Put a whole bunch of superheroes together and what do you get? A film that completely smashes box office records, that’s what.

In its opening weekend, Avengers: Infinity War has cemented itself as an almighty contender, taking over Star Wars: The Force Awakens in domestic box office gross.

Avengers: Infinity War has set a new record with an estimated total of $250 million, surpassing the 2015 film which earned $247.9 million in its opening weekend.

In addition to the massive total domestically, Avengers also made an impressive showing globally, taking in $630 million.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Marvel film — which has left fans reeling — has claimed domestic records for the largest single Saturday gross, largest single Sunday gross, largest April opening, largest Spring opening, widest PG-13 release and fastest film to $150, $200 and $250 million.

The Force Awakens concluded its run with a domestic box office gross of $936.6 million, making it the all-time record to beat.

We dare say that if anyone can beat that, it’s the Avengers.
