(Newser) Captain Marvel romped through the box office for a second weekend in a row, chalking up $69 million domestically for another first-place finish and some pretty eye-popping overall numbers. The Brie Larson-led flick now has a total of $760 million worldwide, and the Hollywood Reporter notes that there's little doubt it will cross the $1 billion mark. Coming in at a distant second was Wonder Park with $16 million—a somewhat disappointing return on a movie that cost $100 million to make. Turning out a better return on a $7 million budget was Five Feet Apart in third place with $13.2 million. (Read more box office stories.)
