In the MCU, the two characters divided the Avengers over a fight pertaining to the Winter Soldier in Captain America: Civil War. But what other distinguishing qualities (apart from a name that makes her sound like a brand ambassador) does Captain Marvel have?

Captain Marvel is a bona fide blockbuster. The film has done tremendously well in the U.S. as well as all over the world.

Larson greeted excited fans before the screening. Now, the film is estimated to have gathered a cool $153m from that market instead, making it the highest grossing film of 2019 so far in only three days.

While Rotten Tomatoes had to change its audience rating system because of online trolls, audiences who actually saw the film gave it an "A" CinemaScore. Just then, Captain Marvel appears and asks for Fury. What characters do you want to see on the big screen? The "biggest" new movie opening is the animated WONDER PARK, but with a couple of bigger animated movies still hanging around the top five, I don't see WONDER PARK having much success.

"We are going to cast the best Eternals cast that we can and when we're ready to announce it we promise you we will".

A prequel to "Avengers: Endgame", which is due to hit cinemas next month, "Captain Marvel" is set in the 1990s and follows the journey of the female superhero as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes. It falls behind Avengers: Infinity War, and is the sixth best global officer premier of all time. And, this year will get a marvellous start in the genre with Marvel Studios' first female-led film Captain Marvel. It's made $45.9 million in 10 days.

Captain Marvel has mid- and post-credit end scenes. Vincent D'Onofrio's directorial debut, "The Kid", was largely overlooked by moviegoers.

"Apollo 11", the acclaimed moon landing documentary featuring newly discovered and restored footage, continued to pack theatres.

Academy Award best-picture victor "Green Book" continued to see one of the largest Oscar bumps in years.

Opening weekend, the film came in with a massive $153 million domestic opening, surpassing the estimated $125 million that the studio projected. Through March 3, ticket sales were down 26 per cent according to Comscore. Where available, the latest global numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. According to Deadline, the movie made $153 million in the United States and Canada, with a further $302 million coming in from worldwide markets.

"How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World", $14.7 million ($21.7 million international). Alita: Battle Angel, its closest competitor in terms of the type of audience it appeals to, opened multiple weeks ago.

Stan & Ollie, Jon S Baird's biopic of comic duo Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, starring Steve Coogan and John C Reilly, earned $215,000 in its third weekend for eOne, banking a decent $2 million. The comedic drama based on the 2015 robbery of the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company has collared $1.3 million for Studiocanal after plunging by 49 per cent to $332,000 in its second frame.
