they all had different excuses.’

"Am I saying I hate white dudes?” asked the Oscar-winning “Room” actress, a question that she’d repeat twice more during her speech. She answered with a sneer, “No, I’m not … [but if] you make the movie that is a love letter to women of color, there is an insanely low chance a woman of color will have a chance to see your movie and review your movie.”

Replace those two quotes with "black" and come back to me.

@atomaweapon: If you can give me an example of a "white" movie, made for/targeting whites (that isn't some pro-clan movie), and you feel black people are being given a disproportionate say in terms of who gets to review the movie...sure. I will come back to you.
