Day-1 Box Office: Avengers- Infinity War breaks Bollywood records

Day-1 Box Office: Avengers- Infinity War breaks Bollywood records

According to estimates by Disney, the Marvel Studios superhero film also set a new global opening record with $630 million (£457 million), even though it's yet to open in China, the world's second-largest film market. Avengers: Infinity War posted the highest opening weekend in industry history in Korea, India (western), Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Brazil, Central America, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, South Africa, Turkey (non-local), UAE and West Africa. Most studios have deigned to get out of the way with only small bits of counterprogramming like Tully and Overboard trying to withstand the onslaught of Infinity War.

"He tweeted: "'Avengers: InfinityWar" smashes records. The opening day collections of $105 million are second only to Star Wars: The Force Awakens' $116 million haul in 2015.

Disney updated its opening-weekend forecast to US$240 million, compared with independent forecasts of about US$230 million. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. Avengers Infinity War released in theatres on April 27 in the U.S. and India while Australia and a few other countries got the chance to watch it a day earlier than everyone else. That film finished with $623 million domestic and $1.5 billion worldwide. To put this in perspective for Marvel, the first Avengers movie was fifth on that list and brought in about $207 million during its opening weekend. Looking at the current, we are expecting the film to collect around Rs 150 crore in its first week at the box office.

Hollywood is watching to see if the film-featuring the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy-can smash the USA opening weekend box-office record now held by "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". After ten years, 18 prior films and some $15 billion in box office, the weekend was an assured and long-awaited coronation for Kevin Feige's Marvel, the most dominant force in a Hollywood with precious few sure things.

The movie features the return of popular actors such as Robert Downey Jr.as Iron Man and Chris Hemsworth as Thor, as well as Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. Then the movie opened in the USA and in North America, it minted $105 million bringing the total to $200 million.
