Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War seems to be a financial success with the movie raking in over $630 million worldwide in box office takings after its weekend debut, according to Bloomberg and ComScore Inc.
Disney stated to Bloomberg that of the $630 million that the movie brought in, “an estimated $250 million of that was collected in U.S. and Canadian theaters, beating independent forecasts of about $230 million.”. The film earned $380 million elsewhere in the global market.
After 10 years of build-up, Avengers: Infinity War seems to have delivered the goods so to speak with critics and fans alike praising the movie with generally favourable reviews.
Dave Hollis, president of worldwide theatrical distribution for Disney explained that “They’ve created stakes because of how much people care for these characters and the worlds that they inhabit, and having brought them all together, that made this a can’t-miss, must-see-it on opening weekend, must-see-it-in-a-movie-theater kind of experience.”.
According to Bloomberg Intelligence, the movie cost around $300 million to make and many tens of millions more to market. Having earned more than double that back in the first weekend since release, we’re sure that Disney are quite pleased by their hard work.
We reviewed the movie last week and thought it was pretty great so if you haven’t seen it yet, we suggest you rectify that immediately.
