Infinity War Now The Highest Grossing Opening Weekend of All Time

My son, disgusted with the fact that his parents have not only failed to see the new Avengers: Infinity War movie yet, but we hadn't even watched Black Panther either, took us to see both movies today. I am not surprised the movie brought in close to $900M globally in its first weekend. This is easily one of the best Marvel movies yet.

Audiences assembled worldwide as Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War broke both the domestic opening weekend box office record and worldwide opening record with a massive $250 million domestically and $630 million worldwide. In its wake, the majority of films on the weekend box office chart fell dramatically, though fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe release Black Panther improved its position from eighth place last weekend to a spot in this weekend's top five, truly making this a Marvel-ous weekend.
