After failing to make more than Star Wars: The Force Awakens on its first Friday, Infinity War broke the records for biggest Saturday and Sunday gross ever ($82 million and $69 million). This was enough to break the all-time record for highest worldwide opening.
Exclusively in IMAX theatres, the film expands vertically to show up to 26% more picture - providing audiences with even greater scope and impressive quality.
A fourth Avengers film has been scheduled for release in one year.
Avengers: Infinity War isn't just the most epic Marvel movie to date - both in terms of roster and box-office earnings - it's also the biggest bloodbath in the franchise's history. That debut finally took place this weekend and the numbers were absolutely extraordinary. The IMAX domestic network reported multiple sell-out screenings with IMAX representing 8 of the film's top 10 North America engagements.
Despite its huge opening, Infinity War still didn't beat out The Fate of the Furious for No.1 opening weekend in China.

Will Avengers: Infinity War become the highest grossing film of all time?
If you haven't seen Avengers: Infinity War by now, you should really rectify that.

Globally the film has now grossed over $1.6 billion - $200 million of which was from its massive opening in China this weekend.
Well if the leak's claim that the plot centres on Tony Stark building his own Gauntlet and the Avengers collecting the Infinity Stones in the past is true, then that certainly would fit with Infinity Gauntlet being the original title.
