Refresh for latest: Disney/Marvels Ant-Man And The Wasp buzzed into China this weekend, winging to a $68M start there. The 4th best MCU opening ever in the market is also the 3rd highest of the year for a Hollywood movie in China. It zaps the worldwide AM&TW total up to $544.1M, and the international box office cume to $332.6M with Japan still to come. Including China and 27 other offshore markets, the full weekend was $71.2M and now sets the critters running 35% above the original film.

The China debut on the Paul Rudd sequel came in 66% ahead of the first Ant-Man and included $7.2M from IMAX, making it the best August weekend launch ever for the format there.

Also in China, Warner Bros/Gravity Pictures The Meg clenched super midweeks, ranking No. 1 Monday-Thursday. Over the weekend, however, the shark jumped aside and landed No. 3 behind the Marvel insects and new local entry Big Brother, starring Donnie Yen. The Megs cume in China is $143M a few days before Mission: Impossible – Fallout jumps into the market.

The Meg continues to show its teeth outside China, too, crossing both the $300M overseas and $400M worldwide milestones this session. The weekend was worth $32.7M in 65 markets including No. 1 openings in 9 out of 10 new hubs and maintaining No. 1 in 17 holdover markets. The sci-fi shark has also taken over from Rampages sci-fi ape to become the top WB title of 2018 across Latin America.

Warner Bros Pictures

Elsewhere, Warner Bros Crazy Rich Asians hit its first South East Asian markets. The domestic juggernaut grossed $6M in 18 markets including seeing records in Singapore and Malaysia where it had the biggest openings ever for a romantic comedy. The film is set in Singapore and was shot there. Some local backlash in recent weeks over representation appears not to have dented the debut.

Also, Disney/Pixars Incredibles 2 has now cumed $1.141B worldwide to move into the 19th slot on the all-time chart. In the UK it is the 2nd biggest animated release ever.
