'Avengers: Infinity War' hits China, becomes fifth biggest film ever

Avengers: Infinity War is the biggest movie in the world, at the time of this writing it has grossed $502 million in the United States and $1,291 billion worldwide. Taking in another $349 million this weekend, and bringing its worldwide haul to $1.607 billion, it's officially passed The Avengers to grab the title. That's enough to become the fifth-highest grossing movie of all time, passing by Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Black Panther, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Furious 7, and the former king of the superhero box office, the original Marvel's The Avengers.

Avengers: Infinity War has already made enormous box-office gains on its opening day in China.

New Line and Melissa McCarthy's comedy, Life of the Party, came in No. 2 with $18.5 million from 3,656 theaters.

Reynolds is no stranger to box office records after Deadpool became the highest grossing R-rated film when it took $783m in 2016.

The Universal Pictures release is just the latest in a long string of successful collaborations with producer Will Packer, who also produced "Girl's Trip" and the "Ride Along" films.

MGM and Lionsgate's Pantelion Films' release of Overboard dipped just 31% in its second weekend delivering an estimated $10.1 million, pushing the film's domestic cume to $29.5 million after ten days in release.

It seems as though everyone and their dog has gone to see Marvel's new super hero team-up epic, Avengers: Infinity War.

Amitabh Bachchan received a lot of help from people on social media so that he could understand Infinity Wars. Tammy, debuted to $21.6 million in summer 2014, while The Boss, opened to $23.6 million in April 2016. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union's "Breaking In" launched in third with US$16.5 million in 2,537 locations.
