Female-fronted superhero film ‘Captain Marvel’ rakes in millions worldwide

Actress Brie Larson’s ‘Captain Marvel’ continues to do heroic business.

In its latest box office milestone, the female-fronted superhero film ‘Captain Marvel’ zoomed past $900 million in ticket sales worldwide.

According to an article by Variety, ‘Captain Marvel’ brought in a mighty $87 million globally this weekend, including $52 million from international territories. It has now generated $589 million overseas for a global haul of $910 million. At the domestic box office, ‘Captain Marvel’ brought in an impressive $35 million during its third weekend of release, bringing its North American tally to $320 million.

It now ranks as the 10th-biggest comic-book release of all time, surpassing the lifetime hauls of superhero movies like ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ ($854 million), ‘Venom’ ($855 million), and ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ ($880 million).

‘Captain Marvel’ injected a much-needed boost into the worldwide box office. Marvel positioned the film as an essential stepping stone ahead of ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ the epic conclusion arriving in April 2019 that will determine the fate of a number of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Meanwhile, Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ launched abroad with $16.7 million from 47 foreign markets. Starring Kenyan Oscar award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, the psychological thriller about a family terrorized by a group of doppelgangers drummed up a massive $70 million at the domestic box office for a worldwide start of $86.95 million. ‘Us’ saw the best debut in the United Kingdom ($3.7 million), followed by France ($2 million), Spain ($1.2 million), and Germany ($1.4 million).

Aside from ‘Captain Marvel’ and ‘Us,’ Hollywood movies took a backseat overseas. ‘More Than Blue,’ a remake of the 2009 South Korean film, amassed $29.6 million from six territories for a global tally of $136 million. Chinese titles ‘Song of Youth’ and ‘Money’ rounded out box office charts, generating $11.2 million, and $10.3 million, respectively.
