Disney/Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War had a domestic debut of $250 million, according to studio estimates Sunday, as published by the industry tracking site Box Office Mojo.
That tops the $247.9 million North American opening of 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens before adjusting for inflation. (Worth noting: Final numbers are due Monday, which could yet shrink or increase the Marvel movie's gap.)
In February, Disney/Marvel's The Black Panther opened to $202 million.
Disney, which owns both the Star Wars franchise and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is the distributor of five of the only six films to debut domestically north of $200 million, including The Avengers and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The only non-Disney film on the list is Universal's Jurassic World.
