After watching Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War, fans can relieve the terror of supervillain Thanos by streaming the biggest movie of the year's official soundtrack. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has enthusiastically tweeted support for Infinity War all weekend, which is only fitting because the Guardians play a major role within the film. Infinity War ranks as the No. 2 foreign bow of all time. As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the highly anticipated superhero film earned Rs 31.30 crore on the opening day and subsequently earned Rs 30.50 crore and Rs 32.5 crore on second and third day.

It trails the Spanish side by two away goals, meaning it needs to score a minimum of two goals to stand a chance of winning the tie.

However, taking inflation into account would mean the Star Wars film still holds the United States record, with about $260m (£188.5m) in today's dollars. Adding that to the $282.7 million in ticket sales internationally puts the film at $640.9 million in its first few days alone-well over halfway to a billion dollars. All but one of Marvel's 19 cinematic universe releases has scored an A CinemaScore.

Infinity War had the pull of big name actors playing their superhero counterparts such as Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man, Chris Evans' Captain America, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther.

The Dallas Cowboys trade for speedster Tavon Austin
Austin had 1,689 career yards receiving in five disappointing seasons with the Rams after getting drafted eighth overall in 2013. Austin gets a fresh start in Dallas, which turned around and traded away fellow wide receiver Ryan Switzer not long thereafter.

Domestically, Infinity War grossed $250 million over the weekend, shattering the opening-weekend record previously held by another Disney film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. A $300 million plus haul is expected from the global markets, meaning it would topple The Fate of the Furious' $541.9 million for the biggest worldwide opening in history.

On day 1, April 25, the movie collected $40 million from the global market, followed by $55 million on the next day. The film, released in four languages - Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu - across the country in over 2000 screens, registered higher opening day occupancy than the Hindi release of Baahubali 2. The film has become 2018's highest Hollywood earner in India so far what with making a gross box office business of Rs 120.09 crore. Fourth place went to Rampage, which earned $7 million.
