It's a good strategy as long as they've got a good product. Last year, the terrible word-of-mouth from overseas on Battleship all but killed any chances it had at a decent domestic opening last year (it was never gonna be a hit, but still). Thankfully, Marvel doesn't seem likely to make anything as horrid as that movie any time soon, so this strategy works very well for them, lol.
