'Avengers: Infinity War' scores second-biggest opening in China box office history

Team Ups! More Team Ups Team Ups! More Team Ups

As for those who didn't make it, the directors confirmed that both Lady Sif and Betty Ross are now toast, though the latter was at one time rumored to appear in Infinity War.

It was certainly a powerful moment in the film, especially for Peter and Gamora's relationship, which now spans three movies.

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. That debut finally took place this weekend and the numbers were absolutely extraordinary. The sequel is expected to have a domestic opening north of $150 million.

Disney/Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War", which introduces reigning baddie Thanos (Josh Brolin) in full, is the biggest superhero movie ever, before adjusting for inflation.

So far, the film has earned $1.6 billion dollars worldwide.

Still showing legs at the box office is Marvel Studios' Black Panther, which grossed $1.9 million domestic in its 13 weekend in release. No matter how this battle shakes up, Disney is guaranteed to have the third and fourth highest grossing films of all time so I am going to guess that the Disney execs aren't sweating it all that much.


Now, AIW is the fifth highest-grossing film of all-time in global markets, only behind Avatar ($2.02 billion), Titanic ($1.52 billion), Furious 7 ($1.16 billion), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($1.13 billion). With the Marvel Cinematic Universe recently crossing $15 billion in worldwide box office receipts, the moviegoing public's hunger for comic book films seemingly knows no bounds. That means that the opening weekend for The Fate of the Furious represented roughly 49% of it's overall China gross.

Avengers: Infinity War is now in theaters.

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

Now that Infinity War is entertaining fans in cinemas around the world, certain details regarding the film's inner workings are starting to come to light.

As for cracking the top two, I don't envision Infinity War pulling it off.
