Just yesterday news came out that Avengers: Infinity War was tracking at an opening higher than $200 million, and today an updated estimate has arrived.
According to Boxoffice.com, Infinity War is now tracking at $225 million for the opening weekend, and a $586 million domestic haul. Those numbers are up 5% and 9% respectively from last week.
Honestly that number is just going to continue to climb. With three weeks until release, and the audience awareness and first choice numbers dwarfing Star Wars: The Force Awakens; that $247 million opening record may be in jeopardy.
