“Avengers: Infinity War” UPDATE: Weekend Total Was More Than Thought: $258.2 US, $640.8 Mil Worldwide


It was a really MARVEL-ous weekend more than anyone thought.

Not only did “Infinity War” break records and have the biggest opening weekend ever…

The Marvel super hero extravaganza took in $8.2 million more than estimated.

The total US was $258.2 million, with a total worldwide of $640.8 million. Yowza!

Now all Marvel has to figure out is how to un-dead all those franchise characters. Maybe they can make it like Bobby Ewing’s dream on “Dallas.” Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye– not in this movie– will wake up, turn to Scarlett Johansson, and tell her last night’s pepperoni pizza didn’t agree with him! Nightmare!
