"Avengers: Infinity War" features over a dozen superheroes, who come together to save the universe from their might opponent, Thanos.
As of Wednesday, Infinity War has grossed $1.251 billion, with $479 million made in the United States and $772 million in global markets. Globally the film has now grossed over $1.6 billion- $200 million of which was from its massive opening in China this weekend. The movie now sits at $1.606 billion worldwide and $547.8 million domestic.
Another new film, "Breaking In", a thriller starring Gabrielle Union, was third at $16.8 million. "We've had one or two experiences early in our careers where we didn't do that and we learned a very hard lesson: When you try to predict what an audience wants, you're going to make mush".
The movie is the culmination of 10 years of filmmaking which Marvel has referred to as the "most ambitious crossover event in history", something that the Internet has latched onto and mocked relentlessly for weeks.

The second weekend of Lionsgate and Pantelion's comedy "Overboard" landed in fourth with $10 million, while the sixth weekend of Paramount's "A Quiet Place" secured No. 5 with $6.3 million.

Outside the top five, and landing in the top ten for the 13th consecutive week, is Disney and Marvel's Black Panther.
