This makes it the highest grossing superhero film of all time.

The film also marked the coming together of several superheroes and although it is not imperative for one to watch all the films to understand Avengers: Infinity War, a little background knowledge will certainly be useful.

Universal's Breaking In finished in third position with an estimated $16.5 million.

Avengers: Infinity War, which unites dozens of the MCU's heroes to face off against Thanos (Josh Brolin), has been breaking box office records left and right since its late April release.

Infinity War's big weekend is largely due to a huge opening in China, where the film made $200 million in its first weekend.

Kevin Magnussen will start seventh with Haas, while teammate Romain Grosjean is 10th on the grid. Hamilton agreed. "We should make the decisions", he said.

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. On Saturday, it became the second-fastest film to cross the US$500 million mark at the domestic box office.

Additionally, Breaking In opened in five worldwide markets this weekend with an estimated $1 million, including a fifth place finish in the United Kingdom with an estimated $609k.

"Infinity War" basically sucked the life out of the other big release of the weekend, New Line/Warner Bros.'s "Life of the Party". The movie's domestic total through Sunday is $29.6 million. The superhero mashup collected another $61 million at the box office, nearly doubling the combined take of the weekend's two big theatrical releases. And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend past year.

Rounding out the top five this weekend are Lionsgate and MGM's rom-com remake Overboard, with about $10.1 million, and Paramount's silently spooky horror hit A Quiet Place, with about $6.4 million. The original DEADPOOL opened with just over $130 million and DEADPOOL 2 should crush that number.
