‘Avengers: Infinity War’ is The Second Highest Box Office Debut of All Time
Just a few days after premiering, Avengers: Infinity War is already breaking box office records.
According to reports from Variety, the move has made $245 million in its first weekend at the box office and has now become the second highest debut at the box office of all time.
To nobody’s surprise, “Avengers: Infinity War” is already off to a record breaking start.
The Marvel powerhouse looks to open in North America with $250 million from 4,474 locations, which would land it the highest domestic debut of all time. This number could fluctuate when an official tally comes in on Monday.
That would be enough to surpass previous title holder “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which bowed with $248 million in 2015 and went on to make over $936.6 million domestically.
“Infinity War” joins the company of “The Force Awakens,” “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Jurassic World,” “The Avengers” and “Black Panther” as one of six films in history to cross the $200 million mark in their debuts.
The latest superhero title scored the highest opening for a Marvel film, surpassing the original “Avengers’” opening of $207.4 million. Its sequel, “Age of Ultron,” launched with $191 million.
This also marks the highest opening weekend ever for a Marvel movie.
The record of the biggest movie debut of all time belongs to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which earned just 3 million dollars more at the box office during its own opening weekend.
