Captain Marvel is the #1 movie for it’s weekend’s opening! It took $153 million in tickets sales in US theaters. It was the years best movie opening.

The movie found success with a female superhero at a quiet time of year. Also, maybe with the help of some ’90s nostalgia?

It was easily the best stateside debut weekend of any movie this year, outperforming expectations.

The film’s opening weekend was the seventh best of the 21 films in the Marvel movie franchise. It was just ahead of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which made $146.5 million and a bit behind Iron Man 3‘s $174.1 million. Marvel’s best film is Avengers: Infinity War, which took in $257.7 million.
