We knew it was possible, but now it’s starting to look likely. ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ opens this weekend, and it might have a shot at history.
According to the experts, the Marvel flick is expected to earn between $225 and $245 million, but some reports claim it could pass the $250 million mark. If that happens, it’ll be the first film ever to make $250 million in its opening weekend at the box office.
Right now, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ holds the top spot, bringing home $247 million in 2015. Second on the list is Star Wars: The Last Jedi followed by Jurassic World.
It’s almost certain that it will take the second spot, but we’ll have to wait and see if it can grab the number one spot. By the way, this movie worked with a budget of around $350 million, so it needs every last bit of that $250 million opening.
“‘Infinity War’ picks up two years after the events of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ with the Avengers teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to stop the evil Thanos from inter-galactic dominance.
