Infinity War is also suppose to be massive and shattering box office records is Marvel’s second nature but considering all that numbers are narcissistic. In a country like India where nearly 70% of the people are uneducated and can’t speak English, a Hollywood film comes and does business of 31.30 crore Nett India first day. India has around 5 famous film industries of it’s own where they make more than 2000 films a year and with biggest of home grown superstars but the biggest opening of the year so far is taken by Infinity war including dubbed versions.
Even a massively hyped film like Padmaavat does not stand the opening ground with Avengers this time. It just goes on to show that audience could not care less about who is making the film as long as it is good. Indian audience is very aware internationally these days and the collections are here to prove this statement. A Salman Khan film will open to this number but it would also include single screen collections though Avengers managed to do it mostly with multiplexes and IMAX. IMAX are so few in this country but if there were more, they would run housefull with this film.
In USA film managed to get the fourth biggest preview night opener by gathering $39 million. Highest preview night opener is Star Wars The Force Awakens banking $57 million. Opening weekend domestically in US should be somewhere between $225-250 million and almost equal to that would come from rest of the world. Black Panther which came out in February is the third highest domestic grosser in US of all time beating Titanic and exceptional world wide collections which has opened more door for Marvel. Infinity War might end up grossing $1.5 billion on worldwide lifetime and become the highest grossing superhero film of all time.
