It seems as though everyone and their dog has gone to see Marvel’s new super hero team-up epic, Avengers: Infinity War. The film has only been released for a short time, and yet has already broken seemingly every possible box fice record, including being the fastest film to ever break $1 billion at the box fice.
Well, Marvel’s reign terror doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon, as the film has reported massive turn-outs in international markets as well. According to Deadline, Thanos’ mad quest for power has brought in big numbers in markets such as China and India.
In China, the movie has reportedly pulled in approximately $70 million, which firmly places it as the third highest movie opening ever there, trailing only behind Monster Hunt 2 and The Fate the Furious. The film is set to quickly break the $200 million mark, which puts it on pace to beat Avengers: Age Ultron, which is currently the highest grossing MCU film in China.
In India, Infinity War took down another Disney property, The Jungle Book, to become the highest grossing debut any Western film in the country, with a take around $40 million.
Neither these totals factor into the latest grand total $1.275 billion gross for the film, which would place it firmly at the number twelve spot on the list highest grossing movies all time, but with these latest developments, the film would be pushed higher to number eight.
This is quite the payf for Marvel, as this film was ten years in the making.
