Box Office Milestone: ‘Captain Marvel’ Zooms Past $500M in Global Ticket Sales


Captain Marvel — the first female-led superhero pic from Marvel Studios and Disney — crossed the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office Tuesday, less than a week after it began rolling out in cinemas across the globe.


The movie’s cume through Monday stood at $490 million, including $164.3 million domestically and  $325.6 million overseas. Captain Marvel is now virtually assured of finishing its run with $1 billion or more in global ticket sales.


Over the weekend, it crossed $455 million globally,   including $153.4 million in North America and more than $303 million overseas, which repped the fifth-best foreign launch of all time (the movie began unfurling in some markets midweek on March 6). On Monday, Captain Marvel collected another $33 million globally.


China leads all international markets with $95 million, followed by South Korea ($25.3 million), the U.K. ($18.1 million), Brazil ($14.7 million), Mexico ($13.7 million), Australia ($12 million), Indonesia ($11.8 million), Russia ($11.3 million), France ($9.6 million), Germany ($8.4 million), India ($7.7 million), Thailand ($7 million) and other ($91 million).
