'Avengers: Infinity War,' buoyed by China, becomes the biggest superhero movie ever

  • Avengers Infinity war Doctor Strange knew what would happen

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.

IMAX locations in 19 territories including Korea, Italy, Brazil, Mexicoand the UAE all reported their best opening weekends ever with more than 25 markets recording their best IMAX Marvel openings including India, the UK, Japan, France, Germany and Argentina.

It was certainly a powerful moment in the film, especially for Peter and Gamora's relationship, which now spans three movies. The fourth "Avengers" film is due out next year.

We still don't know exactly what the future of the MCU will look like after the events of Avengers: Infinity War, but at least you can stock up some great films from its first decade of existence. That debut finally took place this weekend and the numbers were absolutely extraordinary.

On Saturday, AIW recorded a whopping 491 million yuan ($77.49 million), making it the second highest single-day total ever in the mainland, only behind Monster Hunt 2's 546 million yuan ($86.18 million) opening day.




Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has hinted that the shape-shifting superhero, whose alter-ego is a young Muslim woman named Kamala Khan, could hit the big screen after the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4 film.

So far, the film has earned $1.6 billion dollars worldwide. Should Thanos and Star-Lord have had a dance-off in the recent Avengers film?

Incidentally, the previous all-time movie record-holder was from the same franchise, with the original Marvel's The Avengers grossing S$13.7 million in 2012. Count on it. Will it reach "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" at No. 3? That means that the opening weekend for The Fate of the Furious represented roughly 49% of it's overall China gross. 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. With that increase applied I get another $202 million for Infinity War in China.

"Infinity War", with $1.06 billion overseas, is also the first superhero film to gross more than $1 billion overseas.
