The opening weekend figures for Avengers: Infinity War are in.

Brace yourselves.

This weekend Avengers: Infinity War has achieved $630 million at the worldwide box office – breaking the record for the highest grossing opening weekend of all time.

This equates to $250 million at the US box office and a further $380 million internationally. According to Box Office Mojo, in the US the movie opened in 4,474 theatres.

It’s worth noting that Infinity War‘s box office total doesn’t take into account China – a huge market for movies. Avengers: Infinity War doesn’t open in China until May 11th, so the $630 million figure is without one of the world’s largest markets as a contributor.

I think a round of applause is needed.
