'Avengers: Infinity War' continues to witness steady rise

Movie Review Avengers is a work of overpowering arrogance with Raavan-like super-villain

Avengers: Infinity War brings toger Marvel's superheroes in a battle of epic proportions against Thanos (played by Josh Brolin), greatest enemy y have faced, a villain whose goal is to gar six Infinity gems to annihilate Half of humanity. Unlike that film, Infinity War has yet to open in China, the world's second-largest movie market. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the Russo Brother directorial has recorded the biggest worldwide opening of all time with $630 million collection. All but one of Marvel's 19 cinematic universe releases has scored an A CinemaScore.

Infiniti has announced it is teaming up with Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" to celebrate the launch of the all-new luxury midsize crossover, the 2019 QX50.

Other studios cleared their decks in anticipation, so there were no competing major releases this weekend. And the weekend numbers are proving that "Infinity War" accomplished its mission.

The track record for Marvel, along with the hyper, extravagant effort put into the long-planned "Infinity War", made the record-setting weekend something of a fait accompli. Ryan Coogler's tentpole continues to shatter records, and has earned an impressive $1.3 billion worldwide. Until now, Avengers: Age of Ultron sported the biggest single day for a superhero pic ($84.4 million).


Before its opening, "Infinity War" has been predicted to make $275 million internationally, so it has completely smashed expectations. In the face of that, Paramount's "A Quiet Place" managed to hold on for $10.6 million in its fourth weekend, a 49 percent drop from the previous weekend after keeping its drop to under 40 percent in past frames. Globally, "Black Panther" has collected $1.3 billion.

Robert Downey Jr dons the red and gold metal suit once again as Iron Man; Benedict Cumberbatch is Doctor Strange; Scarlett Johansson is back as Black Widow; and Australia's Chris Hemsworth is Thor.

Infinity War notched the best start for a superhero pic in France ($17.7 million), Germany ($14.7 million) and Spain ($8.3), while it was the second-best superhero showing in Italy ($11 million).
