Captain Marvel Skyrockets To $53M+ Saturday, Kicks Internet Trolls & Flies Toward $157M Opening – Update

Disney’s Captain Marvel looks to have grossed $53.1M as at Saturday, March 9, which though 14% off from Friday, is technically up when you take out Thursday night previews out of Friday’s take.

With about $41.3m earning on Friday, business was technically up 29% today for the Anna Boden-Ryan Fleck-directed superhero movie.

But in like-for-like scenarios (where Thursday is part of Friday’s B.O.), Captain Marvel‘s Friday-to-Saturday percent ease steeper than Wonder Woman (-8%) but significantly better than Batman v. Superman (-38%) and not that far from Black Panther (-13%).

Opening weekend for Captain Marvel is now at $157M, still marvelous and the third best domestic debut for the month of March and 7th best in Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Captain Marvel was Teflon to the internet trolls who griped about Brie Larson’s sincere-hearted call for diversity in critics, and how men are the leading demo for the female superhero female, which was not the case with Warner Bros./DC’s Wonder Woman.
