'Avengers: Infinity War' Becomes the Highest Grossing Superhero Movie of All Time

Lydia FlemingMay 14, 2018

Avengers: Infinity War, which was released on the 27th of April, has broken many records in box offices all over the world.

Not only that, but it's also now the fifth-highest grossing movie ever, jumping over heavy hitters like Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Black Panther, Age of Ultron, Furious 7 and the aforementioned Avengers. It saw a solid holdover in North America, making $10 million in its second weekend, for a domestic tally of 29.6 million. Unlike normal superhero movies, Avengers Infinity War treads on a different path with (SPOILER ALERT BEGINS) the villains getting the upper hand over the heroes and emerging victorious (SPOILER ENDS).

Back in January, Big B had threatened to quit the micro-blogging site, Twitter, accusing it of reducing his followers. Marvel and Disney have high hopes for the movie's prospects in China.

Amitabh Bachchan received a lot of help from people on social media so that he could understand Infinity Wars.

It is not uncommon for films with a massive budget to be eviscerated by news sources, take for example when The Hollywood Reporter nearly destroyed The Legend of Tarzan when they reported an unverified source that reported its budget as 2 times what the studio had reported ended up changing the entire conversation on the budget and now that outlets reported budget is what is listed everywhere despite much evidence to the contrary.

That's probably the least you can do to show your mother how much you love her and everything she does for you on a daily basis. Perhaps you have a woman in your life who's given a child up for adoption, or alternately know someone who's lost a child.

Next week sees the release of DEADPOOL 2, which should easily dethrone AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. While the No. 2 comedy launch of the year so far behind Blockers ($20.6 million), Life of the Party nevertheless marks McCarthy's lowest starts in recent years.

Universal's Breaking In finished in third position with an estimated $16.5 million. That's well behind the $24.3 million launch of Packer's thriller No Good Deed in 2014. The film follows Gabrielle Union as a mother trying to rescue her children who are being held hostage by intruders in her house.

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. The two films skewed heavily female, or 70 percent and 65 percent, respectively. That makes it the second-fastest title ever to cross the $500 million mark domestically.

The Anthony and Joe Russo directorial earned 257.69 million dollars in its opening weekend, breaking the previous record holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens that had opened at 248 million dollars.

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. And that's without such major markets as China, France and Japan, where it has yet to open.
