Avengers: Infinity War Breaks Multiple Opening Weekend Records

The New Yorker movie reviewer Richard Brody wasn't a big fan of Infinity War, with one of his biggest grievances being that it relied too much on the groundwork set in the movies that came before it.

The global opening of $380 million, which doesn't include China, represents the second-highest worldwide opening ever.

The film, which brings toger nearly all superheroes of Marvel Comics, has also achieved this weekend best premiere of US history by raising 250 million dollars (206 million euros).

Leading all foreign markets with $42.2 million was the U.K./Ireland, where Infinity War now boasts the third-biggest launch of all time, including the biggest Saturday ever. Today, Infinity War set two more huge box office records.

Walt Disney Co.'s "Avengers: Infinity War" kicked off the summer movie season with the second-biggest domestic debut in history. That shatters the record for biggest worldwide opening held by Universal's "The Fate of the Furious", which made $541 million for its global opening past year. The blockbuster film also earned $380 million overseas, where it has opened nearly everywhere worldwide, Disney said.

Avengers: Infinity War now owns the highest opening weekend record in India beating Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat" by a sizeable margin. The film is leading the Box Office after Baahubali 2: The Conclusion which made approx Rs 37.53 crore advance booking deals. Avengers ' earnings: Infinity War, in addition, are counted without money from China, where film will premiere on May 11. This number could fluctuate when an official tally comes in on Monday. With this launch, the lifetime gross for the 19 MCU films totals over $15.5 billion worldwide. The lion's share belongs to "Black Panther", which returned to the top five this weekend with $4.5 million, bringing its domestic total to $688 million.

You couldn't have expected anything lesser from a film that brings Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hulk, Thor, Black Panther, Starlord, Spiderman and all their allies together to fight the big bad guy, Thanos.
