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

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

If you haven't seen Avengers: Infinity War by now, you should really rectify that. It ousted Universal's "The Fate of the Furious", which drew $541.9 million worldwide on its opening box office release in 2017.

"Avengers: Infinity War" happens to be the sequel to 2012's Marvel's The Avengers and 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Just two and a half weeks after opening in cinemas here, Avengers: Infinity War has become the highest-grossing movie in Singapore box office history, raking in $14.3 million at the box office. It's going to pass "Jurassic World" at No. 4.

Also hoping to benefit from the Mother's Day timing was Overboard, which earned $10.1 million to take fourth place after its debut at No. 2 behind Avengers last weekend. 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. It's also the first superhero film to breach the $1 billion mark in worldwide total, besting Ultron's $946 million global takings and The Avengers' $895 million.

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. It now stands at the eight-largest all-time domestic release.

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

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

Blockbuster Black Panther hung on with an nearly $2 million take in its 13th week on release to take ninth spot, boosting its worldwide haul to a mega $1.34 billion. It crossed the big billion-dollar threshold in record time, and it looks like Deadpool 2 is eyeing a solid opening weekend for itself.
