‘Infinity War’ to set record, fastest to surpass $1 billion
NEW YORK—“Avengers: Infinity War” is poised to set a record for fastest film to rake in 1 billion in business.
The Walt Disney Co. said Saturday that the Marvel superhero saga had earned just under 975 million in global box office through Friday.
Since the film earned nearly $70 million on Friday alone, the studio is confident it will pass the billion-dollar mark on Saturday, in 11 days.
The previous record of fastest time for a movie to make a 1 billion was 12 days for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
The star-stuffed “Infinity Wars” features Robert Downey Jr., Benedict Cumberbatch, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, and Chadwick Boseman, whose “Black Panther” movie has made more than 1.3 billion and remains in theaters.
