While Hollywood films are notorious for making most of their Chinese revenue on their opening weekend and falling off quickly after, "Infinity War" will still be the blockbuster of choice in that country for the next few weekends as "Deadpool 2" does not have a Chinese release date and "Star Wars" is not almost as popular in the Middle Kingdom as the rest of the world. Have you seen the latest superhero film that all of them are now hooked on?
On one side DC Extended Universe is struggling to stay afloat at the box office, on the other hand, Marvel Cinematic Universe is breaking records with each of their releases.
The recent movie of Disney and Marvel superhero mash-up is a huge blockbuster that changed the yearly box office. The film is arriving right on the heels of Avengers: Infinity War turning out to be a Blockbuster and that has ensured that audience interest in Hollywood cinema will only continue this Summer. The event stole the record of "The Force Awakens", making the movie have the title of the most prominent opening in history. With the staggering business of $ 1.675 billion, it has shattered the lifetime collections of Jurassic World ($1.671 billion) to become the fourth highest worldwide grosser of all time.
The highest grossing films for the period to 13 May 2018 in the United Kingdom were "Avengers: Infinity War", "Black Panther" and "The Greatest Showman". By 10 p.m in China, the film grossed $66 million on its first day, according to China Box Office.

Even with the presence of fellow crowdpleaser Deadpool 2 in multiplexes from today, it is hard to see Infinity not eclipsing both those two titles and the 10th-placed The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug ($9,401,735) easily, especially since it earned an estimated $927,142 between Thursday and Sunday last week.
Infinity War was reported to have a global gross of $1.638 billion yesterday (May 14, 2018). The film is already the highest grossing Hollywood film in the country and has earned more than Rs 200 crore, which even most of the Hindi films find hard to breach. Analysts have predicted that the movie will certainly make its way to the top, earning $1.8 billion to possibly $2 billion.
Deadpool 2 is set to open quite well at the Box Office.
