“Captain Marvel” Heads For $350M Weekend

Captain Marvel Heads For 350m Weekend

It’s up to “Captain Marvel” to save the world from sluggish movie ticket sales this weekend.

With the U.S. domestic market down by 26% from last year at the same time, it’s hoped the new Marvel Studios film will supercharge the sluggish marketplace with the film on track for a $120-140 million domestic and as high as $350 million worldwide opening this weekend.

That global debut looks like it will be higher than “Wonder Woman” ($228M) and “Deadpool 2” ($300M) but likely behind “Black Panther” ($371M). Advance ticket sales are breaking records for the title and the film sits at 84% on Rotten Tomatoes from 170 reviews.

In addition, China is hot for the film with pre-sales there surpassing all other superhero films save “Avengers: Infinity War” at the same point.
