What an AMAZING weekend at the box office for Disney and Marvel!
We always sort of figured that Avengers: Infinity War was going to be a very popular draw when it opened in theaters this weekend… but we didn’t know it was going to be quite THIS popular!
Even better, the movie also took in $380 million overseas, giving it a global record haul of $630 million for its opening weekend! And yes, for those keeping score at home, this means that Avengers: Infinity War is now the top worldwide debut movie OF ALL TIME!!!
It far surpassed previous North American record holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens for its continental debut, and beat out global start holder The Fate Of The Furious by more than $90 million to lead the way across the world!!
Even Catleen Taff, poised to take over as Disney distribution chief, couldn’t believe how big the numbers really were (below):
“We have been sitting here all weekend in astonishment.”
What about you, Perezcious readers?! Did you go see this record-setting new release already?! What’d U think of it??
Let us know in the comments (below)!!!
