Updaed March 5, 2019: Captain Marvel is now projected for a $350 million opening weekend globally, according to Deadline. That breaks down to $200m internationally and $150m in North America - a 50% increase over projections from the Hollywood trade 20 days ago.

A $350m opening weekend would put the Marvel Studios' film over other recent hits such as Wonder Woman ($228.3m), Deadpool 2 ($300.4m), and Ant-Man & the Wasp ($161m) but behind other recent Marvel hits such as Black Panther ($371.4m) and Avengers: Infinity War ($630m).

Captain Marvel is scheduled to debut in 4,200 screens in North America this weekend, and set a record internationally as the widest IMAX opening of all time with 1,360 screens (400 of those U.S/Canada).

 

Original Story: Early tracking for Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel projects that the film could take in $100 million in its March 8 opening weekend, according to Deadline.

If so, the Brie Larson-led film would be only the third MCU solo/origin launch film to meet or exceed $100m domestically in its first weekend, after Iron Man ($102m) and Black Panther ($202m).

Black Panther was originally projected for a $100-$120m domestic opening weekend three weeks out, but positive buzz ratched up those tracking figures as it neared release.

Captain Marvel opens in North American theaters Thursday, March 7.
