Infinity was is now the fifth biggest movie of all time behind Jurassic World ($1.671 billion), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion), Titanic ($2.187 billion), and Avatar ($2.788 billion) and appears to be a safe bet to become only the fourth movie ever to crack the $2 billion mark.

After dominating the global box office for three weeks straight, Avengers: Infinity War has now claimed the crown and become the highest grossing superhero film of all-time.

Internationally, Life of the Party opened in eight markets and grossed an estimated $2.9 million including a $1.5 million second place debut in Australia and an $858k fourth place opening in the UK.

Universal's Breaking In, a thriller produced by Will Packer, followed at No. 3 with $16.5 million from 2,532 cinemas.

Of course, "Avengers: Infinity War" still reigned supreme, taking in another $61.8 million domestically.

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.

This may seem like a silly question to ask of a film like Avengers: Infinity War, but looking at the numbers and figures it may be hard for the film to turn a profit while in theaters.

So It makes sense that Disney would want to keep things on the down low when it comes to what the real budget it, suffice it to say if the budget was "only" $250-300 million Disney would have no issue reporting it, so its likely to be much higher. The movie's early industry projections have it opening around $150 million. The movie's domestic total through Sunday is $29.6 million. "Black Panther" still holds the domestic superhero title with $696 million. The original DEADPOOL opened with just over $130 million and DEADPOOL 2 should crush that number. Paramount's Book Club and Global Road's Show Dogs also enter theaters next Friday.
