Brie Larson surprises fans at 'Captain Marvel' screenings

Brie Larson surprises fans at 'Captain Marvel' screenings

On Tuesday, ahead of "Captain Marvel's" opening, Fandango reported that the film, helmed by Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson ("Room") had become the biggest advanced-ticket seller since "Avengers: Infinity War", surpassing "Black Panther".

"[The role of Captain Marvel] comes with all these privileges and powers that make me feel uncomfortable because I don't really need them". Given the current trend, trade analysts predict that the Captain Marvel will draw curtains to its opening weekend in India at Rs 40 crore, at least.

The Indian Express film critic Shalini Langer noted in her review, "Writer-directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck keep the action moving fast and do not linger over any episodes".

Finally, there's been an unnecessary amount of toxicity surrounding Captain Marvel simply because it's a female led superhero movie.

This is the first time Captain Marvel is on screen with Captain America, who many believe she will replace.

While Rotten Tomatoes had to change its audience rating system because of online trolls, audiences who actually saw the film gave it an "A" CinemaScore.

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

Black Panther broke records around the world past year, becoming only the third film in history to gross over $700 million in the United States and Canada - taking a worldwide box office total of $1.346 billion. Overseas, the film grossed $22 million from 964 global IMAX screens, achieving the best worldwide Marvel IMAX opening record and second-highest IMAX global opening Weekend. The U.K. generated $16.8 million, the third highest March launch for that market. In its second weekend, Tyler Perry's "A Madea Family Funeral" dropped 55 per cent with $12 million.

"Green Book", $2.5 million ($28.3 million international).

"Alita: Battle Angel", $11.6 million.

"Lego Movie 2: The Second Part", $3.9 million.
