'Avengers: Infinity War' tops North American box office for third weekend

'Avengers' Topples Melissa McCarthy Movie at the Box Office

'Avengers' Topples Melissa McCarthy Movie at the Box Office

Amitabh Bachchan received a lot of help from people on social media so that he could understand Infinity Wars.

"Avengers: Infinity War" has maintained its staying power at the domestic box office. Also, it hit $500 million in 15 days, the second-fastest of any pic behind Force Awakens (10 days). Life of the Party will take in about $18.5 million at 3,656 domestic theaters.

Do you think Avengers: Infinity War can reach $2 billion? It made $281.3 million this weekend from 55 worldwide markets, including a massive $200 million launch in China.

Authorities also say neighborhood residents have previously reported the presence of a six-foot alligator in that retention pond. Jeff Williamson with the sheriff's office said deputies had knocked on doors in the area to ask if anyone they knew was missing.

Today Marvel Studios' AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR has become the biggest superhero movie of all time within the United Kingdom and Ireland with an estimated total box office of £60M after its third weekend of release. Neither film had much support from critics (Life of the Party registers 41% at Rotten Tomatoes and Breaking In's at 27%), but according to Cinemascore audiences were not as critical of the female-led newcomers.

MGM and Lionsgate-Pantelion's "Overboard" landed in Mexico with $10.5 million. Beyond Infinity War's continued success, the weekend's two new wide releases saw Life of the Party and Breaking In finished in second and third place respectively as films such as A Quiet Place, Black Panther and the limited release documentary RBG were just some of the fellow standouts in the top ten. The movie also bowed in China this weekend, powering a massive $281.3 million global haul. It was one of the lowest openings for a movie starring Ms. McCarthy, and paled in comparison to "The Heat" ($39 million in 2013) and "Spy" ($29 million in 2015). 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. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union's "Breaking In" launched in third with $16.5 million in 2,537 locations. 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.
