'Infinity War' breaks box office record in Vietnam


Have you seen the latest superhero film that all of them are now hooked on?

The recent movie of Disney and Marvel superhero mash-up is a huge blockbuster that changed the yearly box office. However, a number of high-profile contracts are set to end with that film, meaning the studio will need to introduce new characters to replace popular existing ones - and Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore, for one, is excited about the studio's Phase Four characters. In the first five days, "Avengers: Infinity War" already acquired VND100 billion ($4.4 million) and was the fastest film to cross this mark in Vietnam.

Although the weekly cumulative figures for Infinity War won't be officially confirmed until Thursday afternoon, the New Zealand Screen Association's box-office report from the past weekend estimated its reported official haul up until Sunday night as $8,900,503, edging just ahead of original Avengers movie's $8,818,551, recorded in 2012.

All these events happened without the help of China, the world's second-biggest movie market. Adding up the $9.3 million earned in previews, the film has an estimated total of $76 million in China. "Infinity War" now has a global total of $1.665 billion, about $6 million shy of "Jurassic World's" global mark. By 10 p.m in China, the film grossed $66 million on its first day, according to China Box Office.

Prior to the film's Chinese release, it was uncertain whether "Infinity War" would have the legs to reach $2 billion, especially considering that its box office performance will start tailing off significantly as "Deadpool 2" arrives in theaters this weekend followed by "Solo: A Star Wars Story" the weekend after.
