Avengers: Infinity War smashes superhero box office record with £60m takings

15 May 2018

The studio's president, Kevin Feige, told the BBC (via Screen Rant) during the "Avengers: Infinity War" promotional campaign that there is a chance that Kamala will be included in the film universe after they have established Carol Danvers in her own movie. Should Thanos and Star-Lord have had a dance-off in the recent Avengers film?

That means Infinity War has passed The Avengers (US$1.519 billion), Furious 7 (US$1.516 billion), Avengers: Age of Ultron (US$1.405 billion), Black Panther (US$1.229 billion), and Star Wars: The Last Jedi (US$1.332 billion) to become the fifth-highest-grossing global film of all time. The IMAX domestic network reported multiple sell-out screenings with IMAX representing 8 of the film's top 10 North America engagements. With the Marvel Cinematic Universe recently crossing $15 billion in worldwide box office receipts, the moviegoing public's hunger for comic book films seemingly knows no bounds. The fourth "Avengers" film is due out next year. The superhero film raked in $200 million (1.26 billion RMB) in the world's second-largest market, far surpassing the opening weekend performances of other Marvel movies.

Avengers: Infinity War will face its first major challenger this coming weekend at the box office with the release of Fox's Deadpool 2, followed by the May 25 release of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Rising violence in recent months across the province of North Kivu has been linked to broader political instability in DR Congo. Five Virunga rangers and a staff driver were killed just last month during an ambush in the central sector of the park.

$200 million opening weekend haul in China powers Avengers: Infinity War's worldwide total to $1.05 billion.

For Infinity War to pass The Force Awakens it would have to make another $460 million before the end of it's run in theaters - is that possible? The Saturday gross of $77.49 million is the best single day gross ever of all-time for a foreign film in China. In the video, Brolin, unfamiliar with Fortnite, notes that he didn't remember Thanos flying at any point in Infinity War, but he gladly would have done the motion capture for the dancing.

As for cracking the top two, I don't envision Infinity War pulling it off.
