Box Office: CAPTAIN MARVEL Becomes First Movie of 2019 to Cross $200 Million Domestically

It probably shouldn’t come as too big a surprise that Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel crossed the $200 million mark domestically yesterday with an estimated $19 million on its second Friday. After all, it did make more than $153 million its opening weekend.
What is somewhat surprising is that it’s the first movie of 2019 to hit that mark despite sequels to earlier blockbusters like The LEGO Movie 2 (which finally hit $100 million after six weeks), How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass.
Captain Marvel is looking likely to make somewhere in the $70 to 72 million range for the weekend, just behind Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War in their second weekends, as comparison with other MCU movies. Incidentally, it only has to make $71.6 million this weekend to surpass the second weekend of Star Wars: The Last Jediwhich opened bigger but took a large plunge in its second weekend.
Paramount’s animated Wonder Park and CBS Films’ teen drama Five Feet Apart will take second and third place this weekend, respectively, both doing better than projected.
Check back on Monday morning for the full box office report for the weekend.

  1. Well, that’s weird. I mean, several sections of the internet assured me it would fail because it stars a woman superhero and was a slap in the face to Stan Lee. I can’t believe they got it wrong.

  2. Besides the major Stan Lee tribute at the beginning of the film, the director worked hard to fix Stan’s cameo where he was reading his dialogue from the Mall Rats screenplay. Stan had not been strong that day and his voice was week so they got audio from alternate takes of Stan’s actual scene in Mall Rats and used that dialogue to fix Stan’s cameo, according to Kevin Smith.

  3. Stan’s cameo, and Brie Larson’s smile back at him, was the most touching moment in the film. (Remember the trolls griping that Brie wasn’t smiling enough in the trailers?)

  4. Tight slap for those who criticized the movie performance. The box office results show the rampage of captain marvel. THE AVENGERS END GAME is on its way to washout all the records…Ahahaha!
    Here is something that provides live movies and sports matches which is worth spending your time on GHD MOVIES APPLICATION

  5. “the major Stan Lee tribute at the beginning of the film”
    Would be nice to see a tribute to Steve Ditko in the next Spider-Man movie … though I know that film of Ditko is scarce.
