Weekend Box Office: Every Record "Avengers: Infinity War" Has Beaten So Far


Audiences assembled worldwide for Walt Disney's "Avengers: Infinity War" and crushed James Cameron's hopes for "Avengers fatigue". The Russo brothers' movie opened in the number one spot and broke all kinds of records.

It made $258.2 million domestically and $380,000,000 internationally for a worldwide total of $630 million. Current estimates have it beating the $247.96 million opening weekend of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Amazingly, in just three days, "Avengers: Infinity War" has become the first movie to earn $250 mil. That's the biggest opening weekend of all time (second to "The Force Awakens" if you adjust for inflation).

So, for those keeping track, "Avengers 3" also posted these impressive records:

  • Largest single Saturday gross ($83 mil over "Marvel's The Avengers")
  • Largest single Sunday gross ($69 mil over "Marvel's The Avengers")
  • Largest April opening ($258 mil over "Furious 7")
  • Largest Spring opening (over "Beauty and the Beast")
  • Widest PG-13 release (4,474 theaters over "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse")
  • Fastest film to $150 million (over "Star Wars: The Force Awakens")
  • Fastest film to $200 million (over "Star Wars: The Force Awakens")
  • Fastest film to $250 million (over "Star Wars: The Force Awakens")
  • Fastest film to $1 billion
  • Largest opening weekend in Russia
Paramount Pictures' "A Quiet Place" moved down one position to the number two spot. It lost/gained over 49% to make $10.7 million for a domestic box office gross of $148 million. and a worldwide total of $235 million.

Warner Bros.'s "Rampage" dropped two positions to the number four spot. It made 65% less than last week to make an additional $7.1 million domestically for a worldwide total of $335 million.

Walt Disney's "Black Panther" moved up from number eight to number five thanks to MCU fans wanting to catch up. It lost only 11% over last week to make $4.4 million for a domestic box office gross of $688 million and a worldwide total of $1.33 billion. It's the first time since "The Incredible Hulk" in 2008 that two Marvel movies have been in the top ten at the same time. Hulk shared the spotlight with "Iron Man" (2008). That's impressive considering it's in it's eleventh week.

Warner Bros.'s "Ready Player One" dropped three positions to the number nine spot. It made 67% less in the fourth week to make $2.4 million. Steven Spielberg's movie has a total domestic box office gross of $131 million and a worldwide total of $545 million.

"A Wrinkle in Time" isn't in the top ten but did move up three spots to the number 15 position. Ava DuVernay's latest film made an additional $658,000 domestically this past weekend for a worldwide total of $125,145,061. It made it's $100 million budget back but isn't much profit for the studio.

John Boyega's "Pacific Rim: Uprising" dropped three positions to number 22 and made $97,000 in its sixth week. The worldwide total now stands at  $286,536,960 worldwide. That's less than the $411,002,906 the original film made. It has time to make more but it's not going to get anywhere close to "Pacific Rim". The chances for a "Pacific Rim" trilogy has gone from possible to impossible.

What do you think of the box office results this past weekend?
