Avengers: Infinity War has broken several records since its release on Friday, including both the US and worldwide box office collections in the opening weekend. In India, the latest Marvel team-up had the biggest opening weekend for a Hollywood film, and has become the highest-grossing Hollywood film of 2018.
Infinity War opened to $250 million (roughly Rs. 1,659 crores) in the US, beating Star Wars: The Force Awakens by just $2 million. Both are films by Disney, which owns Marvel and Lucasfilm. Internationally, the nineteenth Marvel chapter clocked in $380 million (roughly Rs. 2,522 crores) from all territories – excluding China and Russia, where the film is yet to open – which is second to Fast & Furious 8’s $443.2 million, which had the benefit of opening in China ($185 million).
Put together, Infinity War’s worldwide opening weekend stands at a record-shattering $630 million (roughly Rs. 4,182 crores), surpassing The Fate of the Furious’ $541.9 million and The Force Awakens’ $529 million. Moreover, Disney tends to underestimate its weekend totals, so there’s every chance that figure will rise come Monday in the US.
In India, Infinity War grossed Rs 40.13 crores on Friday, Rs. 39.1 crores on Saturday, and Rs. 44.24 crores on Sunday, for a weekend total of Rs. 123.47 crores ($18.6 million). Disney says that figure makes it the biggest opening weekend of all-time for a Hollywood film in India, and the three-day gross has already crossed the totals of all other Hollywood films in 2018.
Infinity War also opened in first position in other international countries, including the UK ($42.2 million), South Korea ($39.2 million), Mexico ($25.1 million), Australia ($23.0 million), Brazil ($18.8 million), France ($17.7 million), Germany ($14.7 million), Philippines ($12.5 million), Italy ($11.0 million), Thailand ($10.0 million), Indonesia ($9.6 million), Taiwan ($9.5 million), Japan ($9.0 million), Malaysia ($8.4 million) and Spain ($8.3 million).
