'Avengers' Topples Melissa McCarthy Movie at the Box Office

'Avengers' Topples Melissa McCarthy Movie at the Box Office

As it stands, Infinity War is now the highest grossing superhero release internationally of all-time with its $1.059 billion topping the $946.4 million for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

"Infinity War" basically sucked the life out of the other big release of the weekend, New Line/Warner Bros.'s "Life of the Party". In this case, rival studios avoided Avengers as much as possible. Life of the Party will take in about $18.5 million at 3,656 domestic theaters.

Avengers: Infinity War had a MASSIVE marketing campaign, blockbuster films of this level often spend around $150 million on marketing, It has been reported by Deadline that Disney spent north of that number for the film. Tammy, debuted to $21.6 million in summer 2014, while The Boss, opened to $23.6 million in April 2016. The comedy stars McCarthy as Deanna Miles, who, shortly after her dropping her daughter Maddie (Molly Gordon) off at college, learns that her husband (Matt Walsh) is leaving her for another woman (Julie Bowen). That's well behind the $24.3 million launch of Packer's thriller No Good Deed in 2014. Breaking In features Union as single mother Shaun Russell, who takes her two children (Seth Carr and Ajiona Alexus) to her family's Malibu estate after her father's death.

Directed by James McTeigue from a script by Ryan Engle, Breaking In, co-stars Billy Burke, Richard Cabral, Ajiona Alexus, Levi Meaden, Jason George, Seth Carr and Christa Miller.

While Avengers: Infinity War may not have appealed to Mr Bachchan, the film has earned over Rs 200 crore at the Indian box-office to become the only Hollywood project to achieve the feat. The movie's domestic total through Sunday is $29.6 million. That makes it the second-fastest title ever to cross the $500 million mark domestically.

The second weekend of Lionsgate and Pantelion's comedy "Overboard" landed in fourth with US$10 million, while the sixth weekend of Paramount's "A Quiet Place" secured No. 5 with US$6.3 million.
