Here at Good Brothers, we’re big fans of the MCU. So like millions of others, we were well excited for the release of Captain Marvel – if only to get our hands on another limited edition drinks cup to add to the collection.
In fact, Captain Marvel’s opening weekend was so successful that it took a mind-boggling $455 million in worldwide box office sales. That’s enough to earn a place as the sixth-biggest opening weekend of all time!
That also means that Captain Marvel had the biggest opening weekend ever for a female-led film, and boasts a healthy 80% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
