Mild Spoiler Warning: The article contains minor details on the movie currently playing in local cinemas.

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 26) — The Philippines is officially part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Bangkok-based production firm Indochina Productions confirmed on its Facebook page on Thursday what early Pinoy moviegoers saw on "Avengers: Infinity War" - the world-famous Banaue Rice Terraces in the country's north that plays a crucial role in the development of one of the characters in the movie.

"Super Proud of our team who helped on the aerial unit for AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR in The Philippines :)," read the company's post on its Facebook page.

"Sorry that they did not put everyone's name on the end credits, but we know who you are!!!"

A spokesman from Walt Disney Philippines confirmed that the VFX (visual effects) plate of that scene was done in the Philippines.

Biggest opening day for any film in PH

"Avengers: Infinity War" smashed two records in the Philippine box office on Wednesday - the highest grossing film on opening day ever and biggest single-day gross box office for any film in the country.

The movie by the Russo Brothers grossed a massive P141.6 million (USD 2.7 million) in the Philippines on its opening day, according to Walt Disney Philippines. "Avengers: Infinity War" opened its first day on 829 screens nationwide with screening schedules starting as early as 8 am.

The studio said it shattered the records of the live action adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast" in 2017, currently the highest grossing film of all time in the Philippines. No figures were given as of posting.

The movie, which assembles superheroes across the Marvel Cinematic Universe against the genocidal villain Thanos, is on a record-breaking track as it approaches its opening weekend.
