Marvel’s massive hit, Captain Marvel, has passed the $1 billion mark at the global box office, making it the 7th Marvel Cinematic Universe film to reach this impressive milestone. In the history of film there have been only 37 movies to make it into the “Billion Dollar Club”, making Captain Marvel the 38th.
Although not being the cultural phenomenon that Black Panther was, Captain Marvel has continued to outshine almost all predictions in terms of box office. Initial reports for the film’s opening weekend had analysts estimating the film to land in the $90-100 million box office range. This number was quickly changed due to Captain Marvel bringing in $61 million Thursday/Friday alone, later bringing in a total opening weekend box office of $153.4 million dollars just in the domestic market.
At this point, no one truly knows where this movie will land at the end of it’s box office run, but what we do know is that it has reached a Box Office level that many analysts didn’t see coming, Higher, Further, Faster!
