I am proud to have contributed to Captain Marvel's super-powered global opening weekend. Notably, it also is the third highest MCU opening weekend in China ever (behind Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War) quieting doubts that a female-led film could perform well overseas.

Vers, also known as Carol Danvers and, later on, Captain Marvel, goes through the biggest change in character as she questions her past memories and current allegiances while on Earth.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the superhero flick opened on International Women's Day, leaning into its inherent girl power.

"Captain Marvel" performed well above studio projections, which had pegged the film at $125 million.

The company says the the Marvel Cinematic Universe has now crossed $1B in IMAX box office.

Green Bay Packers interested in trading for Dee Ford
The Chiefs placed their franchise tag on Ford recently but they have shown signs of being open to moving him soon. The 49ers are coming off a season where they finished with only 37 sacks, tied for 22nd in the league.

Captain Marvel introduced the Skrulls to the MCU, but this particular group of shapeshifters was seeking refuge from the Kree soldiers who were hunting them down.

The anti-"Captain Marvel" campaign included the flooding of Rotten Tomatoes audience scores, which artificially drove down the film's score to 55 per cent fresh from more than 44,000 votes as of Sunday.

Internationally, the film has grossed an estimated $302 million, making it the fifth highest worldwide opening weekend of all time and the second highest superhero opening weekend of all time, behind only "Avengers: Infinity War". In what should be surprising to no one, Captain Marvel is able to tie in all these details without making it feel overwhelming.

In its third weekend, "How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World" took in less than one-tenth of "Captain Marvel" to place second. Her comic timing leaves you impressed. It doesn't spoil any major reveals from the movie but if you're planning on watching it, you'd best return after having seen it on the big screen.

Marvel Studios now has seven of the top 20 film debuts in industry history and Walt Disney Studios holds 12 of the top 20.
