According to Fox News, it appeared as if every superhero fan and Marvel fan on the planet made way to a theater on opening weekend to watch Avengers: Infinity War. The blockbuster hit brought in over $250 million at box office during its opening weekend. This put the Marvel movie just ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens as the highest earning opening weekend at the box office of all-time.
Perhaps the bigger winner in this statistic, however, is Disney for owning nine of the ten top-earning opening weekends at box office of all time. Moreover, six of those nine highest earning films were none other than Marvel movies. This includes the recent Black Panther which has netted over $1.3 billion since it hit the theaters just a few months ago in February.
At this time, Proddatur rural police have no reason to believe Peddapasupula Baasha died of anything other than natural causes while watching Avengers: Infinity War this past week. However, the construction worker’s death is still under investigation.
