It opens there May 11. It also went past Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson starrer Fate of the Furious with the former making $630 million and latter making $541.9 million at the worldwide box-office on opening weekend.
Fueled by word of mouth, Infinity War took in $83 million on Saturday, well ahead of the previous record holder, Universal's Jurassic World ($69.6 million). The film, released in four languages - Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu - across the country in over 2000 screens, registered higher opening day occupancy than the Hindi release of Baahubali 2.
Globally, Avengers - the third film in the Avengers saga and the 19th in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise - also broke records, clinching the highest worldwide opening of all time with a dizzying $630m. The film, which brings together the largest gathering of superheroes to battle it out against supervillain Thanos, also had the biggest day one opening ever for a Hollywood movie in India.
The two-hour and 40-minute film was shot over 18 months, with a sequel due out in May next year. Marvel spent years laying the groundwork for the big showdown, teasing its villain (Josh Brolin's Thanos) since 2014.
Overall, the film scored very well with critics, earning an 84% grade on Rotten Tomatoes. The Marvel film raked in Rs 94.30 crore in its opening weekend and is all set to cross the Rs 100 crore mark today. The tape surpasses Fast Furios 8, which until now housed world record of income in a first weekend with 543 million dollars (447 million euros). The company's summer slate will be key in reviving the North American box office and generating growth for theatre owners after a tough 2017. Independent forecasters were more bullish on "Infinity War".
This is expected that in the weekend movie will cross $230 million.
