Avengers: Infinity War - Gamora Really Dead?

It became the biggest ever opening for a film at the global box office and has had high praise from audiences and critics worldwide with a total box office to date of $1.6M globally making it already the fifth biggest film of all time worldwide.

The movie's domestic haul of $61.8 million was the fourth-biggest gross for a film in its third weekend behind Black Panther ($66 million), Avatar ($68 million) Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($90 million) after racing past the first Avengers ($56M), not adjusted for inflation.

Walt Disney Co.'s latest super-hero film topped the box office for a third week in a row, even as some studios pitched mom-friendly offerings.

The success of "Infinity War" in China is a reminder of the importance of the world's fastest-growing market to Hollywood.

"Avengers: Infinity War" features over a dozen superheroes, who come together to save the universe from their might opponent, Thanos. The movie now sits at $1.606 billion worldwide and $547.8 million domestic.

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. It made an estimated $6.4 million. The film also enjoyed a solid weekend internationally where it brought in $2.8 million from 55 markets as it passed $100 million internationally with releases in China, France and Japan still to go.

Well, Marvel's reign of terror doesn't seem to be ending any time soon, as the film has reported massive turn-outs in global markets as well. The film will expand to 350 theaters next weekend.

Next weekend will see the release of Fox's Deadpool 2 into a massive 4,250 locations, which will make it the widest R-rated release ever, surpassing the 4,103 locations It opened in last September. They also rep the No. 9 western release of all time in the Middle Kingdom after just three days. This must have definitely gone OTT over the superstar, having not watched any of the previous movies, we assume.
