Big B didn't understand 'Avengers: Infinity War' at all

Fortnite Thanos Marvel @ the Avengers

When it comes to Twitter, Amitabh Bachchan is very active.

As of Wednesday, Infinity War has grossed $1.251 billion, with $479 million made in the United States and $772 million in global markets. The film is set to quickly break the $200 million mark, which puts it on pace to beat Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is now the highest grossing MCU film in China.

Do you think Avengers: Infinity War has the momentum to top the worldwide grosses of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2 billion) and Avatar (2.7 billion)?

One of his followers pointed out to him that he should have checked out the MCU starter pack before watching the movie.

The weekend's major studio releases, Life of the Party starring Melissa McCarthy and Breaking In starring Gabrielle Union, performed about as anticipated. And that has led to a multi-record-breaking box office performance. It's now the fifth highest grossing film of all time worldwide. The movie's early industry projections have it opening around $150 million.

Universal's Breaking In, a thriller produced by Will Packer, followed at No. 3 with $16.5 million from 2,532 cinemas. "We'll get it set for the next two or three months". In this edition of Nerdist News Jessica Chobot explains why a detail from the toy version of Thor's new weapon might mean there's a chance for a third Groot to grow up and take the place of his felled ancestors. And rounding out the top five was "A Quiet Place" with $6.4 million. This brings the estimated opening total close to $76 million.

Well, Marvel's reign of terror doesn't seem to be ending any time soon, as the film has reported massive turn-outs in global markets as well. "Hopefully, the marketplace will expand over Memorial Day weekend to accommodate these big films". And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend past year. With that said, it will soon face some stiff competition, with Deadpool 2 opening this week and Solo: A Star Wars Story the week after. Both movies include the now built-in ticketing fee that we've talked about before, but local currency is really what counts.
