As of now, Avengers: Infinity War's domestic total stands at $450.8 million, with $713.3 million from foreign territories for a global total of $1.164 billion.

There was little new competition this weekend, but a few alternative options including the "Overboard" remake, which scored the highest-grossing opening weekend for Pantelion Films with $14.8 million from 1,623 theaters.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and made for close to $300 million, Infinity War marks the third Avengers film and the 19th installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"It is wonderful to possess a huge base especially in the wake of 'Avengers, "'" Presburger said.

Although critics were not especially won over by "Overboard", audiences gave the film a more favorable A- CinemaScore.

The only other new movie was the Charlize Theron starring TULLY, which opened in sixth place.

Infinity War fell 56 percent domestically, a respectable decline for a superhero tentpole.

"A Quiet Place" takes third with $7.6 million (cume now $159.9 million), while a weekend haul of $4.9 million positions "I Feel Pretty" at #4 (cume now $37.8 million).

Rounding out the top five was Warner/New Line's Rampage with an estimated $4.6 million from 3,151 screens.

"This was not the strongest weekend ever in terms of the official kick-off of the summer season, but we could be looking at a record May ultimately", Dergarabedian said, noting upcoming releases like "Deadpool 2" (May 18) and "Solo: A Star Wars Story" (May 25).

According to ComScore, overall box office is up 5.1 percent year-to-date. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chadwick Boseman and Tom Holland also features in Avengers: Infinity War. The blockbuster hit the mark in just 11 days - the fastest in film history.

Avengers: Infinity War is receiving a splendid response in India too. Infinity War managed to slighly edge out fellow Marvel film Black Panther's $111.6 million second weekend.
