    I saw it this afternoon.

    I loved it, and it honestly surprised me, which is something a Marvel movie hasn't done in a long time.

    I think I'm going to wait until at least next week to see it: I hate crowded theaters.

    Good choice. My kids forced me to see it this week. We had had a crying kid and people doing way too much talking during the movie. FYI I would wait 3 weeks of you want to avoid the crowd.

    In week one it make $725 mil. Expect a very similar week 2. Same time next week I expect the movie to be close to $1.5 bil. The following weekend it opens in China. I expect the movie to be close to $2 bil by week 3.

    Crazy how much Marvel movies can make.

    Is this another one of those action hero films, which manage to have no politics and therefore are great for the Chinese market, and have a lot of fighting and action and you don't need to think for 2 hours, also great for the Chinese market?

    I still think $2 billion is a bit out of reach. While Infinity War beat The Force Awakens' opening weekend numbers, I think that Infinity War will lose numbers a bit more quickly once Deadpool 2 comes out. TFA was the #1 movie in its fourth weekend, but I don't think Infinity War will outdo Deadpool 2.

    Infinity War does definitely have a shot, though, with such a huge opening weekend. If it can maintain pretty well for the next couple of weeks, and especially if it goes over well in China, it might yet hit $2 billion.

    It's not going to come anywhere near Avatar, though. I still don't understand why that movie made so much money, but I think it's out of reach until ticket prices go up a bit more.

    From what I've read, the Marvel movies have done pretty well in China. Avengers: Age of Ultron made over $240 million there. And it looks like Deadpool 2 isn't going to be playing in China, so it won't have that competition.
