After an impressive debut at the Chinese box office, Ant-Man and the Wasp has climbed up the list for the most successful theatrical runs for Marvel Studios. The Marvel Studios sequel just opened in Japan, where it raked in $3.7 million, bringing its weekend haul up to $15.8 million, according to reports from Deadline.
Ant-Man and the Wasp has made $381.4 million in international markets, for a total of $594.9 million worldwide. In comparison, the original Ant-Man made $519.3 million. The film is doing particularly well in China, where it has already crossed the $100 million milestone.
The Meg also continues to perform in China, reaching $150.9 million after this last weekend. It currently sits at $342.3 million in international markets, while making $462.8 worldwide.

It opened in Australia to $5.4 million dollars, becoming the number one film down under, and is set to open in the United Kingdom next.
