Avengers: Infinity War Breaks Domestic and Worldwide Records in Its Opening Weekend

Everyone knew Avengers: Infinity War would open big but the question was, how big? We’ve got that answer with a record opening weekend. The film has opened with a record $250 million domestically which bests the previous record holder Star Wars: The Force Awaken‘s $247.9 million. The film also earned a record $630 million worldwide. Disney has a habit of underestimating these types of things, so it’s possible that number could go even higher.

Addition records include:

  • Largest single Saturday gross
  • Largest single Sunday gross
  • Largest April opening
  • Largest Spring opening
  • Widest PG-13 release
  • Fastest film to $150, $200, and $250 million

Internationally the film opened with an estimated $380 million from 72% of the international marketplace. That’s the second largest. Fate of the Furious holds the record with $442 million but it had the benefit of China which earned $185 million of that. The film will open there May 11th. It was #1 in all territories.

Infinity War received an “A” CinemaScore with audience that was 58% male and 58% over the age of 24. With this opening the 18 Marvel Cinematic Universe films has amassed nearly $15.5 billion combined.

In second place was A Quiet Place which earned $10.65 million domestically to bring that total to $148.2 million and it now has $235.4 million worldwide off of a $17 million budget.

I Feel Pretty remained in third place with $8.13 million. It has now earned $29.6 million domestically off of a $32 million budget after two weeks.

Rampage dropped from second to fourth with an estimated $7.1 million to bring its domestic total to $77.9 million. The film has been a monster at the foreign box office where it has earned 76.7% of its grosses with $256.7 million for a worldwide total of $334.6 million.

Rounding out the top five was Black Panther which improved from last week’s eighth place. The film added $4.4 million to its domestic total and clearly has gotten a boost from Avengers: Infinity War. This is the first time since 2008 that Marvel has had two films in the top ten.

In other comic movie news…

The Death of Stalin held steady at #21 with $210,478 to bring its domestic total to $7.2 million after eight weeks.

The next comic adaptation to come to theaters is Deadpool 2 on May 18th followed by Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6th.

A Quiet Place Takes Back First While Two Debuts are in the Top Five

This weekend had a pretty tight race for the top spot as A Quiet Place and Rampage battled for the top spot. In the end, only $1 million separated them in the early reported earnings.

A Quiet Place took back to the top spot bringing in an estimated $22 million for the weekend to bring its domestic total to $132.4 million. With the $15 million internationally, the film has also earned a total of $74.8 million at the foreign box office to bring its worldwide total to $207.2 million off of a $17 million budget.

Rampage dropped from last weekend’s first place to second earning $21 million. The film has earned $66.6 million after two weeks. The film also earned $57 million internationally from 61 markets bringing its worldwide total to $283 million.

In third place was a debut, I Feel Pretty which earned an estimated $16.2 million which beat some expectations. The film has a reported budget of $32 million.

Super Troopers 2 came in fourth place with $14.7 million. That’s the best opening for a Broken Lizard film. Beerfest opened with $7 million in 2006 and Super Troopers earned $6.2 million in 2002. Club Dread opened with $3 million in 2004 and The Slammin’ Salmon earned $26,167 in 2009. With a $13.5 million budget, the film should do well and will likely make a nice profit by the time it’s done.

In comic related films…

Black Panther came in at #8 with $4.6 million to bring its domestic total to $681.1 million. Worldwide the film stands at $1.324 billion.
