'Avengers: Infinity War' gets 'marvel'lous opening in India

Avengers: Infinity War an Enormous Cinematic Extravaganza with an array of Marvel-ous characters breaks the record of Day 1 Collection of any Hollywood movie in India. Our fearless editor-in-chief also mentioned that of all the crossovers in the third Avengers film, his favorite was that of Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy, and that Thanos is much more present than your typical MCU villain, playing a really big part in the story. BIGGEST START of 2018 so far... The thing is though, I feel I'm going to have to view the film a number of more times before I get a solid grip on just how good it is. "East. West. North. South".

Friday's windfall puts "Infinity War" in second place behind only "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which made $119 million for its opening day in 2015, according to comScore. To play Avengers: Infinity War, many theatres will change the format of their screens from E-cinema to D-cinema as Hollywood has a policy of not releasing their films in E-cinemas.

Force Awakens grossed US$248 million over its initial weekend. Per Box Office Mojo, the new Marvel Studios event grossed an estimated $105.6 million in its opening day at the domestic box office.

In another tweet, he also pointed out the fact that this massive superhero movie's numbers are important also because it released only in 2000 screens, unlike most high-profile Bollywood movies that usually release in about twice as many screens.

Avengers: Infinity War is a powerpacked movie full of action and emotions.

Even a massively hyped film like Padmaavat does not stand the opening ground with Avengers this time. Based on that performance, analysts believe it could close the weekend with $240-250 million in receipts. It also allowed the studio to begin showing "Infinity War" in nearly all global markets at the same time and challenge the record worldwide opening of "The Fate of the Furious", which debuted with $542 million for Universal Pictures in 2017.
