New "the Avengers" set a record in the history of cinema

From a worldwide standpoint, Box Office Pro reports that Infinity War has grossed $1.16 billion around the world.

"Disney and Marvel's latest collaboration earned $112.5 million from 4,474 locations in its second frame", reported Rebecca Rubin of Variety. That film, of course, had the benefit of the Christmas holiday, which helped push it towards a record breaking $149.2 million second weekend.

Even with that drop in mind, it's worth noting that the film hasn't even opened in China, where it potentially stands to earn even more.

Domestically, Infinity War retained top spot with $112.5 million (the second-biggest second weekend ever), pushing its North American haul to $450.8 million.

It managed to be the fastest film to reach over $1 billion in a record setting 11 days beating the 12 days it took The Force Awakens to reach that milestone.

YouTuber Colin Furze has recreated the Avengers: Infinity War Hulkbuster suit exclusively through materials purchased on the eBay marketplace.

Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now. The Avengers ($1.52 billion) now holds the record for the biggest global total for a superhero film.

Overseas, the mega-Superhero group pic grossed another $162.6-M for a foreign total of $713.3-M and $1.164-B worldwide.

STX's Amy Schumer comedy I Feel Pretty placed #4 with $4.9-M for a soft tally of $37.8-M.

The top 10 is rounded out by Tully ($3.18 million), Black Panther ($3.14 million), Truth or Dare ($1.88 million), Super Troopers 2 ($1.81 million) and Bad Samaritan ($3.9 million).

"Black Panther", $3.1 million ($390,000 international).

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. This is thanks to the movie's release during the Christmas holidays!
