Captain Marvel scored an enormous opening weekend at the box office, both in the United States and worldwide. In fact, its $153 million domestic debut is the best for a new Marvel franchise besides Black Panther, and its $455 million worldwide debut is the second biggest opening weekend in Marvel Cinematic Universe history ever. Only Avengers: Infinity War — basically the biggest comic book movie ever — made more in its first weekend in theaters than Captain Marvel:

$455 million is not only the second biggest worldwide debut for Marvel; it’s the sixth-biggest worldwide debut for any movie ever. Here’s the top ten of that list:

  1. Avengers: Infinity War: $640.5 million
  2. The Fate of the Furious: $541.9 million
  3. Star Wars: The Force Awakens: $529 million
  4. Jurassic World: $525.5 million
  5. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2: $483.2 million
  6. Captain Marvel: $455 million
  7. Star Wars: The Last Jedi: $450.8 million
  8. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: $422.5 million
  9. Furious 7: $397.7 million
  10. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: $394.0 million

It’s also worth noting — despite the efforts of trolls deliberately sinking the film’s audience score on websites like Rotten Tomatoes — that Captain Marvel got an A rating from audiences on CinemaScore, the same score that Avengers: Infinity War got last year. So it could have a long healthy run at the box office — at least until Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters on April 26.
