This number just accounts for how much money the movie made in North America because its worldwide opening weekend is even much bigger.

The Avengers and the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe all assembled for the comic book superhero extravaganza in Avengers: Infinity War, and so did moviegoers.

Marvel Studios will release the next Avengers film ("Avengers 4", for now) in May 2019, expected to pick up after the events of "Infinity War".

Expectations were high for "Infinity War", the first instalment of a two-part finale, which will wrap up a whopping 20-film Disney franchise.

"Infinity War" opened at No. 1 in all territories. It now stands as the fourth highest preview total in history after Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2.

Infinity War notched the best start for a superhero pic in France ($17.7 million), Germany ($14.7 million) and Spain ($8.3), while it was the second-best superhero showing in Italy ($11 million). The superhero smorgasbord "Avengers: Infinity Wars" opened with predictable shock-and-awe, earning $250 million in box office over the weekend and edging past "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" to set the highest opening weekend of all-time. Paramount's "A Quiet Place", a horror film directed by John Krasinski, slid into second place with an additional $10.6 million, according to comScore, which compiles box office data. "Infinity War" brought in $630 million worldwide, which is almost $90 million more than last year's "Fate of the Furious" debut.

The net box office collections of Avengers: Infinity War is Rs 94.03 crore. It made $380 million from global territories, which is good enough for second biggest worldwide gross of all-time (the current record holder is The Fate of the Furious).

Avengers: Infinity War also marks the first full-fledged appearance of the mighty villain Thanos after his appearance in 2012's The Avengers for the first time. The Warner Bros. actioner has made $77.9 million domestically in its three weeks of release. Fourth place went to Rampage, which earned $7 million.
