The Infinity War edition of Birth.Movies.Death. magazine is on sale now.
Here's a staggering piece of information from Variety:
“Avengers: Infinity War isn’t opening for another two weeks, but the Marvel title is already on a record-breaking track.
Currently, the superhero tentpole is selling more than double the amount of tickets on Fandango that Black Panther sold at the same point in the sales cycle. In fact, Infinity War is currently outpacing the last seven Marvel movies combined, including massive titles like Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Captain America: Civil War."
That ... is an insane statistic. The last seven Marvel movies combined?
That's not all, either: according to Variety, Infinity War is also on track to become the biggest preseller ever for the month of April, as well as the biggest preseller in the superhero genre. Disney's estimating a $175M-200M opening for the film, but that's actually the conservative estimate. The real question seems to be how far past the $200M mark Infinity War might land over the course of its opening weekend.
The BMD staff's been placing its own bets on where Infinity War's opening box office tally will end up, but we're curious: where do you think this is headed? Think Infinity War will crack $200M? Think it'll shoot straight past that and into the $225M range? Do you somehow believe that everyone's wrong and Infinity War will actually end up fizzling out with an embarrassing $3M opening? Place your bets in the comments below.
Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27th. The Infinity War edition of BMD magazine can be acquired at this link, while supplies last.
