Captain Marvel is already going higher, further, and faster than most Marvel Studios Movies. The film earned $20.7M in Thursday night previews, the fifth-best opening night in Marvel Studios history.
Captain Marvel only trails the Thursday totals of Avengers: Infinity War ($39M), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($27.6M), Black Panther ($25.2M), and Captain America: Civil War ($25M). Those films all enjoyed massive opening weekends with Civil War being the lowest at $179M.
It is still very early, but Captain Marvel could reach $140M over the weekend and may soar even higher than that. The film also had the second-best first day in China in MCU history with $34M, behind only Infinity War.
