Some said it couldn’t be done. Some said Captain Marvel was set to be Marvel Studios’ first real financial disappointment. When the movie first hit theaters a few weeks back, it was clear that that would not be the case. What was less clear was where the movie would end its theatrical run. As of this writing, it’s still not clear where this gravy train will end.
As of this past weekend, Captain Marvel has officially crossed $900 million in worldwide ticket sales, currently sitting at $910.3 million, according to Box Office Mojo. On the domestic front, it’s taken in $321.5 million and on the foreign front, $588.8 million. This past weekend alone, it managed to snag $87.1 million around the globe, proving that there is still a fair bit of demand for the Brie Larson-starring movie.
But where can we expect this thing to end? It is a bit hard to say, but if we are to look at its descend rate, this coming weekend could see it nearing or even surpassing $1 billion. In fact, it passing $1 billion — even if it doesn’t happen this weekend — seems like a sure thing, based on what I’m seeing here, but I don’t see it going beyond $1.05 billion in its whole run, especially since this coming weekend is seeing Dumbo hit, with the following weekend seeing Shazam! fly into theaters.
In short, it looks like Marvel Studios has done a good job of making sure Captain Marvel hits theaters fast and hard so that it takes in all the box office bucks before falling off around the time the next big Disney film hits. Many of us doubted you, Disney, but your plan does seem to be working!
