Forums - Movies Discussion - IW Shatters DBO and WW Opening Records (~$250 DBO/$630M WW)

"Avengers: Infinity War delivered a massive $39 million from Thursday evening previews last night. The performance is the fourth largest Thursday night preview ever and the largest for any film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ahead of Captain America: Civil War ($25M), Black Panther ($25.2M) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($27.6M)"  - BOM

With an estimated $105.9 million on Friday, Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is currently looking at an opening weekend that could top $240 million, which would make it the second largest domestic debut all-time behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($247.9m). The film's Friday performance already ranks as the second largest opening day and single day of all-time, behind Force Awakens, and by end of day today it will hold the largest April opening ever before even counting Sunday's grosses."  - BOM 

Looks like IW is off to a great start. It'll be interesting to see if it can pass TFA's $247.97M opening weekend. If any film can do it, I think it would be this one.

39 mill from Thursday?? That’s freakin huge. Other than TFA, what other movie beat that?



Will this superhero craze never end?!



Can't wait to see it tomorrow!

The movie was amazing. It deserves it. Waiting for part 2 will be painful.

 I'm not sure.  It says it's the 4th highest preview take, but they don't say what the other two movies were.  Maybe TLJ is one of them?  I also couldn't find it in their list of all time records.

I'm watching it in a couple of hours.  Can't wait.

As long as Disney can keep pushing good movies, it will last much longer than you think. People only get tired of bad movies/sequels, not good ones.



Just got back from seeing it. Damn, it was really good. I'm surprised they juggled so many characters so well. It kinda makes you realize how much better the X-men movies could be, since they reduced many characters to teenage cameos.
