According to Variety, the Brie Larson-starring flick surpassed studio projections, which initially anticipated an opening weekend of $125 million at the domestic box office.
It did that and then some.
Larson noted last month how movies that are landmarks for representation, like "Captain Marvel", often come with the weight of huge expectations, with a lot riding on their successes or failures. Brie Larson- the real Captain Marvel actually dropped by the movie premiere, and surprised fans herself.
The film is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, with Boden the first female director of a Marvel movie. "So the box office performance has been pretty good", said Zhang Jiaxing, business manager of UME Shuangjing in Beijing.

"We have high expectations for a blockbuster like Captain Marvel".
Audiences in the USA and Canada for "Captain Marvel" were 55 percent male and 45 percent female. Not only did the movie have the largest worldwide opening for a female-led film, it had the second-largest worldwide opening for any superhero film behind Avengers: Infinity War.
"How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World" comes in second with $14.7 million, while "A Madea Family Funeral" is third with $12 million.
"Captain Marvel" scared away any new wide releases. 9 of the Top 10 grossing theatres were IMAX locations. As depicted in this clip from Marvel's twitter account, Larson was also wearing a custom made Captain Marvel inspired tracksuit.
