Disney soars high in Philippine cinemas with Captain Marvel and Dumbo

Filipinos enjoyed an action-packed first week with the highly-anticipated release of Marvel Studio’s Captain Marvel. The first female-led film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) broke records locally as its five-day opening weekend ranked as the all-time 4th Biggest in Philippine history, Biggest Opening Day for 2019, Highest Screen Count for 2019, Highest Origins Opening Day and Highest Female Superhero Opening Day. It is also the highest first stand-alone character MCU opening weekend, and biggest March opening weekend. Globally,

Captain Marvel stays at No. 1 in its second weekend, with a box office total of $760.2M to date. This March 27, another Disney film is heading into cinemas nationwide—the live-action reimagining of the 1941 animated feature which follows the classic story of the giant elephant with big ears, Dumbo. The beloved children’s tale returns to soar to new heights with visionary director, Tim Burton, leading an all-star cast to bring to life a heartwarming adventure where differences are celebrated, family is cherished, and dreams take flight.

Dumbo is one of the many live-action films that Disney has lined up for its families this year. The entertainment studio is well-loved by fans of all ages for its unparalleled storytelling that showcases heart, hope, and love for family. Its first full-length animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, was released in 1937, and since then, the Walt Disney Studio has been bringing quality movies to the market.

Following the release of Captain Marvel and Dumbo this month, Disney will be bringing an exciting summer with the much-awaited Avengers: Endgame and Disney Princess remake, Aladdin, coming out in April and May, respectively.
