There was never any doubt as to which movie would reign supreme at the box office this weekend past, but the question was always just how well Captain Marvel would hold up. Pretty solidly it seems, as Marvelís latest dipped just 55% (which is better than the majority of its peers) to earn an additional $69.3 million in the US while adding another $119.7 million from international markets.
On the US domestic <g class="gr_ gr_14 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Punctuation only-ins replaceWithoutSep" id="14" data-gr-id="14">side</g> this puts Captain Marvel at $266 million, while internationally itís hovering at just under the half a billion dollars mark ($132 million of that coming from China alone). That all adds up to a staggering $760 million worldwide haul. This means that after just 10 days, itís already the 10th biggest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie ever and is about to shoot past Guardians of the Galaxyís $773.3 million. Itís also now the third-largest female-directed/co-directed feature ever following Wonder Woman ($821 million) and Frozen ($1.2 billion). At this point, moving up a spot and eventually joining that exclusive billion dollar club is just an eventuality.
