Venom has finally opened in China and the figures are staggering. The monster hit SciFi earned a whopping $34.2 million on its first day in China, including a $2.5m midnight preview gross.
The opening day is ahead of Captain America: Civil War ($30m in 2016), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($33m in 2015), Transformers: Age of Extinction ($30m in 2014) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($33m in 2016). It has the second-biggest day for any superhero movie ever in China, ahead of Ant-Man and the Wasp ($24m), Spider-Man: Homecoming ($21.6m) and Black Panther ($22.7m).
Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened on a Sunday with $10 million and eventually nabbed $94m, but that Sunday debut (May 4, 2014) makes it an unuseful comparison at the moment. But either way, at this juncture Venom, is bigger than Spider-Man in China.
Venom is probably going to end up earning more at the worldwide box office than Solo: A Star Wars Story ($393 million), Ant-Man and the Wasp ($621m), Justice League ($659m), Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($709m in 2014), Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($714m in 2014) and possibly X-Men: Days of Future Past ($748m in 2014).
