has now completed its first day in various territories across the world, and to the surprise of no one, the film is getting off to a phenomenally strong start.
Deadline reports that after one day in cinemas, the Avengers: Infinity War
sequel’s box office total sits at $169 million. This figure can mostly be attributed to the movie’s record-breaking first day in China, where the flick managed to take in $107.5 million. The next best Wednesday launch was in Korea, where Endgame
broke the all-time record for best non-holiday opening day with its $8.4 million haul.
In all markets, Endgame
is tracking ahead of Infinity War – and, in some cases, by a pretty wide margin. In France, for example, Endgame
outperformed last year’s release by 64%. Over in Germany, meanwhile, the film was a whopping 95% ahead, but the biggest improvement was in Hong Kong, where Endgame
was up 98% on Infinity War.
