Avengers Infinity War box office collection day 1 This Marvel film was much anticipated

Some of the Superheroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe are missing in the film even though they aren't that big; then the ending hints at a sequel (we all knew that!) but the way it makes the hint is hurting. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the Russo Brother directorial has recorded the biggest worldwide opening of all time with $630 million collection.

It made $250m (£181.5m) in ticket sales during its opening weekend in the United States, narrowly beating Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the highest opening weekend ever.

It joins only six other films to achieve such incredible figures, and is now Marvel Studios' best opening weekend yet. The film's endurance should be lifted by mostly positive reviews from critics, as well as an A from audiences in CinemaScore exit polls.

Avengers: Infinity War is currently running in theatres now and is set to release on May 11 in China. Numbers are an eye-opener more so, because it was released in just 2000-plus screens... Avengers: Infinity War posted the highest opening weekend in industry history in Korea, India (western), Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Brazil, Central America, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, South Africa, Turkey (non-local), UAE and West Africa.

Marvel/Disney's long-awaited "Avengers: Infinity War" proved its box office might over the weekend as it took in an estimated $250 million at the domestic box office, according to boxofficepro.

Rescue heroics save boy in United States trapped underwater for nine minutes
Surveillance video captured the horrific moments a 12-year-old boy became trapped in a pool drain at a resort in SC . Emergency medical technicians were then able to free the boy and get him to the side of the pool.

By comparison to previous Avengers films, the 2012 film had an opening weekend of $207.4 million.

Dergarabedian added that "Infinity War" showcased the big screen experience in a way that audiences embraced, despite all of the competition from "an nearly infinite array of options for on-demand entertainment".

So here is a comprehensive list of all the records Infinity War is either breaking or in the position to break so far, as of Saturday night (so much more money is about to pour in). In India ($18.6 million), it was the biggest bow for a Western title ever and has already surpassed the entire runs of The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War.

Rounding out the top five at the domestic box office this weekend were A Quiet Place, I Feel Pretty, Rampage, and Black Panther.

This year's other Marvel film, Black Panther, was released in February and now holds the all-time record for highest grossing domestic Marvel film at $684.9 million and rising.
