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.

Brie Larson-led Captain Marvel witnessed a limited growth on the second day of its release. Another trade analyst Girish Johar also echoed similar prediction for the Marvel film. I think you see that in their box office.

Captain Marvel is expected to stay on top of the box office throne at least for the next couple of weeks. The movie will stand behind Black Panther, which opened to $200 million past year.
