Of this, about $250 million in ticket sales were collected from the United States and Canadian theaters. Disney said that the movies opened worldwide nearly everywhere at the same time, and earned about $380 million from global sales. The film earned Dollars $630 million (Rs 417 cr) on its opening day at worldwide box office.
"Infinity War" delivers in every way possible: it is packed with action and visuals that will have viewers wishing that such powers and characters really did exist. Spoilers were avoided and the hashtag #thanosdemandsyoursilence spread the message on social media. In a way this is reminding of the kind of super success that Baahubali had turned out to be.
Ruffalo's revelation drew a shocked reaction from Cheadle, who was clearly pissed at his co-star's slip, while the actor, realising his error, asked GMA producers to rewind the tape while saying, "Am I in trouble?". The movie is in theaters now.
This record is not yet complete, though. In the rest of the continent, the film also racked up the biggest opening weekend of all time in West Africa with over N137.4 million, as well as the biggest April and second highest opening weekend in East Africa with over kes 23.4 million.

Marvel's Avengers have now received the "mean tweets" treatment. The coming weekend would be crucial in determining how far it can go in the Indian box office.

Although the past Avenger movies had mostly the same group of characters, other movies, such as "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "The Black Panther", were too recent to be included in the latest Avengers movie, "Age of Ultron".
For the record, Infinity War is apparently playing on an astounding 85 percent of the nation's movie screens, which includes 978 from CGV, 773 from Lotte and 577 from Megabox. The number two movie is another Disney franchise - Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And the company has already nearly made that money back in its opening weekend.
