Marvel's 'Infinity War' takes historic spot at top of movie charts

Marvel's 'Infinity War' takes historic spot at top of movie charts

Avengers: Infinity War earned $250 million in its first weekend, besting fellow Disney title Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($248 million).

There was no doubt that Avengers: Infinity War was going to be a smash hit at the box office, but its first few days in theaters have been even bigger than many imagined.

Fueled by word of mouth, Infinity War took in $83 million on Saturday, well ahead of the previous record holder, Universal's Jurassic World ($69.6 million).

Much like it's domestic performance in the United States and Canada, Avengers: Infinity War has taken the worldwide box-office by storm, a that too a fierce one.

But both intergalactic behemoths belong to Disney, which now owns nine of the top 10 opening weekends ever - six belonging to Marvel releases. Rather than having to pay off and set up lots of other movies, it so far looks like a pretty self-contained adventure filled with a mix of action and comedy, which will be just what Marvel fans need to unwind after the high stakes and emotional turmoil of Infinity War.

The film - a culmination of 18 earlier movies with interwoven plot lines - brings together almost all Marvel's heroes.

The two-hour and 40-minute film was shot over 18 months, with a sequel due out in May next year. (Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk" was mostly shot on IMAX.) IMAX screenings accounted for a record $41 million of the weekend's global ticket sales. The film's massive success has made the biggest weekend for any Hollywood film in India.

"This isn't an old franchise that their parents saw when they were 20", Greg Foster, head of entertainment for IMAX, told the Associated Press.

"'Avengers: Infinity War' demonstrated yet another Marvel superhero power", Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst at comScore, said.

The streaming companies still do not produce movies for theater release.
