'Avengers' assemble at top of the box office

Avengers: Infinity War smashes box office record with $250M, passing 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens

At this point, it's hard to see any film on the horizon possibly dethroning Infinity War's opening weekend title with the exception of Avengers 4 and/or Star Wars: Episode IX because in both cases people want to see how the story ends.

It's another addition to a winning streak for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A final Sunday figure won't be released until Monday morning, but estimates show Infinity War earning $61 million, narrowly beating Force Awakens ($60 million).

The single opening day for the Marvel sequel is now only second behind The Force Awakens as well. Avengers Infinity has given record breaking performance. The superhero smorgasbord "Avengers: Infinity Wars" opened with predictable shock-and-awe, earning $250 million in box office over the weekend and edging past "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" to set the highest opening weekend of all-time. The thriller - directed by John Krasinski and co-starring Krasinski and Emily Blunt - continues its impressive run with a domestic total of $148 million in four weeks.

The film made a whopping Rs 31.3 crore on its first day. The previous worldwide opening record holder was The Fate of the Furious with $541.9 million. The Burbank, California-based company is already far ahead of rivals this year thanks to the $1 billion-plus generated by "Black Panther", a fresh hit from the company's Marvel superhero library. The film, released in four languages - Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu - across the country in over 2000 screens, registered higher opening day occupancy than the Hindi release of Baahubali 2. However, there is one record that Avengers: Infinity War broke which took MCU a solid 10 years to crackdown. The question now is whether it can pass TFA's total numbers and/or become the first movie ever to pass $1 billion in the domestic box office alone.

In his reaction in a statement, Bikram Duggal, Executive Director & Head Studios and CMO, Disney India, said Avengers Infinity War euphoria and the reactions from fans has been stupendous.

Falling to No. 2 this week is "A Quiet Place", bringing in an estimated $10.6 million in its fourth week out.
