The only market that did not bow over the record-shattering launch session was Russia which, natch, also set a new benchmark on Monday. With $7.8M, this is the biggest opening day ever there and is 59% above Avengers: Infinity War which debuted on a Thursday.

Not included in the totals above is China’s Tuesday which is estimated at $37.3M (RMB 250M), lifting the local cume to $386.4M. It will overtake The Fate Of The Furious as the No. 1 Hollywood movie ever in the market tomorrow.

Chinese ticketing platform Maoyan has also increased its lifetime prediction on the Disney/Marvel marvel, now projecting a jaw-dropping RMB 4.08B ($606M) locally. Should this Avengers series-ender ultimately cross the RMB 4B threshold, it would become only the third film ever to do so, behind homegrown hits Wolf Warrior 2 and The Wandering Earth.

Wednesday in China kicks off an extended four-day holiday leading into the weekend where Sunday May 5 is a workday. Elsewhere, the May 1 holiday will be a factor in several key markets throughout Europe as well as Latin America and Asia Pacific. Japan, which saw a nice jump on Monday, is celebrating Golden Week.

The Top 10 markets through Monday are: China ($349.1M), UK ($60.7M), Korea ($50.7M), Mexico ($35.8M), Australia ($33.5M), India ($32M), Brazil ($30.2M), Germany ($28.8M), France ($26.9M) and Italy ($20.7M).
