In China, the movie has reportedly pulled in approximately $70 million, which firmly places it as the third highest movie opening ever there, trailing only behind Monster Hunt 2 and The Fate of the Furious. "Over the past few months, while we were editing Infinity War, we'd take breaks to hop on and get in a few games", Joe said. Melissa McCarthy's comedy "Life of the Party" debuted in second with $18.5 million from 3,656 locations.

Pruitt, Chao to go to California to negotiate emission standards
Trump said the trade pact was being renegotiated and that Canada and Mexico did not want to lose their golden goose. California and automakers agreed to the rules in 2012, setting a single national fuel economy standard.
Disney/Marvel Studios' plan to bump up the release of "Avengers: Infinity War" (or was it Robert Downey Jr.'s idea?) a weekend earlier than originally planned has worked out perfectly. The thriller starring Gabrielle Union was only made for around $6 million, but it took in $16.5 million. This brings the estimated opening total close to $76 million.
Outside the top five, and landing in the top ten for the 13th consecutive week, is Disney and Marvel's Black Panther. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the film is the 19th movie in the cinematic universe of Marvel and showed how the super-villain Thanos stopped at no point to capture the coveted Infinity Stones. On Saturday, it became the second-fastest film to cross the $500 million mark at the domestic box office. The original DEADPOOL opened with just over $130 million and DEADPOOL 2 should crush that number.
