BOX OFFICE: ANT-MAN's Debut In China Beats GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY By 60%

Most of us assumed that Marvel Studios would hold off on announcing an Ant-Man sequel until they saw how well the movie performed in China, but with Ant-Man and The Wasp now confirmed, their gamble is paying off thanks to a very strong start in the Middle Kingdom...

By the end of its run, Guardians of the Galaxy grossed an incredible $96 million in China, and now Ant-Man looks like it could end up doing similar numbers if early word from Thursday midnight screenings are anything to go by. The final Phase 3 earned $0.71 million, a figure which may not sound like a lot, but one that's 60% ahead of what the James Gunn helmed release took last year. It's too early to say whether Ant-Man's box office run in China could add another $100 million or so to the $409 million it's already taken, but it's clearly going to receive a fairly significant boost! Of course, with a sequel already in the works, this news doesn't really have all that great of an impact on the franchise's future, but it's still good news for those hoping Ant-Man will be around for a very long time to come in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie hitting the $500 million mark is something Marvel has to be hoping for anyway! Hopefully we'll hear about a DVD and Blu-ray release for Ant-Man soon too.
