On Saturday, Infinity War cracked the $500 million mark at the domestic box office, becoming the second-fastest film to do so, and through Sunday it will have grossed about $547.8 million.
The Anthony and Joe Russo directorial earned 257.69 million dollars in its opening weekend, breaking the previous record holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens that had opened at 248 million dollars.
Of course, "Avengers: Infinity War" still reigned supreme, taking in another $61.8 million domestically. The film, which has had audiences rushing to cinemas globally to see the biggest ensemble of characters put together on screen, overtakes previous number one The Dark Knight Rises which made a total of £56.3M at the United Kingdom box office.
So It makes sense that Disney would want to keep things on the down low when it comes to what the real budget it, suffice it to say if the budget was "only" $250-300 million Disney would have no issue reporting it, so its likely to be much higher. And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend previous year. The film also now ranks as the fifth largest global release of all-time with $1.6 billion, just behind Jurassic World at $1.67 billion.
Internationally, the comedy tested the waters in eight markets for a foreign debut of $2.9 million and $21.4 million globally.
Outside the top five, and landing in the top ten for the 13th consecutive week, is Disney and Marvel's Black Panther. The pic's rule is expected to end next weekend when Fox and Ryan Reynolds unfurl Deadpool 2.
