The amount of money made by superhero movies is nothing short of insane, but somehow, it’s about to get even crazier.
Over at Deadline, it’s being reported that the ticket sale estimates for Marvel and Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War for this weekend are astronomical. Domestically, the film is being tracked to pull in between $216 million and $235 million. If it passes the $220 million mark, it will become the second highest domestic opening of all time, with Star Wars: The Last Jedi as the current record-holder.
Overseas ticket sales for the film are tracked to be doing just as high. Estimates are ranging between $256 million and $263 million. Using these figures combined with the estimated domestic haul, Infinity War is on track to pull in a whopping $498 million from its opening weekend alone. With some sources estimating even higher figures, it’s certainly possible the movie will surpass half a billion dollars.
Infinity War is the third Avengers movie but just the latest in a long line of entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So far, the MCU has pulled in $14.8 billion worldwide, and is only getting bigger. However this war ends, one thing is for sure — we will definitely be seeing more from the Avengers in the future.
Synopsis: Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
Avengers: Infinity War opens in theaters everywhere on April 27th, 2018. While we wait just a few more days for the film to drop, take a look at the trailer one final time below!
