'Avengers: Infinity War' now fastest film to earn $1 bn worldwide

Varun-dhawan-Hawkeye

The film cruised past the cumulative total of numerous wildly successful predecessors in the Marvel cinematic universe, including Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

Avengers: Infinity War is going to be released in China on May 11th.

There was little new competition this weekend, but a few alternative options including the "Overboard" remake, which scored the highest-grossing opening weekend for Pantelion Films with $14.8 million from 1,623 theaters. It's now the fastest movie to cross the $1 billion milestone at the global box office. The new "Overboard" was directed by Rob Greenberg, the film stars Anna Faris, Eugenio Derbez, and John Hannah.

In the third spot was Paramount's sci-fi horror film "A Quiet Place", at $7.6 million.

That said, Infinity War's $112.5 million represents a decline of 56 percent from its opening weekend, which is notably steeper than either The Force Awakens (40 percent) or Black Panther (45 percent), and on par with Warner Bros'. ill-fated Justice League, though better than predecessor Avengers: Age of Ultron (59 percent).

STX's comedy "I Feel Pretty" landed in fourth-place on the domestic charts, only making $4.9M across 3,232 locations during the film's third weekend in theaters.

Set to close the weekend with $4.6 million (for a cumulative total of $84.8 million), "Rampage" takes #5.

Focus Features' "Tully", with Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Mark Duplass, and Ron Livingston, debuted with $3 million in 1,353 theaters. "This weekend just shows how the strategy of release dates is changing how the box office plays out".

Electric Entertainment's "Bad Samaritan" earned $1.76 million, having been forecast to generate $1.9 million, according to Box Office Pro.
