Marvel Studios' first female-fronted superhero movie became one of the biggest blockbusters ever led by a woman during its historic opening weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.

In its opening weekend, Marvel's latest superhero flick claimed a whopping $455 million in worldwide box office sales, including a dizzying $153 million in terms of domestic revenue.

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. Have you seen Captain Marvel yet?

It also became clear that Kim's hopes of faking denuclearization to get the global community to ease sanctions have failed. South Korea's weather agency says a small quake detected in North Korea was likely caused by a mining operation.

Larson's Captain Marvel character is also expected to appear in "Avengers: Endgame" due out April 26.

"Captain Marvel" also breaks new ground for Disney in that it's the first female-led superhero movie from Marvel. Captain Marvel also made its debut at 7th overall in opening weekends for all Marvel movies. According to Box Office Mojo, this makes Captain Marvel the third-highest March opening of all time, behind Batman v Superman ($166 million) and Beauty and the Beast ($174 million). Worldwide numbers bring the film's total opening weekend sales to a whopping $455 million. Global grosses were especially strong, led by $89.3 million in China, where "Captain Marvel" trailed only "Captain America: Civil War" and "Avengers: Infinity War" among Marvel releases. Living on Earth in 1995, she keeps having recurring memories of another life as U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers.

"Mostly, I'm thrilled for the doors this will open", DeConnick, who was a consultant on "Captain Marvel", told The Washington Post. Conversely, it's possible that the same benchmarks drew increased vitriol from the other side, who questioned star Brie Larson's apparent dismissive nature during a press run.
