Audiences assembled worldwide as Disney and Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War broke both the domestic opening weekend box office record and worldwide opening record with a massive $250 million domestically and $630 million worldwide. In its wake, the majority of films on the weekend box office chart fell dramatically, though fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe release Black Panther improved its position from eighth place last weekend to a spot in this weekend’s top five, truly making this a Marvel-ous weekend. Infinity War’s opening weekend bests the previous record of $247.9 million set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in December 2015 by just over $2 million, but it’s also worth mentioning Disney under-estimated Black Panther’s $202 million opening by nearly $10 million on Sunday. The studio also under-estimated The Avengers’s performance by $7 million and under-estimated Avengers: Age of Ultron by $3.6 million. As such, don’t be surprised to see Infinity War’s debut blossom come actuals on Monday afternoon. At this moment, the film accounts for 84.4% of the domestic top twelve, second only to Ultron’s 84.5% market share. GET MORE: Compare Infinity War’s opening weekend to fellow $200M+ openers!
