If Infinity War makes all its money upfront quick and fast, perhaps the film won't be able to dethrone Star Wars' monumental all-time domestic haul of $936.6 million.
However, the film lost out to Star Wars: The Force Awakens which grossed an wonderful $149 million in its second ever weekend. After posting the biggest-ever opening weekend, the movie has now crossed $1 billion globally.
In such an unsurprising way that it's nearly not even fun anymore, Avengers: Infinity War continues to rake in big bucks at the box office for both Marvel, and of course, Disney. The next Avengers film also topped "The power Awakens" into post the bestever US opening last weekend.
Infinity War is now the 34th movie ever to pass $1 billion, joining the likes of Avatar, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Frozen, Skyfall, and Minions.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to set records.
The film's continued success reinforces the dominance of both Disney and Marvel studios in Hollywood.
Dwayne Johnson's Rampage, from Warner Bros., a unit of Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) rounded out the Top 5 with $4.6-M to finish Sunday with a global box office of $377.9-M.
Charlize Theron's new movie Tully, in which she plays a desperate new mum, debuts at six with $3.2 million (GBP2.3 million). Looking ahead to next weekend, only two movies will arrive in wide release, with Universal's thriller Breaking In, starring Gabrielle Union, and New Line Cinema's Life of the Party, starring Melissa McCarthy.
In third spot was Paramount's sci-fi horror film "A Quiet Place", at $7.6 million.
This overtakes Black Panther impressive second weekend total of $111 million.
While the three newcomers going up against Avengers: Infinity War weren't expected to provide any sort of meaningful competition, one did fare far better than expected.
