It has been around a week since Avengers: Infinity War released in theaters worldwide - excluding China - and every single day has resulted in a new box office record. According to the filmmaker, it'll hit cinemas two years from this week.
Yet one factor may be sneakily making its presence felt: the success of Black Panther's opening just 10 weeks before.
I won't go into the whole Infinity Stone thing, other than they've played a part in many past Marvel films, and they all come together and truly show their meaning and goal in this movie as Thanos adds them, one by one, to his Infinity Gauntlet.
In fact, almost half of those films that came out within five months of one another had an opening-weekend variance of no more than 11 percent. They opened to exactly the same amount as one another. The box also features a different type of finish which seems to be a kevlar finish on the box with a chequered pattern which is also the art of a promo video which OnePlus revealed a week ago about the Avenger Infinity War edition.
Which Marvel movie was the hardest to make for each of them? He notes that when Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans - a.k.a. Thor and Captain America - began filming for "The Avengers" in 2011, the solo film debuts hadn't even been released yet. The result of that conversation was establishing a specific three-part arc that would play out across Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers 4 - and knowing what we now know, we should be in for some fantastic developments next summer. Except he did that next to a really pissed off Don Cheadle, on TV, 9 months before the movie came out. Some might say that's too much too quickly - the fear among a number of Hollywood analysts had been of a Marvel overload.
