'Avengers: Infinity War' Sets Record for Biggest Opening Weekend of All Time

Outdoing ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and ‘The Fate of the Furious’ in domestic and global openings.

By //Entertainment

The second most expensive film of all-time and the 19th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Infinity War, is certainly living up to all the hype. Many publications are reporting that the capstone film pitting the Avengers against Thanos had the biggest opening weekend of all time. Domestically, Infinity War surpassed 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens and its $248 million USD opening by a mere $2 million USD, while its global sales of $630 million USD topples last spring’s The Fate of the Furious and its $542 million USD opening weekend. And that’s without having premiered in China, which is slated for May 11.

According to CinemaBlend.com, Avengers: Infinity War should be the fastest to ever reach $1 billion USD, which is currently set at 12 days by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However it’s hard to say where the numbers will eventually land on the all-time chart, since Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story will be hitting theaters in the coming weeks.

For those that have seen the film, or for those that don’t mind spoilers, watch the post-credit scene from Avengers: Infinity War.
