Avengers: Infinity War has sparked heated debate after being released.  In addition to the story, the amazing box office has been breaking records.  

According to the estimates by industry tracker Exhibitor Relations, Avengers: Infinity War made history with a $630m global opening weekend take, even though the film has not yet opened in China. This record would overtake The Fate of the Furious’s $542m global opening weekend haul, a record set in 2017. When Avengers: Infinity War hit the theater in China on May 11, it must create another high peak.

The film has also broken the all-time domestic opening record which put Avengers ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ $248m take, making $250m in the US alone in 3 days.

In Taiwan, in addition that the social media has been full of the discussion of Avengers, before the film was officially released, the dealer has sold over 230 thousands pre-sale tickets of which 4DX and IMAX version tickets made up of 30%.  Actually the playday of Avengers: Infinity War was workday in Taiwan, however, in order to avoid a plot spoiler, there were lines in front of the theaters on the workday.

Directed by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War gathers basically all the marvel superheroes, including Ironman, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Thor, Hulk, Spiderman and Black Widow. Up to 67 characters shows in the film; without a doubt, the new Marvel legend which made an unexpected success in February, Black Panther also joins the fight in the new sequel.

Avenger: Infinity War comes 10 years after the release of Iron Man, which kicked off a series of high-profile superhero films.  The first Avenger came out in 2012 and made $207.4m domestically, holding the previous record opening for a Marvel film, but this record has been easily surpassed by the new sequel now.
