It's official. Avengers: Infinity War—the penultimate chapter in Marvel's now decade-plus superhero saga—is a hit. Actually that's understating it a bit. It's the biggest opening weekend film in the history of films and weekends, racking up $258 million domestically and another $382 million worldwide for an astounding $640-million-dollar debut. Before the film eclipses a billion (sometime on Friday, according to eye-popping projections), we decided to take a look at what that tidy weekend sum will buy you in the weird, wild, obscenely expensive world of sports.
