Avengers: Infinity War is projected to gross up to $2 billion at the worldwide box office, thus setting a new record for the highest-grossing summer release of all-time. The blockbuster movie – directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, and based on a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely – has been out for almost two weeks now, and it already managed to cross $1 billion in record time, while also setting a wide variety of new box office records both at home and abroad.
Right off the bat, Avengers: Infinity War set a new opening weekend record at the U.S. box office with a whopping $257.7 million, surpassing the 2015 behemoth Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Ever since then, the two films have been neck-in-neck with regards to domestic records. Infinity War nabbed several top-grossing single day records, while The Force Awakens still retains the second-weekend box office record. Still, a new report suggests that Avengers 3 just might give the Star Wars film a run for its money, overall.
