"Captain Marvel", $153 million ($302 million international). As such, the Captain Marvel post-credits scene (technically a mid-credits scene) is the talk of the town, at times even more than the movie itself.

The performance is also a welcomed sight for the domestic box office, which is coming off of a 17-year low in ticket sales for February.

It is also estimated today, Sunday, will bring in $38,581,000, which would give Captain Marvel a $153 million opening - more than Disney's estimate of $125 million and nearly double that of the low $80 million estimates, but not as high as the $180 million projections and comes in lower than Deadline's estimate.

While Rotten Tomatoes had to change its audience rating system because of online trolls, audiences who actually saw the film gave it an "A" CinemaScore. Yes, Brie Larson was serving away popcorn and soda to movie watchers.
