AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Has Been Beaten At The Japanese Box Office By DETECTIVE CONAN

Avengers: Infinity War may be dominating the box office in most territories, but the acclaimed Marvel film was topped in Japan by the new Detective Conan anime movie. Find out more after the jump...

In what may come as shocking news for fans, Avengers: Infinity War was topped in the Japanese box office by the anime film, Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer.

The movie has stomped on the Avengers to come out on top in box office sales for its third week in a row. This is the 22nd Conan feature film and it sold a whopping 453,000 tickets over the weekend of April 28-29, which was 16,000 more than Avengers: Infinity War did in its opening weekend in Japan.

What is interesting is that despite the many promotional efforts by Disney to hit the Japanese audience, even doing a superhero collaboration with the popular fan-favorite anime of My Hero Academia's characters, Walt Disney's third Avengers film was not able to make much impact in the Land of the Rising Sun. The Marvel epic earned a small 672 million yen (which equals about 6155633 US Dollars) from the 437,000 tickets sales on its opening weekend, which is 16.4% down from the opening weekend of Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015.

Here is a small glimpse at the collaboration between My Hero Academia and the Avengers. If you want to check out the full thing, click here!
