Marvel's latest offering, Avengers: Infinity War has left us all spellbound. The film has managed to exceed everyone's expectation and garnered an opening weekend collection of 250 million dollars in the United States, becoming the highest domestic weekend of any film. If that was not enough, Avengers: Infinity War also became the biggest worldwide weekend opener with 630 million dollars.
The worldwide collection now stands at 1.33 billion dollar
What’s more, Black Panther, the last Marvel film, is still in theatres and is still rocking the box office. Infinity War is the third biggest Marvel film after The Avengers and its sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Estimates had pegged Avengers: Infinity War at earning a maximum of 200 million dollars in the opening weekend. At 250 million dollars, this film just created history. The 630 million dollars worldwide haul of the film, too, is significant. Notably, Warner Bros and DC’s superhero team-up film Justice League earned a total of 657 million dollars in its entire box office run.
It holds an 84% rating at review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes with the consensus being, “Avengers: Infinity War ably juggles a dizzying array of MCU heroes in the fight against their gravest threat yet, and the result is a thrilling, emotionally resonant blockbuster that (mostly) realizes its gargantuan ambitions.”
Avengers: Infinity War brings together all the Marvel superheroes in a quest to save half the universe from being destroyed by the Mad Titan, Thanos. To fulfill his quest, Thanos is trying to acquire all the Infinity Stones that would give him enough power to achieve his target with a snap of his finger.
