"Captain Marvel" has gone higher, further, faster at the box office to the score of $1 billion worldwide.
After a month in release, "Captain Marvel" has raked in $358 million at the domestic box office and $645 million internationally.
It is now the first female-led superhero movie and one of only a few female-led films to join the $1 billion club. It's the ninth live-action superhero movie to earn that figure (seven of those are Marvel films).
Brie Larson stars as the titular heroine, an Air Force pilot named Carol Danvers who is fused with alien DNA that gives her immense super powers. She'll be seen again, kicking Thanos' ass, in "Avengers: Endgame," opening April 26.
