This weekend will be all about, you guessed it… Captain Marvel.
The first female-led superhero pic from Marvel Studios and Disney is expected to earn $60 million to $70 million in its second weekend of play at the North American box office, easily enough to retain the crown.
Captain Marvel has already zoomed past the $500 million mark in worldwide ticket sales, including nearly $190 million in the U.S. through Wednesday.
Opening nationwide this weekend are Paramount’s animated family pic Wonder Park, CBS Films’ teen drama Five Feet Apart and Focus Features’ sci-fi adventure Captive State.
Wonder Park is tracking to debut in the $8 million to $13 million range. The story follows a young girl named June (Brianna Denski) who discovers she’s the only one who can save an amusement park full of magical rides and talking animals. The voice cast also includes Matthew Broderick, Jennifer Garner, Kenan Thompson, Ken Hudson Campbell, Ken Jeong, Mila Kunis and John Oliver.
