"Thankfully "Captain Marvel's" superpowers extend to the box office realm and as expected provided a much-needed box office boost that the 2019 box office has been waiting for with a positively out of this world debut", Comscore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian tells Variety.

According to a statement, the film earned Rs 15.49 crore (GBOC - Gross box office collection) on day one, Rs 16.79 crore GBOC on day two and Rs 16.19 crore GBOC on day three, taking the total to Rs 48.47 crore.

Captain Marvel's $455 million global opening weekend is the biggest global opening ever for a female-led movie.

That's exactly what happened for cinema-goers about to watch Captain Marvel in New Jersey, when Carol Danvers herself, Brie Larson, turned up for a surprise visit on Saturday.

Overseas Captain Marvel also managed to astonish with $302 million, giving the film the fifth highest global opening weekend of all-time and the sixth largest worldwide debut ever, for an estimated total of $455 million all-in. That's in addition to the biggest opening for the month of March.

As with many female-led blockbusters in recent years, sexist trolls tried to torpedo "Captain Marvel" even before its release, which led review-aggregating site Rotten Tomatoes to change its policy, restricting comments and reviews until a movie is released.

As excitement for the Avengers: Infinity War follow-up continues to build to near-feverish levels, directors Anthony and Joe Russo have announced on Twitter that the movie is nearly finished, the brothers having now completed their cut of the film.

A still from the film "Captain Marvel".

Captain Marvel broke box office records over the weekend when the Brie Larson-starrer soared to a $153 million box office debut in North America. I want to go out of my way to connect the dots. Larson said. "No, I'm not ..."

"I'm kind of over the 'First female blah blah blah, ' and 'Wow, maybe women can actually do the same things that dudes can do - what a insane concept!' People just push us away once the movement gains momentum and act like we were never really there". Have you seen Captain Marvel yet?
