‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Has Biggest Box Office Opening of All Time

Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War was a juggernaut at the worldwide box office, amassing $630 million in its opening weekend.

The feat shattered Universal Picture’s Fate of the Furious, which made $541 million last year for its global opening.

Infinity War had the largest opening at the North American box office. It earned $250 million in three days, squeaking past 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which made $248 million in its opening.

“Disney masterfully combined all of the separate elements of the Marvel brand and brought them together in an enormous and irresistible epic popcorn movie,” Paul Dergarabedian, a senior media analyst at comScore, told CNN Money.

Disney has made over $15 billion since the Marvel Cinematic Universe was launched with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man in 2008.
