Captain Marvel has made waves since it debuted in theaters by having the biggest-ever opening weekend for a female-fronted film. The movie made even more history with a $153 million box office debut weekend in North America and $455 million worldwide.
The box office success comes after Captain Marvel was bashed by trolls on Rotten Tomatoes before it even came out. However, the film’s rating is steadily rising from the online hate and getting a better rating. Critics have boasted rave reviews in regards to the film despite the online hate.
The film stars Brie Larson as the titular character in Marvel’s first ever female-led superhero film.
While it’s obvious this is the studio’s first female-led superhero film, women are also making waves behind the scenes. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are co-directing, and Boden is Marvel’s first female directors.
Finally, if you’re as crazy about the film as we are, you can check out Larson and co-star Samuel L. Jackson do an amazing recreation of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s Oscar performance of “Shallow” below.
Captain Marvel is in theaters now.
