MANILA, Philippines — Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” claims to continue to make history at the Philippine box office as it became the "all-time highest-grossing movie" in the country after only six days of release, the studios said in a press statement on May 1.

Cementing its phenomenal run, the epic action-adventure achieved the feat with a gross sales of P730.1 million, outpacing Disney’s 2017 live-action “Beauty and the Beast,” whose entire run of P677.1 million formerly held the record.

The top six films ever released in the Philippines were reportedly all from Disney.  Besides the two, the rest are “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Marvel’s The Avengers” and “Iron Man 3.”

Last Sunday, “Avengers: Infinity War” already shattered the "all-time biggest opening weekend" record with a five-day opening weekend gross of P650.1 million.  

These slew of records may be jaw-dropping but hardly a surprise. Fan anticipation for the 19th film in Marvel Studios' stellar 10-year history has been fever-pitch, as the stakes have never been higher story-wise, this marking the end of Phase 3.  There is a palpable feeling that the revelations will come to a point of no return, and fans are bracing themselves for the inevitable. Regardless of the conclusion, the excitement has translated into incredible box office sales, with moviegoers and Marvels fans seeing the film more than once.

“Avengers: Infinity War” rolled out in 849 screens across the country, with an estimate of over 2.4 million admissions.
