'Avengers: Infinity War' shatters global box-office record in opening weekend
As was expected, 'Avengers: Infinity War' has proved to be a juggernaut at the global box office. Topping 'The Fate of the Furious' ($530 million), the Marvel film has emerged the highest opening weekend grosser of all time at the worldwide box office. 'Avengers: Infinity War' raked in $630 million (approximately Rs 4181 crore) in the first three days of its release.
Featuring nearly all the Marvel superheroes, 'Avengers: Infinity War' also became the highest North American opening weekend grosser. It amassed a humongous $250 million at the US box office, surpassing 'Star Wars: Force Awakens' which opened to $248 million in 2015. 'Avengers: Infinity War' is the 19th film in what is known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
'Avengers: Infinity War' took the biggest opening of 2018 at the Indian box office, beating Tiger Shroff's 'Baaghi 2'. It raked in Rs. 31.30 crore and Rs. 30.50 crore on Friday and Saturday respectively. The early estimates suggest its Sunday collection to be in the range Rs. 32-34 crore. Therefore, the opening weekend total of 'Avengers: Infinity War' will be around Rs. 94 crore.
