Captain Marvel Stays At No. 1 At The Box Office
Another weekend at the top of the box office charts.
Captain Marvel continues to be the No. 1 movie at the box office. According to box office figures from EW, the superhero film pulled in $69.3 million in the US and Canada this past weekend--its second in theaters--keeping the film at the top of the box office charts. The $69.3 million, which is down 55 percent from its opening-weekend haul, now represents the 18th highest second-weekend in the history of movies.
There is a lot of space between Captain Marvel and the competition, as the animated film Wonder Park landed in the No. 2 position with $16 million. The No. 3 movie this past weekend was Five Feet Apart, which made $13.2 million.
Captain Marvel has now made $266.2 million in the US and Canada. Internationally, the film opened in Japan this weekend and made $5.6 million, which was good for No. 1 in Japan, and the highest opening for a standalone MCU character movie ever in the country.
The movie made a further $119.7 million from other international markets this weekend, boosting the movie's global results to $760.2 million in less than two weeks. A global box office of more than $1 billion is all but assured at this point.
Captain Marvel reportedly cost $150 million to make, and it holds the record for the biggest opening-weekend in the history of film for a female-led movie on a global basis.
