‘Infinity War’ set to be fastest to net $1b

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ is poised to set a record for fastest film to rake in $1 billion in business.


The Walt Disney Co said Saturday that the Marvel superhero saga had earned just under $975 million in global box office through Friday. Since the film earned nearly $70 million on Friday alone, the studio is confident it will pass the billion-dollar mark on Saturday, in 11 days.


The previous record of fastest time for a movie to make a $1 billion was 12 days for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”


The star-stuffed ‘Infinity Wars’ features Robert Downey Jr, Benedict Cumberbatch, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, and Chadwick Boseman, whose ‘Black Panther’ movie has made more than $1.3 billion and remains in theatres.
