'Avengers: Infinity War' Nears China Box Office Record With $200 Million Opening

While Avengers: Infinity War already surpassed the $1 billion threshold earlier this week, the release in China is expected to give earnings a significant boost. On Saturday, it became the second-fastest film to cross the $500 million mark at the domestic box office.

"The strength that it exerted Thanos to snap his fingers, he's so tense that if you see exactly at the film and the corruption of the gauntlet", Joe Russo stated.

Sans no competition from another tentpole, Avengers: Infinity War has topped the box office for three consecutive weekends, a veritable eternity in summer, when Hollywood tentpoles generally open one on top of another. The film also marked the coming together of several superheroes and although it is not imperative for one to watch all the films to understand Avengers: Infinity War, a little background knowledge will certainly be useful. The China debut points to the sixth-largest single territory opening of all time, on a par with the "Black Panther" debut in North America. The film is marginally behind Jurassic World which stands with the collections of $ $1.67 billion and will cross it in the upcoming days to grab the fourth position in the list.

The third Avengers sequel continues to dominate as it enters its third week at the box office. It's now the fifth highest grossing film of all time worldwide. The movie now sits at $1.606 billion worldwide and $547.8 million domestic.

Universal's Breaking In, a thriller produced by Will Packer, followed at No. 3 with $16.5 million from 2,532 cinemas. We were anticipating a little more out of this title, but it still managed to outperform the studio's expectations and almost triple its reported $6 million budget in its first three days of release.

The movie is the culmination of 10 years of filmmaking which Marvel has referred to as the "most ambitious crossover event in history", something that the Internet has latched onto and mocked relentlessly for weeks. And rounding out the top five was "A Quiet Place" with $6.4 million. The film also enjoyed a solid weekend internationally where it brought in $2.8 million from 55 markets as it passed $100 million internationally with releases in China, France and Japan still to go.
