Avengers: Endgame ticket pre-sales aren’t the only thing going on that is making Marvel Studios celebrate. This past weekend, Captain Marvel officially crossed the $1 billion mark at the box office per a report from Forbes. $355.6 million was from domestic gross and the rest, $638.6 million, from overseas.
The film most definitely got a boost from impressive pre-sales tickets and how many IMAX tickets were sold for the female-led superhero movie. Some predicted that the Brie Larson-led superhero film would earn less than expected box office wise, but thanks to the Marvel brand, it still managed to cross that mark.
The film is right behind Captain America: Civil War (which grossed $ 1,153.3 billion worldwide) in terms of financial gross. It won’t be likely to surpass Civil War box office wise considering that Avengers: Endgame is on the horizon so soon however it is another significant boost in Marvel’s impressive money-making streak.
