'Avengers: Infinity War' tops North American box office with $250M

Kevin Feige

But both intergalactic behemoths belong to Disney, which now owns nine of the top 10 opening weekends ever - six belonging to Marvel releases.

The movie's $250 million weekend passes the all-time best domestic opening weekend held by "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" with $247.9 million in 2015.

The film has also brought in $380 million internationally, for a total of $630 million worldwide, which is a new global record.

The latest entrant from Marvel Studios, Avengers: Infinity War, has posted the highest first day box office collection in India by far this year with its gross box office collections of Rs 40.13 crore.

On a global scale, the movie has already taken over $630million (£450m), and has broken the US box offices by becoming the highest global opening weekend with a staggering $250m (£180m).

That topped 'The Fate of the Furious, ' the eighth installment of the high-octane action series starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez that opened with more than $530 million globally in 2017.

In this third Avengers film, the heroes must stop the universe's most dangerous being, Thanos, before he can gather the six legendary infinity stones, which would make him basically unstoppable.

The move earned $11.4 million in its first two days in South Korea and performed well in Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Central America, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and the United Arab Emirates too.

Filipinos who have seen "Avengers: Infinity War" were left wondering why the end scene was so familiar. Greg Foster, head of entertainment for IMAX Corp, said the success of Marvel stands apart from Hollywood's other mega franchises. That's the rumour that's doing the rounds as viewers believe they've spotted the actor's distinctive voice at the very start of the Marvel superhero juggernaut. "It is an amazing wealth of creative material to pull from". "Infinity War was the culmination of 10 years of developing the universe and characters that people care about".

And if all else fails, I could don my Iron Man suit and blast into outerspace for a bit of peace and quiet. In some ways, I'm still trying to process it. Maybe Thanos just wants to live in peace now that what he set out to do is finished.

"The opening weekend numbers are a testament to 'Avengers: Infinity War' creating a cinematic milestone".
