Avengers: Infinity War smashes box office records

Infinity War's box office performance stands to improve further still, as the superhero movie has not yet opened in China-the world's second-largest area for movies. Still, the worldwide grosses for the opening are even more astounding because the film shattered the record without Russian Federation or China, where it opens May 3 and May 11, respectively. Incredibly, "Infinity War" sprinted to first place without the enormous markets of China or Russian Federation, where it will open in the next two weeks.

"It is an extraordinary weekend for the movie business and for the Marvel Cinematic Universe", Dave Hollis, head of domestic distribution at Disney, said.

This smashes the previous record, held by vehicle franchise film "The Fate Of The Furious" aka "F8", which made $534 million in its opening weekend a year ago. The film will soon cross the coveted Rs 100 crore mark in the opening weekend itself. Though Padmaavat had enjoyed the extended weekend of 4 days excluding paid previews on Wednesday plus the screen count of Ranveer Singh's film was nearly double than Avengers. The ceiling on Infinity War's domestic performance this weekend is super high, as it is playing in an astounding 4,474 theaters. Numbers are an eye-opener more so, because it was released in just 2000-plus screens... Considering that Sunday is the last non-working day in the first week for Avengers, it is expected to pull in the audience.
