'Avengers' Topples Melissa McCarthy Movie at the Box Office

Fortnite Wield The Power Of The Infinity Gauntlet In This Limited Time Special Event

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.

In its third weekend, Disney and Marvel's superhero blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War continues to dominate the box office, earning an estimated $61.8 million from 4,474 theaters in the USA and Canada while trouncing McCarthy's new comedy Life of the Party and Union's new thriller Breaking In. Melissa McCarthy's comedy "Life of the Party" debuted in second with US$18.5 million from 3,656 locations.

That was better than the critical mauling received by Universal Pictures' "Breaking In", which generated $16.5 million against a forecast of $15 million from Box Office Pro.

At this point, box office analysts now expect Avengers: Infinity War to tap out at around $1.8 billion - just shy of that elusive $2 billion milestone that has so far remained exclusive to holiday films, such as Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It made $281.3 million this weekend from 55 global markets, including a massive $200 million launch in China. We were anticipating a little more out of this title, but it still managed to outperform the studio's expectations and almost triple its reported $6 million budget in its first three days of release.

Additionally, Breaking In opened in five global markets this weekend with an estimated $1 million, including a fifth place finish in the United Kingdom with an estimated $609k.

The movie is the second fastest ever to cross the half-billion mark at the domestic box office. Marvel and Disney have high hopes for the movie's prospects in China. Avengers: Infinity War, despite being in its third week of release, shows no signs of slowing down.

Rounding out the top five this weekend are Overboard, which brought in $10.1 million, and A Quiet Place, which brought in $6.4 million. The film will expand to 350 theaters next weekend. The original DEADPOOL opened with just over $130 million and DEADPOOL 2 should crush that number.

You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.
