Captain Marvel box office: How much has the MCU film made?

Captain Marvel shattered expectations, and the hopes of hundreds of angry trolls, this past weekend.

The 21st instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe hauled in a staggering sum at the domestic box office. Average attendance has been above 70 percent, in some places as high as 90 percent. It seems likely that many felt drawn to the film's societal benchmarks, being the first female-led Marvel movie, as well as the first to feature a female director.

China posted an estimated $89.3 million to be the third-highest MCU opening weekend ever (behind only Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War). Moving forward, I decided to make sure my press days were more inclusive...

Number two at the box office this past weekend was last week's leader, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, followed by A Madea Family Funeral, Lego Movie 2: The Second Part and Alita: Battle Angel.
