Updated March 22, 2019: Deadline reports Captain Marvel made $4.2m at the domestic box office Thurday, -8% from Wednesday and is now at $286.4m in the U.S. and Canada heading into its third weekend, where it is expected to total $35-$40m on it way past the $300m mark and perhaps $900m globally. 

Captain Marvel took second place for the first time since its release, versus Thursday evening previews for Jordan Peele's new horror film Us which totaled $7.4m. Us is expected to easily top the weekend box office. 

Updated March 20, 2019: Captain Marvel made $7.59 million at the domestic box office on Tuesday (a 46% jump on from Monday), for a new 12-day total of $278m, according to Forbes' Scott Mendelson.

With a current figure of $525m in overseas receipts, the film has now passed $800m at the global box office - $803m to be more precise. 

Besides already passing a plethora of Marvel Studios and superhero titles in domestic and worldwide lifetime totals in its first two weeks, perhaps most noteworthy is that Tuesday's total is Marvel's Studios fourth highest Tuesday/12th-day of release total according to figures at BoxOfficeMojo, behind only Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, and Avengers (in that order), no small feat given it's March. 

Box office analysts continue to project the film to eventually pass $1 billion worldwide and possibly over $400m domestically. 

Updated March 18, 2019: With estimates of the weekend's box office in, Captain Marvel has earned a cumulative $760.2 million worldwide, according to Deadline. $266.2m of that comes from North America, while $494m of that comes from international markets.

The $494m is notable because that is a larger foreign take than 2018's Ant-Man & The Wasp already, as well as both Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Notable markets are China ($132m), Korea ($36.5m), the United Kingdom ($30.9m), Brazil ($24.3m), and Mexico ($22.4m).

Updated March 13, 2019: Captain Marvel has earned $524 million at the worldwide box office, according to Deadline. The Marvel Studios film earned $34m globally on Monday, with a total to-date breakdown of $345m internationally and $179m domestically.

Captain Marvel earned an estimated $14.6m domestically on Tuesday, which the Hollywood trade points out is the second-best Tuesday in March ever, behind Beauty & The Beast ($17.8m) but ahead of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($12.1m).

Deadline cites an unnamed source who estimates that Captain Marvel will reach $750m worldwide by the end of the week, and projects the film to ultimately earn over $1 billion.

Updated March 12, 2019: With Monday's receipts tallied, Captain Marvel has now grossed $490 million worldwide at the box office, according to Deadline. That breaks down to $325.6m internationally and $164.4m in North America.

Internationally, the Brie Larson-starrer is performing best in China with $95m, followed by Korea ($25.3m), United Kingdom ($18.1m), Brazil ($14.7m), and Mexico ($13.7m).


Updated March 11, 2019: Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel has clocked $455.7 million in its opening weekend worldwide, according to Deadline. That breaks down to $302.3m internationally and $153.4m in the United States and Canada, and makes it the sixth-highest worldwide opening weekend debut of all time - and second among superhero films behind, of course, Avengers: Infinity War.

Of particular note is China's reported $89.3m opening weekend - the MCU's third-largest debut in the region ever, after Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War.

Updated March 8, 2019: Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel has earned an estimated $78 million across the globe, according to the Walt Disney Company. With the United States and Canada coming online Thursday evening, the Brie Larson-led film is showing in all major theatrical markets except Japan and Nigeria - where it is scheduled to open March 15.

Captain Marvel's take in China is particularly strong: Estimates have in it around $34m over Thursday night previews and Friday which makes either either the second or third-highest comic book superhero debut there behind Avengers: Infinity War ($71m) and maybe Venom ($34.2m) depending on its final decimal point total. 

The film has an estimated $20.7m take in the United States and Canada with Thursday previews.

Original Story: Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel has opened overseas with $2.51 million in China, according to Deadline. Captain Marvel's pre-sales in the country were second only to Avengers: Infinity War in the superhero genre, but the $2.51m opening reportedly places it fourth behind Infinity War, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: Civil War.

The Hollywood trade projects the film to garner $60-$90m from the Middle Kingdom during its opening weekend.

Deadline goes on to estimate opening day box offices in Korea at $5.9m and France at $1.7m.

Captain Marvel opens in North America this afternoon, March 7.
