In this third Avengers film, the heroes must stop the universe's most unsafe being, Thanos, before he can gather the six legendary infinity stones, which would make him basically unstoppable.
Globally, Avengers - the third film in the Avengers saga and the 19th in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise - also broke records, clinching the highest worldwide opening of all time with a dizzying $630m.
"Infinity War" also brought in an estimated $250 million domestically this weekend. The MCU's Guardians are closely linked to Gunn, and he personally made sure that their portrayal in Infinity War was consistent with his take on the characters. As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. 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.
Many superhero movies came close to breaking the record, with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice coming the closest after it recorded preview collection of $27.7 million.
The net box office collections of Avengers: Infinity War is Rs 94.03 crore. It also went past Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson starrer Fate of the Furious with the former making $630 million and latter making $541.9 million at the worldwide box-office on opening weekend.
First, "Avengers: Infinity War" had the best domestic opening of all time, just scooting past "Star Wars: Episode VII", which brought in almost $248 million in 2015. "Fate" still holds the record for global (worldwide total minus USA domestic) with $443.2.
No other films opened in wide release this weekend. The question now is whether it can pass TFA's total numbers and/or become the first movie ever to pass $1 billion in the domestic box office alone. The list is led by "Avengers: Infinity War" (English and dubbed versions), followed by "Baaghi 2", "Padmaavat", "PadMan" and "Raid".
In a very distant second place was John Krasinski's A Quiet Place with $10.7 million.
