“Avengers: Infinity War” is expected to make enough money to fill multiple bank vaults when it opens in late April.
The Hollywood Reporter reported the following:
Disney and Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is tracking to open to a huge $200 million-plus at the domestic box office.
Projections could easily climb higher in the three weeks that remain before the movie’s debut in theaters on April 27. Disney insiders are being more conservative, suggesting $175 million to $200 million.
Only seven films have ever opened to $175 million or more domestically, not adjusting for inflation.
Ladies and gentlemen, that is a lot of money by any metric you can think of. It hasn’t even opened yet, and it’s already projected to have one of the eight biggest openings in film history.
Not a bad deal by any measure. I think we’re really in the prime moment for super hero movies. You can’t release one of these movies without them blowing up. They’re the definition of cash cows and ATMs for the studios.
This also might be the most ambition super hero movie ever made. It’s combining the entire marvel universe and bringing in the crew from “Guardians of the Galaxy.” That’s a pretty huge move from the studio, but big wins require big risks. I have a solid feeling that it’ll work out just fine for everybody involved.
You can catch “Avengers: Infinity War” in theaters April 27.
