The epic action-adventure achieved the stunning feat with a gross of P730.1 million, outpacing Disney’s 2017 live-action “Beauty and the Beast” whose entire run of P677.1 million formerly held the record.
It’s worth noting that the top six films ever released in the Philippines were all from Disney. Beside the aforementioned two, the rest are “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Marvel’s The Avengers” and “Iron Man 3.”
Earlier Sunday, “Avengers: Infinity War” already shattered the all-time biggest opening weekend record with a five-day opening weekend gross of a breathtaking P650.1 million.
Along the way, the film also left previous daily records in the dust, including biggest Saturday at P151.8 million and biggest Sunday at P148.3 million.
“Avengers: Infinity War” rolled out in 849 screens across the country, with an estimate of over 2.4 million admissions.
