The third installment of the Avengers movie franchise ascended to top the box office of China last weekend to become the biggest grossing Marvel movie in the middle kingdom. Ever since the release of Avengers: Infinity War, it has smashed all sorts of records.
One of the most prominent achievement was capturing the highest grossing opening weekend of all time domestically. In the opening weekend, this Marvel title also bagged the most prominent movie opening worldwide. Scoring the biggest opening weekend was particularly impressive given that it had not been released in China at that point.
This title, which has almost all of the biggest Marvel superheroes brought in an estimated $77.6 million in Thursday night preview showings and Friday grosses in China. It broke another Chinese box office record as it brought in $47.5 million in the ticket presales, beating Monster Hunt 2’s $47 million presales record. The movie’s debut in China came two weeks after the US debut. This delay might have helped in driving up demand.
Much to nobody’s surprise, this 19th Marvel flick has broken a long line of records. According to LA Times, it is the third highest successful Hollywood import ever as it has brought in $300.6 million in just ten days. The strong audience reviews backed this staggering achievement.
