Although many people expected Infinity War to do gangbusters at the box office, none of the tracking or analyses expected it to shatter records the way it's done.

So far on its opening weekend, Avengers: Infinity War has made a total of $630,000,000 worldwide - $250,000,000 of which was made in the US alone - which makes it both the highest weekend in the US and across the globe.

The previous worldwide record holder, Fast & Furious 8, had a total of $541.9 million whilst The Force Awakens was set at $529 million back in 2015. The precise details of Infinity War's take here in Ireland have yet to be revealed, but it seems pretty likely that if it topped the worldwide box office, it did the same here.
