Marvels’ Cinematic Universe is storming the box office with full force. The studio’s latest film, Avengers: Infinity War, debuted as the biggest opening for a Marvel film and the best domestic and global debut of all time, according to Variety.

Infinity War, the latest in a back-to-back rollout of Marvel films, brought in $258 million in North America and $382 million internationally for a total of $640 million globally. The film has not reached China yet, where is expected to set additional records. 

The weekend numbers surpassed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which bowed at $248 million domestically and was the previous highest grossing domestic open as well as The Fate of the Furious, which formerly held the highest global opening weekend of all time.

Industry professionals cite the success of Marvel’s films, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Black Panther , as launch pads for the film, which includes all of the recent films’ characters.
