‘Captain Marvel’ is the Highest Grossing Movie of 2019

Captain Marvel Highest Grossing Film

After only three days in theaters, Captain Marvel is already the highest grossing film of 2019.

Earning an estimated 153$ million opening weekend, Captain Marvel marks the second-biggest debut for a new Marvel character behind Black Panther. Taking in $455 million in its global debut, Captain Marvel also marks the fifth highest international opening weekend of all time and the second biggest superhero weekend. With all the success Captain Marvel has already seen, criticism that a female-led film wouldn’t resonate with audiences have been belied.

This is an important victory for the Marvel. After internet trolls attempted to manipulate audiences by attacking the Audience Rating score on Rotten tomatoes, critics have been writing favorable reviews. Now the movie boasts an impressive A CinemaScore.

Captain Marvel introduces a hero many believe will be a pivotal character for Avengers: Endgame, Carol Danvers (Brie Larson). She is a part Kree, part human warrior that can only remember parts of her past through flashbacks. When she crash lands on earth in the 90’s she finds herself tasked with protecting earth from the shape-shifting Skrulls that are infiltrating our planet. In the process of working with Nick Furry (Samuel Jackson), she discovers her true identity and the origins of her powers while saving the world.

This year is a superhero year for Halloween, and it appears Captain Marvel will be a favorite amongst girls. Her strong girl power message, successful opening, and connection to Avengers: Endgame all suggest she will be in high demand!

‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Rakes in $350 Million at Worldwide Box Office

Alita Money

Originally dubbed as a flop by movie insiders before it even hit theaters, Alita: Battle Angel is proving itself to be a huge box office success. This weekend’s numbers revealed that the live action anime is still holding strong, ranking in third behind How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and A Madea Family Funeral. Alita now stands at an impressive total domestic gross of $72 million, and over $278 million in foreign box office earnings.

It is also important to keep in mind that we are only 18 days into the movie’s release, making Alita the 5th highest-grossing movie of 2019 so far. With plenty of time for growth through the rest of the month, Alita has silenced the critics quote of $170 million. Now fans are crying out for a sequel as 20th Century Fox undergoes its buyout from the Walt Disney Company.

We can see why Alita has been so successful. Based on the on the story Battle Angel Alita originally created by Yukito Kishiro for Shueisha’s Weekly Business Jump in 1990, this theatrical rendition is full of kick ass girl power and stunning digital creations. Set in a post-apocalyptic future, Alita’s incomplete body is discovered in the Iron City’s garbage dump below the aerial city of Zolem. She is rebuilt by her friend and mentor, Dr. Dyson Ido, completely devoid of memory but with the inkling her purpose is something greater. Using her innate knowledge of the legendary cyborg martial art known as Panzer Kunst, she becomes a bounty hunter. From here her story and enthralling action that you will have to see in theaters transforms Alita. By the end of the experience it is apparent that there needs to be a sequel.
