The numbers are in and Avengers: Infinity War has dusted all previous box office record to dethrone the previous king, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

In the US, Infinity War set a new record with a $250 million opening weekend. That bests Star Wars’ previous record of $247.9 million. Having the biggest Saturday in history at $82 million helped as well:

Even bigger, Avengers: Infinity War is the first movie in history to open above $600 million wordwide with a global box office take of $630 million this weekend:

Opening the movie everywhere at once certainly helped its box office, and if it continues at this pace it’s likely to continue shattering records. $1 billion is going to happen very, very quickly with this one.
