Infinity War to become highest grossing film of all time?

Deadpool 2 Cable Josh Brolin Set Pic Infinity War to become highest grossing film of all time?

It was certainly a powerful moment in the film, especially for Peter and Gamora's relationship, which now spans three movies. The box office is likely to see a boost in coming weeks as "Deadpool 2" opens May 18 and "Solo: A Star Wars Story" bows on May 25. It is now the 11th highest-grossing import film of all-time and will soon dethrone Ready Player One, Jurassic World and Age of Ultron in the next few days.

Infinity War's $257 million (Rs 1700 crore) tally broke Star Wars: The Force Awakens' $248 million opening weekend record in the U.S., and The Fate of the Furious' $540 million worldwide opening record with a huge $641 million (Rs 4300 crore) haul.

On Saturday, AIW recorded a whopping 491 million yuan ($77.49 million), making it the second highest single-day total ever in the mainland, only behind Monster Hunt 2's 546 million yuan ($86.18 million) opening day. It ousted Universal's "The Fate of the Furious", which drew $541.9 million worldwide on its opening box office release in 2017.

Right off the bat you can safely assume that Avengers: Infinity War (which is only in it's third week of release) has another $70 million in the tank, so it will easily hop over Jurassic World to take the number 4 all-time slot. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that there are "plans" to bring Marvel's first teen Muslim superhero to the big screen, with a potential Ms. Marvel movie in the works after the release of Captain Marvel in 2019. In recent years, China has become a much-coveted market for Hollywood films and a quick look at the numbers illustrates why - last year alone China contributed $3.4 billion dollars to North American films. What's more, the Disney/Marvel film launched to more than $200 million in China, giving it a global haul of more than $343 million over the weekend.

Well, I guess we know where Thanos ended up at the end of Infinity War.

As for cracking the top two, I don't envision Infinity War pulling it off.

Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now!
