Unlike normal superhero movies, Avengers Infinity War treads on a different path with (SPOILER ALERT BEGINS) the villains getting the upper hand over the heroes and emerging victorious (SPOILER ENDS). Based on local currency, the mega-superhero mashup scored the second-biggest three-day debut of all time in the Middle Kingdom behind last year's The Fate of the Furious, according to Disney.

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. The remake of Goldie Hawn-Kurt Russell's classic romcom - now starring Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris - was the second-highest opening in Mexico, following "Avengers: Infinity War".

This may seem like a silly question to ask of a film like Avengers: Infinity War, but looking at the numbers and figures it may be hard for the film to turn a profit while in theaters. Life of the Party will take in about $18.5 million at 3,656 domestic theaters.

It was the first time a release directed by her husband, Ben Falcone ("Tammy", "The Boss"), didn't open over $20 million.

It is the 21st movie in Korean cinema to sell 10 million or more tickets, and the fifth foreign movie to do so.

The movie was always destined to make an incredibly large amount of money its opening weekend, but instead of one weekend between the latest Marvel hit and its biggest competition, Fox's "Deadpool 2", "Infinity War" had two weekends to shine. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union's "Breaking In" launched in third with US$16.5 million in 2,537 locations.

And just narrowly rounding out the top ten is Magnolia's RBG, which expanded into 180 locations (+146) for its second weekend and brought in an estimated $1.16 million for a domestic cume that now tops $2 million. The movie's domestic total through Sunday is $29.6 million.
