"Captain Marvel" Now the 7th All-Time Highest-Grossing Movie in PH

Carol Danvers' first foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe has Marvel Studios soaring to another box office success in the Philippines! On its fourth week in theaters, Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" created a new record as it now holds the 7th highest-grossing movie in Philippine history with USD11.7 million at the box-office. Indeed, "Captain Marvel" has inspired a new generation of fans in the Philippines with her story of courage, heroism, and self-discovery.

The action-adventure arrived in the Philippines last March 6 in time for the International Women’s Month, a month honoring women and celebrating their achievements. Women lifting up women is an important part of this day, and something that can be felt throughout “Captain Marvel.”

The March 6 first-day box-office performance of “Captain Marvel” had broken several records, including the Biggest Opening Day for 2019, Highest screen count for 2019, Highest Origins Opening Day and Highest Female Superhero Opening Day. And that was just the beginning.

With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together.

Brie Larson Embodies the Humanity of Carol Danvers in "Captain Marvel"

Academy Award® winner Brie Larson steps into role of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most powerful force, Carol Danvers aka “Captain Marvel.” 

“When we found out that Brie Larson might be interested in joining the MCU, we had numerous meetings and pitched her the idea for the film,” recalls producer Kevin Feige. “She was a huge fan of the character in the comic, and one of the highlights of my career at Marvel was introducing her at Comic-Con and having her come out on stage and stand with literally almost every other actor from the MCU. She was at the forefront, which was a great foreshadowing for how audiences are going to embrace Brie as this character.”

Female Super Hero Franchise Takes Flight in Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel"

With the release of “Captain Marvel,” Marvel Studios launches its highly anticipated, female-led franchise into the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Commenting on what made Captain Marvel the right choice for the newest member of the cinematic universe, producer Kevin Feige says, “We thought it was the right time to finally introduce Captain Marvel to the world. She’s one of the most popular characters and one of the most powerful characters in the comics and will now be the most powerful character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

Continuing, he adds, “We’ve always had powerful female characters and heroes in our films. But having a female Super Hero franchise title character for the first time feels overdue, and it’s something that we have been excited about for a long time and we can't wait to deliver it to the world.”

Beloved Sidekicks Benny, Metalbeard Got Your Back in "The LEGO Movie 2"

Two of the best sidekicks to take on any journey in Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The LEGO Movie 2” would be MetalBeard and Benny, played by returning stars Nick Offerman and Charlie Day.  Though they’re as different as a galleon to a rocket ship, the bottom line is, these guys just want to get the job done and help their friends.

“MetalBeard is a pirate whose body was lost in battle and who managed to cobble together a new one out of spare parts that he’s constantly replacing,” says Offerman of his character, who resembles not only a pirate but a pirate ship, with a fair amount of Swiss Army knife thrown in.  “That makes him the ultimate mechanic and very handy in a crisis when an object needs to be put together.  Hopefully, MetalBeard is around to launch a shark or a cannonball out of his arm.”

Will Arnett, Allison Brie Back as Batman & Unikitty in "The LEGO Movie 2"

Reprising their popular roles as the gravelly-voiced icon Batman and fan-favorite Unikitty in Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The LEGO Movie 2” are Will Arnett (“TMNT: Out of the Shadows”) and Allison Brie (Netflix’s “GLOW”).

If change is an issue, the last place anyone would look would be in Batman’s direction.  As he himself would surely attest, this is one rock-steady dude who does his own thing and doesn’t change for anyone.  He doesn’t even alter his color palette. It’s strictly black, and sometimes very, very dark gray.  But oh, Batman fans, there are some incredible plot twists ahead for this beloved minifigure, as the filmmakers continue to delight in messing with him.

Pratt, Banks Return as Emmet & Lucy in "The LEGO Movie 2"

Power couple Emmet and Lucy famously clicked despite vastly different personalities and skill sets in 2014’s “The LEGO Movie.”  What keeps them together is that amazing history and their real affection for each other.  

But, what threatens to separate them now is Lucy’s concern that Emmet isn’t tough enough for this harsh new reality…and Emmet’s fear that he’s going to lose her if he doesn’t do something about it, in Warner Bros. Pictures’ highly awaited sequel, “The LEGO Movie 2” starring Chris Pratt (Emmet) and Elizabeth Banks (Lucy).
