Captain Marvel MarvelMarvel

  • "Captain Marvel" is dominating the box office, flying past $200 million domestic and $760 million worldwide over the weekend.
  • Other movies topping the box office so far this year include "Glass" and "The Upside."

"Captain Marvel" continued its box-office dominance over the weekend, raking in another $69 million to bring its domestic total past $200 million. It's also inching closer to the coveted $1 billion mark worldwide, and has made $760 million globally so far.

While "Captain Marvel" is the first true blockbuster of the year and rebounded a sluggish 2019 box office, it's not the only movie to be popular with audiences.

"How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World" and M. Night Shyamalan's "Glass" have grossed over $100 million.

The surprise hit of the year, though, is "The Upside," a remake of the French movie, "The Intouchables," starring Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart. The comedy has also grossed over $100 million and was made for $37.5 million.

It's still early, so box-office disappointments are still among the highest-grossing movies of the year. "The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part" has grossed $101 million in the US since debuting over a month ago, while its predecessor had already made over double that in the same amount of time in 2014.

James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez's big-budget "Alita: Battle Angel" has made just $82 million in the US, but its worldwide box office has kept it from being a complete disaster. It's made $394 million worldwide and had a $170 million production budget.

Business Insider will keep a running list of the highest-grossing movies in the US as 2019 continues. All numbers are based on figures from Box Office Mojo, unless otherwise stated.

Below are the 9 highest-grossing movies at the US box office in 2019, so far:

What critics said: "Henson is a gifted actress and physical comedian. She manages to hold together "What Men Want" with the sheer force of her powerful charisma, but the film around her is harried, messy and woefully underwritten." — Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
