Avengers: Infinity War Exceeds Expectations After Opening in China

Avengers: Infinity War Exceeds Expectations After Opening in China

Generally speaking, studios take home 50 percent of domestic box office earnings (sometimes its more sometimes less, but for this example let's go with that basic number).

While Avengers: Infinity War may not have appealed to Mr Bachchan, the film has earned over Rs 200 crore at the Indian box-office to become the only Hollywood project to achieve the feat.

It is yet to open in China, one of the world's largest movie markets. Melissa McCarthy's comedy "Life of the Party" debuted in second with $18.5 million from 3,656 locations.

At this point, box office analysts now expect Avengers: Infinity War to tap out at around $1.8 billion - just shy of that elusive $2 billion milestone that has so far remained exclusive to holiday films, such as Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Another new film, "Breaking In", a thriller starring Gabrielle Union, was third at $16.8 million. First-day grosses on Friday hit $76 million.

We have always cooperated with India over information sharing pertaining to all incidents of terrorism", Nisar added. In August 2016, the Federal Investigation Agency also arrested Sufyan Zafar, the alleged financier of the attack.


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 global take). It was a good start for the low-budget film, which cost an estimated $6 million to make.

Outside the top five, and landing in the top ten for the 13th consecutive week, is Disney and Marvel's Black Panther. On Saturday, it became the second-fastest film to cross the $500 million mark at the domestic box office. Overall business this weekend should be about the same pace as the 2017 frame, when the second weekend of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" led with $65.3 million, followed by the openings of "Snatched" with $19.5 million and "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" with $15.4 million.

The Universal Pictures release is just the latest in a long string of successful collaborations with producer Will Packer, who also produced "Girl's Trip" and the "Ride Along" films.
