  • 'Avengers – Infinity War' Opens To Blockbuster Numbers

The third installment of the Avengers franchise Infinity War is on its way to break records set by Hollywood films in India.

Avengers: Infinity War brings together over 20 superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to fight one villain - Thanos.

The movie is widely expected to top 5 million Monday afternoon. "Infinity War" carries an 87 percent on the Tomatometer, which means over the course of 10 years, the MCU still doesn't have a film that's been deemed "rotten" on the review aggregator site - even though this two-hour sleep aid came mighty close.

Dergarabedian added that "Infinity War" showcased the big screen experience in a way that audiences embraced, despite all of the competition from "an nearly infinite array of options for on-demand entertainment". Over the weekend, Gunn opened up about which decisions were his and how he contributed to Marvel's newest blockbuster. The early numbers are in for Infinity War in Canada, and they're appropriately historic. It also went past Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson starrer Fate of the Furious with the former making $630 million and latter making $541.9 million at the worldwide box-office on opening weekend.

Needless to say, Infinity War will also be walking away with the best superhero opening crown, passing The Avengers domestically ($207.4 million) and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice ($422.5 million) globally. The Marvel film raked in Rs 94.30 crore in its opening weekend and is all set to cross the Rs 100 crore mark today. The film will also take the record for the largest April opening weekend ever by the end of day. "Fate" still holds the record for global (worldwide total minus US domestic) with $443.2.
