'Avengers: Infinity War' Dominates Box Office Again After Massive China Debut

Everyone Who Lived and Who Died in Avengers: Infinity War 'Avengers: Infinity War' is on-track to have China's biggest opening weekend box-office in history
Ivan Hill | 14 May, 2018, 04:28

Melissa McCarthy's comedy "Life of the Party" opened to $18.5 million while Gabrielle Union's thriller "Breaking In" came in third with $16.5 million. The first summer blockbuster of 2018 earned an estimated $61.8 million domestically, and its worldwide numbers are even better after opening in China.

Of course, "Avengers: Infinity War" still reigned supreme, taking in another $61.8 million domestically.

"Infinity War" is the second Marvel film to garner more than 10 million views in Korea after "Age of Ultron" sold 10,490,000 tickets in 2015.

Monster Hunt 2 earned the box-office record for an opening weekend in February, when it rang up US$185 million.

Marvel's latest film Avengers: Infinity War broke numerous records to become one of the highest grossing films of all time. 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.

In second is Warner Bros. and New Line's Life of the Party, delivering an estimated $18.5 million.

The results were mixed for a pair of smaller films targeting Mother's Day audiences. That's a solid start for a film that cost a modest $6 million to make. It made an estimated $343 million at the foreign box office overall this weekend, more than half of which is from China.

Among holdovers, MGM and Pantelion Films' remake Overboard placed No. 4 in its second outing with $10.1 million after declining a narrow 31 percent.

Internationally films take anywhere from 25-30 percent depending on where it has been released and what deal the studio has brokered, for example, China only gives studios 25 percent of grosses (for the sake of this article we will be using a 30 percent worldwide take).

Outside the top five, and landing in the top ten for the 13th consecutive week, is Disney and Marvel's Black Panther. The film will expand to 350 theaters next weekend. The box office will get into the full summer movie season swing when "Deadpool 2" opens next weekend to kick off a constant string of big releases.

"This is a typical Mother's Day weekend with a big blockbuster in the mix and some counter programming thrown in for good measure as we await the arrival of "Deadpool 2" next week", said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian.
