Captain Marvel is the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In recent years beside Avengers, Thor Ragnorok has had one of the biggest openings in Pakistan. It was released back in 2017. The film opened with great numbers and closed the weekend with 2.72 Crore.
In contrast Captain Marvel has had the following approximate opening weekend numbers:
Friday.. 80 lacs
Sunday… 70 lacs
Looking at the numbers we can easily declare Thor to be the winner, however lets look at the facts! The Captain Marvel released four weeks late which always affect the box office collection. Even then the total is close i.e. 2.5 crore.
While Thor enjoys popularity in Pakistan, Captain Marvel wasn’t a major brand. The only edge Captain Marvel had was its crucial connection with Avengers Endgame. This is one of the major reasons why the film has became huge.
While the film’s opening is not very big and could have been better, it is still decent. Considering the delay, in real terms Captain Marvel comes on the top whereas Thor is the obvious winner on paper. However, had Captain Marvel released on the same date as its international release, it would have raked in bigger numbers possibly beating Thor.
