Meanwhile, "Avengers: Infinity War" dominated the North American box office for a third straight weekend, raking in $61.8 million as it easily fended off competition, industry estimates showed.

It was certainly a powerful moment in the film, especially for Peter and Gamora's relationship, which now spans three movies.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Robert Downey Jr., Benedict Wong and Mark Ruffalo star in "Avengers: Infinity War". If the local currency is taken into account, Avengers: Infinity Wars' three-day opening weekend of 1.27 billion yuan fell 80 million yuan short of Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel and Jason Statham's money-spinner The Fate of the Furious' 1.35 billion yuan previous year.

On Saturday, AIW recorded a whopping 491 million yuan ($77.49 million), making it the second highest single-day total ever in the mainland, only behind Monster Hunt 2's 546 million yuan ($86.18 million) opening day.

Well, the aforementioned The Fate of the Furious opened to $190 million in China and went on to gross about $383 million there when all was said and done. The fourth "Avengers" film is due out next year.

Israeli Defense Forces issued a statement, saying that almost 5,000 protesters were part of "riots" along the Gaza-Israel border. Some 15,000 Palestinian rioters in the Gaza Strip took part in protests along the security fence with Israel on Friday.

Speaking with BBC in a recent interview, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that the teenage Muslim superhero will "definitely" get some screen-time in the foreseeable future.

The film raked in a massive $200 million dollars for it's opening bow in China. Within 11 days, it became the fastest film to hit $1 billion in global sales, besting "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which hit $1 billion in global sales.

Now that Infinity War is entertaining fans in cinemas around the world, certain details regarding the film's inner workings are starting to come to light.

And Wes Anderson's stop-motion feature Isle of Dogs, released by Fox Searchlight, earned slightly more than $1 million in its eighth weekend of release for a $30 million domestic and $25 million foreign, for $55 million worldwide.
