Focus Features’ sci-fi movie “Captive State” generated $300,000 on Thursday. The trio of wide openings is expected to be dwarfed by the sophomore frame of Brie Larson’s “Captain Marvel,” which could generate another $70 million to $85 million. The 21st entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has taken in $196.8 million domestically in its first seven days.
“Captain Marvel” has helped 2019 North American moviegoing rebound from a dismal start, which had resulted in a 27% decline prior to the March 8 launch of the superhero tentpole. As of March 13, the year-to-date total was $1.84 billion, down 21% from 2018, according to Comscore.
