As per trade analysts, Captain Marvel is being ranked under one of the biggest Hollywood openers in India.

Despite releasing simultaneously with Sujoy Ghosh's taut thriller Badla, both the films from two different genres have been able to attract audiences in theatres in a non-holiday weekend. Their combined weekend box office figure is Rs 63.91 crore.

Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel follows the story of Larson's character Carol Danvers as she navigates a monumental war between two alien races which transcends galaxies. The cast includes Samuel L Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg and Jude Law. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have directed the feature. It was recently reported that online piracy website Tamil Rockers had leaked the film just a day after its release in the country. According to IBTimesCaptain Marvel earnings in India may get affected as potential audience may choose to illegally download it, rather than visit a theatre.
