'Avengers: Infinity War' hits China, becomes fifth biggest film ever

Marvel's latest film Avengers: Infinity War broke numerous records to become one of the highest grossing films of all time.

"Avengers: Infinity War" collected $61.8 million in theaters in the US and Canada this weekend, ComScore Inc. estimated in an email Sunday. By analyzing the current scenario, we definitely think the film can cross $ 2 million mark but crossing the lifetime of Avatar will be a hard task for the Avengers: Infinity War.

The film narrowly managed to beat out Breaking In, which performed just below expectations with $16.5 million.

It should be noted that China is one of the largest movie markets in the world.

Before you set out to watch Avengers Infinity War, there is one rule you should have known before doing - you need to watch all the 18 MCU movies that came before it. The film received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 70% female and 80% of the overall audience was over the age of 25.

The weekend's major studio releases, Life of the Party starring Melissa McCarthy and Breaking In starring Gabrielle Union, performed about as anticipated.

It was the first time a release directed by her husband, Ben Falcone ("Tammy", "The Boss"), didn't open over $20 million. The movie's early industry projections have it opening around $150 million.

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. The film also enjoyed a solid weekend internationally where it brought in $2.8 million from 55 markets as it passed $100 million internationally with releases in China, France and Japan still to go. And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend a year ago. The film will expand to 350 theaters next weekend. With that said, it will soon face some stiff competition, with Deadpool 2 opening this week and Solo: A Star Wars Story the week after. There is no word on whether it will also release in China after a minor delay or not.
