    Dr. Strange was not a summer film, so it was not impacted by the extended delay.

    However, Ant-Man is a promising statistic (it was at the time Marvel's 2nd largest opening in China next to Age of Ultron) but with predicting box office I'd rather aim modestly and leave room to be surprised. It'll be interesting to see where it ends up.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming made over $70 million opening weekend in China (I've seen both $70.3M and $70.8M cited). It's made over $820M worldwide already. Depending on how well it holds up in China, it might become the highest world wide draw for a Spider-Man film of all time (granted, that is not taking into account inflation). Not bad for a film some write off early in its release.

    It's now the 2nd highest grossing of the 6 modern S-M's. It had the 2nd lowest budget. It has the 2nd highest critical acclaim.

    S-M 1.3 and 2.2 killed their series because of low critical acclaim even though they made a lot of money (because of how well their predecessors did). So, the new S-M 3.1 is in the perfect spot to keep the new series of Holland's S-M going with high gross and high praise.

    Talk about the power of the Chinese Market, this movie, Wolf Warriors 2, suddenly popped into 4th place on the global gross list for 2017 at $866 million from China alone.

    Also... use that list to laugh at anyone who says "superhero movie fatigue" or "sequel fatigue" or "reboot fatigue". Yes, there are superhero and sequel and reboot movies that fail, but there are enough that do well that it's not about it being a superhero, sequel, or reboot movie. And S-M: Homecoming is all three!
