Infinity War to become highest grossing film of all time?

Infinity War to become highest grossing film of all time?

The studio's president, Kevin Feige, told the BBC (via Screen Rant) during the "Avengers: Infinity War" promotional campaign that there is a chance that Kamala will be included in the film universe after they have established Carol Danvers in her own movie. The filmmakers will also use IMAX cameras to shoot the entirety of the next Avengers film, which is slated for release in May 2019. It's now the fifth highest grossing film of all time worldwide.

Domestically, "Infinity War" grossed $61.8 million last weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday, to win its third straight weekend. The sequel is expected to have a domestic opening north of $150 million.

It must be noted that import films such as Ready Player One, Tomb Raider, Pacific Rim: Uprising and Rampage opened bigger in China than the American market this year. What's more, the Disney/Marvel film launched to more than $200 million in China, giving it a global haul of more than $343 million over the weekend.

The ship's chief engineering commander, Hu Wenming, told the broadcaster the carrier was smaller than US carriers' Nimitz class. The CNN report also pointed out that the vessel passing its sea trials, does not necessarily mean it is combat-ready.

With Thursday previews bringing in $39 million (Rs 263 crore), Infinity War crossed the previous Marvel record of $27 million, set by Age of Ultron.

Avengers: Infinity War featured an astonishing number of superheroes, and a decent amount of side-characters from the various Marvel franchises.

The film has also become the fastest film to cross US$1 billion (S$1.34 billion) globally, with the possibility that it could hit US$2 billion by the end of its theatrical run, according to Forbes. In Avengers: Infinity War, the Avengers join forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to stop Thanos, who is trying to collect the Infinity Stones. In the video, Brolin, unfamiliar with Fortnite, notes that he didn't remember Thanos flying at any point in Infinity War, but he gladly would have done the motion capture for the dancing. I'm not saying it can't happen (the movie has defied all expectations at every turn) I just don't think it will. Make sure to let us know below, and if you have somehow gone this long without watching the film you can still catch it in theaters everywhere!
