'Avengers: Infinity War' assembles biggest box office opening ever

The worldwide opening of $380 million represents the second-highest global opening weekend ever after only The Fate of the Furious' $443 million, which included $185 million from China. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has enthusiastically tweeted support for Infinity War all weekend, which is only fitting because the Guardians play a major role within the film.

Despite Avengers: Infinity War's resounding victory in its opening weekend, it's a little curious that it just barely beat The Force Awakens for the biggest Canadian opening weekend. Domestically, the film put up a cool $250 million and was celebrated in Hollywood as the biggest opening ever. Looking at the current, we are expecting the film to collect around Rs 150 crore in its first week at the box office.

Overall, the film scored very well with critics, earning an 84% grade on Rotten Tomatoes. The film had an higher occupancy on day one than Dangal, PK, Kick, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Tubelight, Bodyguard, Dilwale, Raees and recent releases like Baaghi 2 and Padmaavat.

Cine lovers have all rushed to theatre near them to watch the 19th film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Analysts at Box Office Pro were predicting as much as $255 million in domestic weekend sales. Metacritic, another review tracker, had 68 positive reviews, fewer than the tally for "Black Panther" but more than 2015's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" at 66.

Golden Knights deal Sharks 7-0 drubbing to extend playoff hot streak
No, the Sharks aren't in Orange County anymore. "They made the right call on the ice", Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said. The Golden Knights matched their seven-goal total in the first game against the San Jose Sharks, winning 7-0.

On day 1, April 25, the movie collected $40 million from the worldwide market, followed by $55 million on the next day. "Fate" still holds the record for global (worldwide total minus USA domestic) with $443.2.

These results have smashed this year's record of biggest opening to-date even overtaking Marvel's Black Panther, which brought in £50million in the United Kingdom and Ireland box offices this week, keeping it in the top ten films for its eleventh week.

Disney had 26% of the domestic box office heading into the weekend, according to researcher Box Office Mojo. "'Infinity War' will effectively reverse the down trending box office we've seen so far this year and get the industry on track setting the stage for what could be a big summer".
