Avengers: Infinity War has been nothing short of a goliath, racking up accolade after accolade for its astounding box office performance in both the domestic and worldwide markets. Now, some are projecting that the film could come away with a massive profit of $600 million when all is said and done.
The projection comes from Deadline’s financial analysts, who believe the film will take home roughly $1.88 billion worldwide. The $600 million number is, of course, an estimate, as Disney does not comment on the profitability of its films.
Much of Infinity War’s success will hinge on its performance overseas. Disney staggered the film’s release globally, scheduling it to open in Russia on May 3 and on May 11 in China, so there is no telling just how much the movie will bring home worldwide just yet.
There is a chance Infinity War could break $2 billion globally, but that would require a major cash injection from Chinese audiences and result in 65% of the film’s gross coming from overseas -- a tall order, even for the country that dropped $207 million on Captain America: Civil War.
In theaters now, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.
