Disney: 'Infinity War' Draws $200M in China Debut

Adjust Comment Print

If you haven't seen Avengers: Infinity War by now, you should really rectify that.

That marks the second-largest opening weekend in China for the Marvel Studios film, in terms of local currency.

It must be noted that import films such as Ready Player One, Tomb Raider, Pacific Rim: Uprising and Rampage opened bigger in China than the American market this year.

Right off the bat you can safely assume that Avengers: Infinity War (which is only in it's third week of release) has another $70 million in the tank, so it will easily hop over Jurassic World to take the number 4 all-time slot. It ousted Universal's "The Fate of the Furious", which drew $541.9 million worldwide on its opening box office release in 2017.

Tottenham player ratings: Spurs beat Leicester at their own game
Vardy then made it 4-4 as Mahrez timed his pass perfectly and Vardy smashed home his 20th goal of the PL season in style. Any Spurs fan who wouldn't have taken that in a season where the club were forced to play at a Wembley is a fool.

Infinity War posted the biggest opening days in South Korea ($39.2 million), Mexico ($25.1 million), Brazil ($18.8 million), the Philippines ($12.5 million), Thailand ($10 million), Indonesia ($9.6 million) and Malaysia ($8.4 million).

After successful directing turns with Captain America: Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, Joe and Anthony Russo are going back to their roots on television with their latest collaboration.

China's opening helped it make $281.3 million internationally just over the weekend.

The film has supplanted the lifetime global total of films such as Jurassic World ($1.019 billion) and The Fate of the Furious ($1.010 billion), courtesy of the extraordinary opening in China, as of May 13.

"Avengers 3" passed $500 million at the domestic box office over the weekend for a current domestic gross of $547,829,103. Subsequent reports said that Infinity War outpaced Avengers: Age of Ultron's pre-release sales by 1000%.

Avengers: Infinity War is now in theaters.

It's next hurdle is Star Wars: The Force Awakens at $2.06 billion.

Nuggets hoping for a lot of luck at National Basketball Association draft lottery
Sacramento and Phoenix were among eight teams which blatantly positioned themselves to get a high pick in this year's lottery. Crazier stuff has happened, though, and adding another blue-chip prospect to either one of these teams seems nearly unfair.
