Well, it’s happened. After a huge opening weekend, destroying the previous record, Avengers Infinity War becomes the fastest film to ever hit the $1 Billion mark at the Box Office. It did all this in only 11 days, breaking the previous record set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens which it the $1 Billion mark in 12 days.
The exact number so far is $1.164 Billion, and is already in 15th place all-time passing The Dark Night Rises, Captain America: Civil War and Minions. There’s no telling how high Avengers Infinity War could go, but it hasn’t even been released in China yet, where Avengers: Age of Ultron did over $200 Million. While the numbers might fall off slightly in comparison to The Force Awakens due to not having the extended Christmas/New Year’s Holiday period to aid it, it’s already shown it has very strong legs and will probably finish over $1.5 Billion by next weekend.
One reason for this is the replay value of Avengers Infinity War is strong. I just went to see it again yesterday, and I liked it even more the second time (probably because I wasn’t hyperventilating during ever action scene wondering who would make it through or not.). It’s also a film that really deserves to be seen in IMAX, especially since the whole film was filmed specially in that format. I still stand by everything I said in my Avengers Infinity War Review, and I would definitely recommend seeing it a second time so you can pick up on some of the small details you probably missed before.
I want to know what you think about Avengers Infinity War hitting the $1 Billion mark at the Box Office.
