Writer/directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s superhero blockbuster Captain Marvel has reportedly earned over $500 million at the global box office in just its first six days.
The 21st entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe scored $164.3 million domestically across its first four days of release, with a $325.6 million international cume across six days. China was the film’s biggest foreign market, by far, with a $95 million draw. That was followed by a $25.3 million haul from South Korea, and the UK with $18.1 million.
Those figures also mean that the MCU has now passed $18 billion at the global box office, making it comfortably the highest-grossing franchise of all time.
Industry insiders have praised the movie’s success for reviving the domestic box office. Compared to last year, and prior to Captain Marvel’s release, the domestic box office was down 27% on last year. Thanks to Marvel’s latest alone, that figure has risen to 21%.
Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law. Larson herself will return as the character in just one month’s time, in directors Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Endgame, out on the 25th of April.
