For further context, Infinity War is only the fifth film to rake in $100 million during its second weekend.

"An irresistible principle that brings with an nearly unimaginable cast of superhero characters in one massive popcorn movie deal has been demonstrated to be cinematic nirvana for film enthusiasts around the world", said Dergarabedian.

With little to no competition until Deadpool 2's May 18th release, expect Avengers: Infinity War to continue to dominate at the box office in the coming weeks as the film approaches $500 million domestically.

It was their first win in the last six games but Mark Hughes will be confident that his side can take something from this game. Southampton won't like the sound of those figures, because the south coast club are in dire need of reprieve.


That impressive feat was achieved over just 11 days.

Infinity War joined the billion-dollar club on Saturday, its 11th day in release. It just remains to be seen where Infinity War ends its run, and how many records it can break on the way there. It features heroes from across the MCU franchise - including Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man, Chris Evans' Captain America, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, Tom Holland's Spider-Man, and the Chris Pratt-led Guardians of the Galaxy - and pits them against Thanos (Josh Brolin), an interplanetary warlord trying to erase half the life in the universe. Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki, and Benicio del Toro, who plays the Collector, also appear, while Peter Dinklage shows up in a surprise role.

In the third spot was Paramount's sci-fi horror film "A Quiet Place", at $7.6 million. Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez star in the Lionsgate remake of a 1987 movie about a struggling single mother who persuades a rich playboy with amnesia that they are married. The year's most anticipated film certainly delivered on its promise, parlaying positive word-of-mouth and fervent hype into a record-shattering opening weekend that saw it earn $640.5 million at the worldwide box office. And the movie has still not touched down in China, where it is expected to draw a mammoth audience. The film is in theaters now.
