Avengers: Infinity War Inches Away From The 100 Crores Club

Avengers Infinity War

It opens there May 11.

Domestically, "Infinity War" took in $250 million, surpassing 2015′s "The Force Awakens", which brought in $247 million. Its sequel, "Age of Ultron", launched with $191 million. Per Box Office Mojo, the new Marvel Studios event grossed an estimated $105.6 million in its opening day at the domestic box office.

The latest superhero title scored the highest opening for a Marvel film, surpassing the original "Avengers'" opening of $207.4 million. "Avengers: Infinity Wars" is already on its way to become the second highest grossing Hollywood film in India, after 2016 animated film "The Jungle Book". So it's no surprise that a movie featuring almost all Marvel's heroes-and the culmination of 18 earlier movies with interwoven plot lines-would take off as it has. Their lives change quickly as Thanos (Josh Brolin) makes an entry that shatters the confidence of Earth's Mightiest Heroes who were till then, divided but not conquered.

While Disney began with a more cautious forecast of $210 million for the three-day opening weekend, the company on Friday raised that estimate to $225 million. Considering Infinity War was advertised as a culmination of 10 years of Marvel movies, the internet was understandably unhappy with Brody's criticism. "This is theirs. The Marvel universe is the group of characters that this generation owns". All-in-all, Avengers: Infinity War was only a few bucks away from the 100 crore club with the 94.33 crores collection over the weekend. Paramount's "A Quiet Place", a horror film directed by John Krasinski, slid into second place with an additional $10.6 million, according to comScore, which compiles box office data. While the Tiger Shroff starrer Baaghi 2 made 73.10 crores at the box office in its opening weekend, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's Padmavat made around 114 crores at the ticket window in its opening weekend as well.

Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore, credited Marvel with the potent lead-up to "Infinity Wars" with "Spider-Man: Homecoming", "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", "Thor: Ragnarok" and "Black Panther" - all successful and well-reviewed entries.
