As most people predicted, Avengers: Infinity War passed up Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the biggest opening weekend in North America: $250 million big.
Here are some more numbers to put this in perspective, thanks to the Hollywood Reporter:
- At $630 million raking in the box office worldwide, it is now the record holder there — and surpassed the previous record holder by $100 million.
- Infinity War also has the biggest Saturday the movies in North American history. That means tons of families are seeing this flick.
- People wanting to take in Black Panther before this movie helped them jump from the number 8 movie in North America — to number 5 this weekend. It’s been in theaters since the middle of February.
- Marvel Studios now own six of the top 10 all-time best opening weekends. That’s a nice list to be on. — [eric]
