History Quiz 2 -
th Apr Avengers film record
The Marvel Avengers film series has been immensely popular in China.
The last film in the franchise (but who is to say there may be more at some stage) 'End Game' attracted over 3 million people on its opening night.
Film makers are looking increasingly to China as a lucrative market for their films. With cinema goers reducing in numbers in most countries due to increased home viewing of films, the Chinese passion for going out to watch movies is an important revenue stream. The film has already made $115 million in China.
Many people queued for hours waiting for the midnight viewing and fans were not disappointed. The film has a very loyal fan-base that has grown steadily since the first film in the series in 2008. The popularity does seem a little strange as there is no Asian lead actors and the setting is very much in the United States.
Unlike films such as 'Bohemian Rhapsody' the Chinese censors have let it through without requiring edits.
