Avengers: Endgame

The Avengers: Endgame box office run has begun, and it’s off to a hell of a start in China. Variety reports that the film earned $102 million in its first day in the country. This is a record with ease; the previous record was Chinese film Monster Hunt 2 which opened to a first day of $59 million. It’s also worth noting that this is the total as of 9 PM local time.

The film accounted for 99% of the titles sold on Wednesday in the country, and accounted for 83% of all screenings. Some theaters had a screening of the film starting every fifteen minutes, and the film is expected to bring in a total of $521 million in China by the end of its run, which would blow way past The Fate of the Furious’ record for a non-Chinese film at $360 million. Endgame could pass $300 million in China by Sunday.
