Captain Marvel (Disney/Marvel)

As the years tick by movie studios seem to become more and more focussed on box office tracking ahead of big movie releases. We’re increasingly seeing headlines made up of tracking data in the weeks leading up to release day.

Captain Marvel is no strange to those headlines. The first entry in the MCU headlined by a female character has huge expectations amongst the fan community. Many could argue more rests on the shoulders of Brie Larson than even that of Avengers: Endgame.

If you fall in to that category then Box Office Pro has some good news for you. According to the latest figures Captain Marvel is currently tracking for a $160M opening weekend in North America. At the lower end of the scale the site reckons the movie could make $140M whilst at the top end it could reach $180M.
