In case you hadn’t heard, Avengers: Infinity War made a little bit of money at the box office last weekend. The Marvel sequel earned enough to smash the record for the biggest opening weekend of all time, previously set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015. In fact, it smashed all sorts of records all over the world. And that meant Lucasfilm had to pass the baton.
It has become tradition for whoever smashes box office records to receive some kind of congratulations from the previous record holder. It’s a tradition George Lucas and Steven Spielberg started as the directors frequently exchanged titles thanks to the success of Jaws, Star Wars, and E.T. The Extra Terrestrial.
