It opened on Wednesday, April 25, in 43 territories and already earned $95 million. One notable exception is China, where it debuts May 11.

Disney and Marvel continue to push the superhero envelope at the box office, with Avengers: Infinity War delivering up their latest victory. Rivals avoided the weekend, meaning the Marvel superhero mash-up is facing no competition from other new releases. "Thor: Ragnarok" opened even bigger. The lion's share belongs to "Black Panther", which returned to the top five this weekend with $4.5 million, bringing its domestic total to $688 million.
