Seeing as it's the movie everyone's talking about right now, this probably comes as no surprise. As of 29 April 2018, Avengers: Infinity War officially has the highest opening weekend of all time in Malaysia!
Released on 25 April, the Marvel juggernaut has raked in USD8.4 million (RM33 million) in the Malaysian box office, smashing the previous record held by Fast and Furious 8
This also puts Avengers: Infinity War on track to overtake yet another Fast and Furious movie for the title of highest-grossing film of all time in Malaysia
Avengers: Infinity War has also broken the record for biggest worldwide opening of all time, debuting at USD630 million (RM2.47 billion) globally... and the movie hasn't even opened in China yet
In a report by The Hollywood Reporter, the superhero epic bested previous record holder Fast and Furious 8, having made nearly USD100 million (RM392.3 million) more than the Universal outing across the globe.
No doubt, Avengers: Infinity War will be hauling in even more moolah when it premieres in China on 11 May.
