'Avengers: Infinity War' scores second-biggest opening in China box office history

The studio's president, Kevin Feige, told the BBC (via Screen Rant) during the "Avengers: Infinity War" promotional campaign that there is a chance that Kamala will be included in the film universe after they have established Carol Danvers in her own movie.

It was certainly a powerful moment in the film, especially for Peter and Gamora's relationship, which now spans three movies. Subsequent reports said that Infinity War outpaced Avengers: Age of Ultron's pre-release sales by 1000%. It is now the 11th highest-grossing import film of all-time and will soon dethrone Ready Player One, Jurassic World and Age of Ultron in the next few days. The IMAX domestic network reported multiple sell-out screenings with IMAX representing 8 of the film's top 10 North America engagements. It ousted Universal's "The Fate of the Furious", which drew $541.9 million worldwide on its opening box office release in 2017.

$200 million opening weekend haul in China powers Avengers: Infinity War's global total to $1.05 billion. Its direct sequel, the still-officially-untitled Avengers 4, is due out in theaters May 3, 2019.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.

Salama emphasized that the vaccination operation for Ebola is far more complex than that for orally-administered polio vaccine. This is the ninth outbreak of Ebola virus disease in the DRC since the discovery of the virus in the country in 1976.

China's opening helped it make $281.3 million internationally just over the weekend. Beware, there are spoilers for Infinity War below.

"Infinity War" is now poised to pass 2015's "Jurassic World" ($1.67 billion) and take a real run at joining "Avatar", "Titanic" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" as the only movies to cross the $2 billion mark. However, I would not be at all surprised to see Avengers 4 sneak it's way into the top two when it is released next year.

"Avengers: Infinity War is a truly epic global blockbuster phenomenon that has set records across the IMAX worldwide network with China still to come", says IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond.
