Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War becomes fastest film ever to cross US$1 billion

The blockbuster had no trouble turning new arrivals Overboard, Tully and Bad Samaritan to dust with a snap of its fingers.

This would mean Avengers Infinity War will end at about $760-800 million in North America. War's sophomore session is the second-best ever for a film's second weekend, surpassed only by the $149 million brought in by Star Wars: The Force Awakens during Christmas week in 2015. Aside from Infinity War's opening weekend, its drop from weekend to weekend has remained consistently around 30 percent. If Marvel is ever going to lose to anyone it definitely makes sense it would be a Star Wars film. Only $900k separates two Marvel films from the title. All together now, the new film from directors Joe and Anthony Russo has made $450.8 million domestically, and $1.16 billion globally. Whether it has what it takes to pass Black Panther near $700 million domestic haul remains to be seen. It also earned 162.6 million dollars internationally this weekend for an worldwide cume of 713.3 million dollars and global cume of 1,164.1 million dollars to date, according to studio figures collected by comScore.

Records are being set around the world, including for the biggest opening day ever in Russian Federation. The top five markets for Infinity War so far have been South Korea ($69.1 million), the United Kingdom ($67.2 million), Mexico ($48.7 million), Brazil ($44.3 million) and India with $35.7 million. The romantic comedy, starring popular Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris, grossed$14.8-M from 1,623 theaters to come in #2.

"Overboard" is now averaging a bleak 30 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Ticket buyers seemed pleased with what they saw.

United now have 77 points, which is 11 more than fifth-placed Chelsea. By then, United was 1-0 ahead thanks to Paul Pogba's 16th-minute goal.

Although critics were not especially won over by "Overboard", audiences gave the film a more favorable A- CinemaScore.

Slipping to No. 3 in its fifth weekend is Paramount Picture's "A Quiet Place". It has earned $46.8-M worldwide to date. "Rampage" rounded out the top five with $4.6 million, bumping its domestic total to $84.8 million. The comedy-drama directed by Jason Reitman and written by Diablo Cody has garnered a solid 89 per cent certified rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

"Avengers: Infinity War" set another record this weekend, destroying the box office competition and drumming up $1 billion faster than any other film on the books.
