'Avengers: Infinity War' Becomes the Highest Grossing Superhero Movie of All Time

'Avengers: Infinity War' Becomes the Highest Grossing Superhero Movie of All Time

Combined with its US$200 million launch in China, "Infinity War" earned US$343.1 million worldwide this weekend, for a global cume of US$1.6 billion.

Amitabh Bachchan recently tweeted about watching the film and not quite understanding it.

The Anthony and Joe Russo directorial earned 257.69 million dollars in its opening weekend, breaking the previous record holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens that had opened at 248 million dollars. The film is set to quickly break the $200 million mark, which puts it on pace to beat Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is now the highest grossing MCU film in China. With that said, it will soon face some stiff competition, with Deadpool 2 opening this week and Solo: A Star Wars Story the week after.

Avengers 4 hits theatres May 3, 2019.

As it stands, Infinity War is now the highest grossing superhero release internationally of all-time with its $1.059 billion topping the $946.4 million for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The film narrowly managed to beat out Breaking In, which performed just below expectations with $16.5 million.

Internationally, the comedy tested the waters in eight markets for a foreign debut of $2.9 million and $21.4 million globally. "We'll get it set for the next two or three months".

The movie is the culmination of 10 years of filmmaking which Marvel has referred to as the "most ambitious crossover event in history", something that the Internet has latched onto and mocked relentlessly for weeks. The movie's early industry projections have it opening around $150 million.

The movie took in an estimated $61.8 million, according to Exhibitor Relations, which puts its domestic total at $547 million ($1.06 billion worldwide).

Though those other features will likely bear some relevance for the fourth Avengers film (which could also, potentially, be the series' last), the immediate follow-up to the first arc of the MCU's Infinity Saga is still at the forefront of everyone's mind.

Outside the top five, and landing in the top ten for the 13th consecutive week, is Disney and Marvel's Black Panther. The film will expand to 350 theaters next weekend. There is no word on whether it will also release in China after a minor delay or not.
