LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Captain Marvel Adds $354 Million to the March Box Office Total of $962 Million; Year-to-Date Box Office Hits $2.4 Billion

IMDbPro Data Shows Audiences are Most Excited for Avengers: Endgame, Hellboy and Shazam! in April

Extensive Domestic and Worldwide Box Office Data Powered by Box Office Mojo is Featured on the IMDbPro Site and App for Members

IMDbPro (www.imdbpro.com), the essential resource for entertainment industry professionals, today revealed the movies that topped the U.S. box office in March 2019 and the upcoming April releases that audiences are most anticipating. This definitive data is derived from Box Office Mojo, a service of IMDbPro and the leading online source of box-office data, and the IMDbPro MOVIEmeter rankings, which are based on the actual page views of the more than 250 million monthly unique visitors to IMDb.

“All told, March helped turn the tables on what was a slower start to 2019, outperforming grosses in 2018 and delivering the second-largest March of all-time, driven by the highest-grossing domestic release of the year so far, Captain Marvel ($354 million domestic gross in its first 24 days of release), and Us (which delivered the second-largest opening of all-time for a live-action, original feature),” said Brad Brevet, editor of the IMDbPro box office reporting service, Box Office Mojo. “April is likely to also help narrow the divide between this year and last year with highly anticipated titles such as Hellboy, Shazam! and Pet Sematary as well as Avengers: Endgame, which could once again deliver a record-breaking opening for Marvel.”
