Despite some lukewarm reviews and a bunch of crybaby MRA's twisting themselves into pretzels over the Horrible Mean Girl Movie That Is Ruining Cinema, Captain Marvel-the latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe-performed.marvelously.at the box office on its opening weekend.

At least a dozen vfx companies worked on the Disney/Marvel picture: Industrial Light & Magic, Trixter, Framestore, Animal Logic, Lola Visual Effects, Scanline VFX, Rising Sun Pictures, Luma Pictures, Digital Domain, Rise, Cantina, and SSVFX.

Wonder Woman faced some skepticism before the 2017′s film's massive box office: Was she worthy of carrying her own movie? Add on the $302 million it took in overseas - the fifth-best overseas debut of all time - and the movie pulled in a mind-blowingly $456 million in its opening weekend.

Captain Marvel's box office performance went higher, further, faster than even its sky-high industry tracking estimates. The film also represented IMAX's best March opening and the second highest Marvel opening for IMAX globally.

For Disney, it's a strong start for a year littered with tentpole releases, some of which are sure to surpass "Captain Marvel", including: "Avengers: Endgame", "Toy Story 4", a remake of "The Lion King" and the next "Star Wars" movie. Imax screens accounted for $36 million of "Captain Marvel's" ticket sales, ranking among the top five debuts of all time at Imax theaters. It seems likely that many felt drawn to the film's societal benchmarks, being the first female-led Marvel movie, as well as the first to feature a female director.

Like the "Force Awakens" sequel "The Last Jedi", "Captain Marvel" had to tangle with trolls who sought to lessen the film's impact.

The Brie Larson-starring Disney release also notched the sixth largest worldwide debut ever.
