Marvel’s The Avengers: Infinity War is currently tracking to open in a few weeks with a weekend box office total that will fall north of the $200 million mark.
Deadline is reporting from industry sources that the Marvel Studios film, which looks like it will be bringing ten years of storylines across its seventeen previous cinematic universe entries together, is tracking higher in certain polling of moviegoers than films like The Force Awakens, Black Panther and Jurassic World did at a similar point prior to those films’ release.
Infinity War has already broken one record. When advance tickets went on sale on March 16, Fandango announced that the film broke the 24-hour sales records of all previous superhero movies, including Black Panther, in just six hours.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film –
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
The Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27, 2018.
