Highlights

  • Total now stands at $1.606 billion
  • More than The Avengers, fifth worldwide

Avengers: Infinity War continued to break records over the weekend, becoming Marvel's highest-grossing film of all-time, topping The Avengers which had held the record for six years. In doing so, Infinity War has become the fifth highest-grossing film of all-time.

The latest Marvel get-together, which brings together Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and the rest, opened in China to an estimated $200 million (CNY 1.266 billion), making it the second largest debut for a film in the Asian country behind Fast and Furious 8 (CNY 1.352 billion). Infinity War added another $61.8 million in the US, though that figure is expected to rise come Monday when actual figures are released.

Put together, Infinity War has now grossed $1.606 billion (about Rs. 10,794 crores), lifting it above Marvel's previous most successful film to date, The Avengers ($1.518 billion). The Disney-Marvel movie is now the fifth highest-grossing film of all-time, behind Avatar ($2.788 billion), Titanic ($2.187 billion), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion), and Jurassic World ($1.671 billion).

Infinity War should easily cross Jurassic World during the week, though whether it can hit the highly-coveted $2-billion figure worldwide will depend on how upcoming films, Deadpool 2 (May 18) and Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25), fare with critics and fans.

Last week, Infinity War also became the highest-grossing Hollywood film of all-time in India, besting The Jungle Book, and has since become the first Hollywood movie to enter the Rs. 200-crore club. As of Wednesday, the total stood at Rs. 256.91 crores ($38.2 million).
