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

Adjust Comment Print

With a domestic gross of almost $553 million, Avengers: Infinity War has made almost $1.639 billion dollars in less than three weeks. Infinity War, directed by the Russo brothers from the Captain America trilogy, has grossed almost $700 million worldwide in its opening weekend and is set to break every record it can.

It also beat the £51.9 million taken in 2012 by Marvel Avengers Assemble to become the most successful Marvel movie ever in the UK.

With these opening weekend numbers, AIW has already surpassed Marvel's previous best finishes including Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Iron Man 3 and Doctor Strange.

A fourth Avengers film has been scheduled for release in one year. It's going to pass "Jurassic World" at No. 4. We'd love for Lady Thor to rise up and for Portman to actually be an action hero a la Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

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

Fifth-highest global release of all-time and eighth-highest domestic release.

The Disney release earned $62 million domestic, topping the weekend gross chart for the third week in a row.

The leaked details have it rumored that the Avengers go back in time to retrieve the Infinity Stones and form their own Infinity Gauntlet.

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is known to speak his mind on Twitter and while it is mostly amusing, this time he has admitted he didn't understand Avengers: Infinity War, in all honesty. Within 11 days, it became the fastest film to hit $1 billion in global sales, besting "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which hit $1 billion in global sales.

The Disney/Marvel blockbuster is now also the top film of 2018, surpassing Black Panther's earnings of $9.7 million.

"Infinity War's" run of weekend titles should end this weekend, when "Deadpool 2" opens.
