Val Morgan has reported Avengers: Infinity War has become the second biggest movie opening of all time in Australia.
Infinity War made its debut in cinemas on Anzac Day with a massive $8.7m, claiming the title for the second biggest opening ever in Australia. The Walt Disney release opened on 871 screens.
Currently, the biggest opening day is held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which took $9.4m and went on to be the biggest opening weekend of all time with $27m. It’s likely Infinity War will follow suit to become the second-biggest opening weekend of all time.
The first Avengers film had a $6m opening day and went on to make over $53m at the box office.
With positive reviews from around the world, Infinity War is predicted to hit the $500m mark globally for its opening weekend.
