Their invaluable work often goes unnoticed in conversations regarding the success of tent-pole releases like Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel box office: How much has the MCU film made?

It is a major milestone in superhero cinema and, despite its relatively few shortcomings, is a truly commendable superhero origin story.

Set in the 1990s, "Captain Marvel" follows Danvers' journey as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes.

The character is expected to play a key role in Marvel's next film Avengers: Endgame, which is released in the United Kingdom on 25 April.

Captain Marvel is now playing in theaters!

Movie industry executives in the past dismissed movies about women and people of color- traditionally underrepresented in mainstream Hollywood works - perpetuating the myth that they don't succeed at the box office.

A Madea Family Funeral, writer/director/star Tyler Perry's swan song as the title character, dropped 55% in its second weekend with $12 million for a $45.8 million domestic total.

"Apollo 11", the acclaimed moon landing documentary featuring newly discovered and restored footage, continued to pack theaters. With $242.2 million worldwide, "Green Book" is the highest grossing best picture-winner since "The King's Speech". Where available, the latest global numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.
