When Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27, it looks as though it will be taking in a considerable amount at the box office.
The latest projections are placing the third Avengers film on track to take in between $175 to $200 million over the course of its opening weekend. With three weeks to go, however, there are already rumblings that it could creep towards a $250M opening. If it reaches that number it would make it the biggest opening ever, beating out the $248M taken in by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In total, only seven films have ever opened to more than $175M, and four of them have been Marvel films: The Avengers – $207.4M, Black Panther – $202M, Avengers: Age of Ultron – $191.3M, Captain Americal Civil War – $179.1M.
With the recent success of Black Panther, some of that is sure to transfer to Avengers: Infinity War. It isn’t so much if this film will be a success as it will be just how it really can go. Right now it seems as though the sky is the limit.
