CAPTAIN MARVEL Soars to Biggest Opening for Female-led Film

 Captain Marvel


Despite all the butt-hurt protestations, the Female-led superhero film Captain Marvel broke records this past weekend with a $455 million worldwide box office take including a whopping $153 million in North America. The total was enough to launch the film into uncharted territory as the biggest worldwide launch of all time for a female-led movie. It puts the film atop this weekend's box office which sees How to Train Your Dragon 3 fall to number two despite adding another $14 million to its $119 million U.S. total.

Tyler Perry's concluding visit to the Madea Universe, A Madea Family Funeral brought in enough on its second weekend to put the film in third place with a $12 million total, while The Lego Movie 2 remained in the fourth slot with a $3.8 million take which puts its four-week total at just shy of $100 million.

Rounding out the top five was the Robert Rodriguez-directed cyberpunk action film Alita: Battle Angel which falls two spots to finish in fifth place after adding another $3.2 million to its $78 million grand total.

The Best Picture Oscar-winner Green Book continued to ride its fame by remaining in sixth place with a $2.4 million take while the romantic comedy film Isn't it Romantic remained in the seventh slot by bringing in another $2.4 million.

The top ten box office finishers were rounded out by eighth place finisher Fighting With My Family which added $2.2 million, the thriller Greta which brought in $2.1 this past weekend, and Apollo II which jumped up four slots with a $1.3 million take.
