Captain Marvel easily stayed No. 1 in its second weekend, earning another $69.3 million in North America and $119.7 million overseas for a mighty worldwide total of $760.2 million.
This puts the film considerably above earlier expectations that it would merely cross the global $700 million mark in its second week of release.
In that short period, the film has surpassed the domestic totals of several high performing MCU films such as Ant-Man and the Wasp at $215 million, Doctor Strange at $232 million and Captain America: The Winter Soldier at $259 million. With its notable box office performance, Captain Marvel has already become the third highest grossing film directed by a woman, after Wonder Woman and Frozen.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as the commander of Starforce, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, Algenis Perez Soto as Att-Lass, McKenna Grace as a young Carol Danvers and Annette Bening as the Supreme Intelligence.
