Avengers: Infinity War smashes superhero box office record with £60m takings

As the name would suggest, the Fortnite x Avengers LTM was a mashup between the Battle Royale game and the recently released Avengers: Infinity War film.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo confirmed the status of a host of offscreen Marvel characters, although did say some were "too spoilery" to reveal.

Infinity War broke the record for the highest pre-release ticket sales for a superhero movie on online ticketing site, Fandango.

Box office figures of that size would probably be enough to stop Avengers: Infinity War ending up as 2018's biggest film in the UK. 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.

The movie set a new record when it hit the $1 billion mark in just 11 days, but that was from domestic and global combined; now the worldwide gross alone is over $1 billion.

So far, the film has earned $1.6 billion dollars worldwide.

Still showing legs at the box office is Marvel Studios' Black Panther, which grossed $1.9 million domestic in its 13 weekend in release. Count on it. Will it reach "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" at No. 3? We also know Thanos wasn't given a fake Time Stone as he used it to go back in time and get the Infinity Stone from Vision.

Although the three-day opening cumulative of $200 million is lesser than the initial frame of 2017 action blockbuster The Fate of the Furious ($185 million, unadjusted for inflation), the box-office numbers should be calculated in local currency (Chinese renminbi; RMB), which made AIW settle for the second spot in industry history. If the leak is legit, this kind of does seem to be a bit complicated, but to quote Doctor Who: "People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly. time-y wimey. stuff". I'm not saying it can't happen (the movie has defied all expectations at every turn) I just don't think it will.

"Infinity War's" run of weekend titles should end this weekend, when "Deadpool 2" opens.
