Infinity War is ostensibly confirmed as the biggest opening ever in Canada, but the press release noted that the official numbers won't be out until Monday. That would give Infinity War the second largest domestic debut in cinematic history. According to Entertainment Weekly, Infinity War actually grossed an estimated $258.2 million over the weekend. Over the weekend, Gunn opened up about which decisions were his and how he contributed to Marvel's newest blockbuster.
Many superhero movies came close to breaking the record, with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice coming the closest after it recorded preview collection of $27.7 million. In India ($18.6 million), it was the biggest bow for a Western title ever and has already surpassed the entire runs of The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War.
Previously, The Fate of the Furious held the record with $541.9 million.
The blockbuster will rake in an estimated $250 million U.S. from North American ticket sales, beating the record previously held by another Disney film - Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Following that, we open things up to a spoiler discussion, so be wary of our warning in case you haven't had a chance to check out the film yet. "Fate" still holds the record for global (worldwide total minus USA domestic) with $443.2.
The Joe Russo and Anthony Russo film has become the highest opener of 2018 in India beating Bollywood films like "Baaghi 2" by earning whopping 30 crores on Day 1 of its release.
"Infinity War" took in a record $630 million worldwide, ComScore Inc. said in an email Sunday. 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. Considering Infinity War was advertised as a culmination of 10 years of Marvel movies, the internet was understandably unhappy with Brody's criticism. Fourth place went to Rampage, which earned $7 million.
