Detective Chinatown Beats Avengers: Endgame for Single Mkt Opening Record

 

While the U.S. box office is sputtering along, a new single-market record comes to us out of China this weekend. Detective Chinatown 3 opened for an amazing $397M during this Chinese New Year weekend which not only makes it the highest opening weekend in China, topping Avengers: Endgame, but it also tops Endgame’s U.S. opening weekend of $357M back in April of 2019.

While the box office numbers have been struggling, an outing like lets industry execs conclude this may be a positive sign that once the pandemic is under control, theaters can reopen and new product is available, audiences are likely to return in large numbers.
