Captain Marvel is the first solo female-led superhero film for Marvel and is taking cinemas by storm since its arrival last week. "Captain Marvel" is no exception, and if you kept your eyes peeled while Carol Danvers was rediscovering her past, you probably caught a lot of easily overlooked details. The film also represented IMAX's best March opening and the second highest Marvel opening for IMAX globally.

Moviegoers were clearly undeterred by a campaign to derail the pic with negative audience reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and awarded it with an A CinemaScore and strong exit grades, according to THR. In fact, "Captain Marvel" just further proves that Feige and Co. have built a bulletproof empire.
Taff declined to address "Captain Marvel" foes but applauded Marvel and Kevin Feige for propelling a movie that expanded the Marvel universe.
"Marvel Studios once again proves that stories combining diverse perspectives and different experiences make great movies that play to everybody".
Captain Marvel's introduction to the MCU was first teased in the post-credits of Avengers: Infinity War, when Nick Fury spent his final moments of life shooting her a message with a heretofore unseen pager.
It's been a sluggish start to the year at the movies.
In "Captain Marvel's" case, timing isn't everything, but it certainly does help. 9 of the Top 10 grossing theatres were IMAX locations.
Academy Award best-picture victor "Green Book" continued to see one of the largest Oscar bumps in years. With $242.2 million worldwide, "Green Book" is the highest grossing best picture-winner since "The King's Speech". Where available, the latest global numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.
