Ant-Man and the Wasp has earned an estimated $24 million in its Thursday and Friday opening weekend box office, according to Forbes.

This means the sequel beat out both Black Panther and Spider-Man: Homecoming's Friday Chinese box office numbers. The only Marvel Studios films with better Friday box office numbers in China are Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, and Captain America: Civil War - all of which featured the entire Avengers team.

2015's Ant-Man opened to $42,770,000 in its first weekend at the Chinese box office. Forbes predicts Ant-Man and the Wasp will gross up to $75 million in its first weekend.

Ant-Man and the Wasp's overseas box office total currently stands at $257 million, with $215 million in domestic box office receipts.

Ant-Man and the Wasp opens in Japan, its final market, August 31.
