Female Marvel superhero tops weekend box office

This weekend's results bring the Marvel Cinematic Universe's combined worldwide box office to $17.98 billion across 21 films.

The actress, who stars in the movie as Carol Danvers a.k.a. the eponymous Captain Marvel, shocked audiences as she showed up at cinemas across the U.S.

According to Deadline, the movie made $153 million in the United States and Canada, with a further $302 million coming in from global markets.

The new Marvel adventure made $153 million in the USA, with a worldwide figure of $455 million in all. Suffice it to say, Kevin Feige and co. must be pretty happy right about now.

Added to the US$302 million taken in internationally, the film's estimated total of US$455 million for the three-day weekend would give it the sixth highest global debut ever, according to Variety, and the best domestic start for a superhero film since Disney and Marvel's Black Panther opened a year ago with US$202 million.

The movie has gone down a storm online: while reviews are tentatively positive, the audience response is very warm indeed - it scored an A on an A+ to F scale with CinemaScore. China led the way internationally with $89.3 million for the third highest MCU opening weekend ever in that territory behind "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Captain America: Civil War".

The film hit screens on March 8, earning a whopping Rs 15.18 crore.

"A Madea Family Funeral", $12.1 million.

"Green Book", $2.5 million ($28.3 million international). Directed by Robert Rodriguez, the futuristic sci-fi adventure has bagged a mediocre $78.3 million in the USA and an impressive $303.4 million in the rest of the world.

"Alita: Battle Angel", $11.6 million.

"Lego Movie 2: The Second Part", $3.9 million.
