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

With the MCU, the DC Extended Universe, Fox's Marvel Universe and other smaller franchises all keen to expand their enterprises for maximum financial success, countless new superhero movies are announced every single year, and 2018 certainly won't be an exception. If Infinity War can make that much in China the film only has to gross another $258 million around the globe in order to surpass The Force Awakens. Its direct sequel, the still-officially-untitled Avengers 4, is due out in theaters May 3, 2019.

Still showing legs at the box office is Marvel Studios' Black Panther, which grossed $1.9 million domestic in its 13 weekend in release. The IMAX domestic network reported multiple sell-out screenings with IMAX representing 8 of the film's top 10 North America engagements.

In an interview with HuffPost over the weekend, Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo discussed the fates of several popular characters following the tragic finale. The Saturday gross of $77.49 million is the best single day gross ever of all-time for a foreign film in China. It's going to pass "Jurassic World" at No. 4.

After amassing $61.8 million in domestic screens and $281.3 million from global markets in its third weekend, the running worldwide total of AIW now stands at a staggering $1.61 billion gross.

Fifth-highest global release of all-time and eighth-highest domestic release. In the video, Brolin, unfamiliar with Fortnite, notes that he didn't remember Thanos flying at any point in Infinity War, but he gladly would have done the motion capture for the dancing. Subsequent reports said that Infinity War outpaced Avengers: Age of Ultron's pre-release sales by 1000%.

The film has also become the fastest film to cross US$1 billion (S$1.34 billion) globally, with the possibility that it could hit US$2 billion by the end of its theatrical run, according to Forbes.

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.
