Disney's "Avengers: Infinity War" crossed $1 billion in worldwide box office sales on Saturday, according to the studio. Today we learned the answer to that question, which is no, with Avengers: Infinity War easily taking the top spot with $112.4 million. The film opens in China, the second biggest movie market in the world, on May 11. This incident took place at Cinehub Multiplex theatre in Proddatur town in Andhra Pradesh's Kadapa district, where he worked in construction.

For further context, Infinity War is only the fifth film to rake in $100 million during its second weekend.

Internationally, Infinity War amassed another $162.6 million, thanks in part to a record breaking $17.6 million opening in Russian Federation, bringing the film's worldwide total to $713.3 million - with China still to come later this month.

MGM and Lionsgate's Pantelion Films' gender-swapped remake of Garry Marshall's 1987 comedy, "Overboard" scored the highest-grossing opening weekend for Pantelion Films with a better-than-expected $14.8 million from 1,623 theaters.

Hanging tough in third place was Paramount's A Quiet Place with an estimated $7.6 million from 3,413 screens.




Hollywood's summer movie season typically runs from the first weekend in May through Labor Day, but this year got a jump-start with the late April release of "Avengers: Infinity War".

Inch. "Avengers: Infinity War", $112.5 million ($162.6 million global). "Rampage" rounded out the top five with $4.6 million, bumping its domestic total to $84.8 million.

The film also features Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chadwick Boseman and Tom Holland.

Next weekend sees the arrival of Life of the Party starring Melissa McCarthy and the thriller Breaking In starring Gabrielle Union.
