What an AMAZING weekend at the box office for Disney and Marvel!
We always sort of figured that Avengers: Infinity War was going to be a very popular draw when it opened in theaters this weekend… but we didn’t know it was going to be quite THIS popular!
The superhero mashup movie took over the North American box office this weekend and utterly dominated everything, bringing in a record-setting $250 million on the continent!
Even better, the movie also took in $380 million overseas, giving it a global record haul of $630 million for its opening weekend! And yes, for those keeping score at home, this means that Avengers: Infinity War is now the top worldwide debut movie OF ALL TIME!!!
It far surpassed previous North American record holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens for its continental debut, and beat out global start holder The Fate Of The Furious by more than $90 million to lead the way across the world!!
Even Catleen Taff, poised to take over as Disney distribution chief, couldn’t believe how big the numbers really were (below):
“We have been sitting here all weekend in astonishment.”
