The Walt Disney Co. estimated on Saturday that the Marvel Comics superhero movie earned $75.8 million domestically for its opening on Friday, the eighth biggest day in industry history.

Disney now estimates that the movie will earn between $190 million and $210 million for the four-day Presidents Day weekend that started on Thursday.

Besides the strong box office, the movie has been a critical success.
