How much money every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie made opening weekend, including the record-breaking 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Marvel Studios

Millions of people turned out for Marvel’s latest film, “Avengers: Infinity War,” over the weekend.

The film broke the opening weekend box-office record, beating the opening of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” with $US258 million. It also broke the Sunday box-office record with $US69.2 million.

It’s the latest successful entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In February, “Black Panther” also broke records, becoming the highest February opening of all time, and (until now) the highest four-day gross for a MCU movie.

But even that four-day weekend couldn’t topple “Infinity War.”
