Brie Larson Surprises 'Captain Marvel' Moviegoers At New Jersey Theater

Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson in the lead role, is the first female-led superhero film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Also featuring Samuel L Jackson, Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening and Ben Mendelsohn, "Captain Marvel" released worldwide March 8.

The film opened with Rs 15.18 crore, then Rs 16.79 crore on Saturday - taking the total collection to Rs 32.28 crore.

Marvel Studios 'Captain Marvel shatters IMAX records, delivering US$36.1 million - to become the fifth biggest IMAX opening of all-time and the first non-sequel to crack the top five IMAX films of all time.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the superhero flick opened on International Women's Day, leaning into its inherent girl power.

Despite internet trolls attempting to sabotage the film by posting bad reviews on Rotten Tomatoes before the movie's debut, Captain Marvel is soaring past its predicted $125 million opening with no signs of slowing down.

This was Marvel's third-biggest opening weekend ever in the country, only behind "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Captain America: Civil War".

All of which is to say: Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman box office performances don't necessarily compare well.

Of course, Captain Marvel's March opening also means it's facing very little competition.

The 90s-set origin story of pilot Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) and her transformation into an all-powerful super-being, has landed solidly with critics too. It took in almost triple what had been the biggest opener of the year with "How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World" at $55 million on February 22-24.

Surprising audiences before the screening, Larson walked out holding one of the cinema's soft drink cups and thanked fans for their support.

The film garnered an "A" CinemaScore from audiences and a 79% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes.
