Infinity War becomes the 34th movie to cross $1 billion at the global box office, not accounting for inflation.
Infinity War has received generally positive reviews from critics, and moviegoers gave it an A CinemaScore. All eyes are now on China, which will open the film this upcoming week. The decrease was lower than the 59% encountered by Age of Ultronin its second weekend but a bit steeper than the 50% experienced by The Avengers.
Internationally, Infinity War amassed another $162.6 million, thanks in part to a record breaking $17.6 million opening in Russian Federation, bringing the film's worldwide total to $713.3 million - with China still to come later this month.
Way back in second place was the remake of the 1987 Garry Marshall comedy Overboard with $14.75 million from 1,623 screens. "The 56% decline was just enough to top the record previously held by fellow Marvel title Black Panther, which made $111.6 million in its second weekend".
