Avengers: Endgame sets opening day record in China
Avengers: Endgame isn’t even playing in domestic theaters and it’s already breaking records worldwide. Walt Disney Studios reports that the film brought in an estimated $107.2 million (719 million Renminbi) on its opening day (including Midnight shows on Tuesday). This marks the highest opening day of all-time in China (including both local and foreign features), beating the previous record held by Monster Hunt 2 and eclipsing Infinity War‘s $67 million opening in the Middle Kingdom.
Last year’s Infinity War saw the titular superhero team take the fight to Thanos in order to stop his attempt at exterminating half of the universe’s population with the Infinity stones. But it was to no avail, as he was able to successfully collect them all and snap his fingers, wiping out half of all life from existence in a cloud of ash.
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, Endgame.
Confirmed cast members for the fourth film include Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Sean Gunn, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Katherine Langford and Josh Brolin as Thanos.
The epic final battle between the heroes and Thanos will burst onto the big screen on April 26.
