'Avengers: Infinity War' gets $106 million, second-biggest U.S. debut

'Avengers: Infinity War' gets $106 million, second-biggest U.S. debut

Infinity War has entered the record books with an estimated global opening of $630 million, making it the highest global opening weekend of all time without even counting China (it opens there on May 11). Rivals avoided the weekend, meaning the Marvel superhero mash up faced no competition from other new releases. It also leaves some open questions at the end, which could only mean bigger things for upcoming MCU movies. The Burbank, California-based company is already far ahead of rivals this year thanks to the $1 billion-plus generated by "Black Panther", a fresh hit from the company's Marvel superhero library. After this weekend, the 2018 box office is up 3.2 percent compared to 2017, according to comScore.

The action blockbuster has been in the works for over a decade combining a vast work of characters and story lines from the Marvel universe. It's the biggest opening of all time, smashing the record previously held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which opened in 2015 with nearly $248 million.

The newest addition to the Marvel cinematic universe opened in 2,000 Indian screen on Friday in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

"Infinity War" has ignited a spark in the box office.

The Avengers Infinity War has crosses $1 billion at the domestic box office collection.

Pretty much the entire lineup of heroes, from the original Avengers, to second-wave additions like Scarlet Witch and Vision, to recent introductions like Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, are present for the big showdown fans have been waiting for. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

The film stars Robert Downey Jr, Josh Brolin, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L Jackson, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Don Cheadle, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Tom Hiddleston.

When Paltrow was then seen in a motion-caption suit whilst taking to Instagram from the set late previous year, it was assumed that we'd see her as Rescue once again - complete with superhuman strength and flight.
