In China, the movie has reportedly pulled in approximately $70 million, which firmly places it as the third highest movie opening ever there, trailing only behind Monster Hunt 2 and The Fate of the Furious. And this was before the film's release in China, one of the biggest markets in the world for Hollywood films. Avengers: Infinity War, despite being in its third week of release, shows no signs of slowing down. Infinity War looks to continue its record-breaking run by toppling Avengers: Age of Ultron's China debut by outdoing its $156 million opening.

Epic Games has updated Fortnite once again, making changes to the limited time event mode, Avengers: Infinity War.

The movie took in an estimated $61.8 million, according to Exhibitor Relations, which puts its domestic total at $547 million ($1.06 billion worldwide). The box office will get into the full summer movie season swing when "Deadpool 2" opens next weekend to kick off a constant string of big releases. In fact, the directors revealed that Peter Parker's aunt, May Parker, actually survived the fateful finger snap. The comedy stars McCarthy as Deanna Miles, who, shortly after her dropping her daughter Maddie (Molly Gordon) off at college, learns that her husband (Matt Walsh) is leaving her for another woman (Julie Bowen). The movie now sits at a 27 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.




Breaking In stars Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children, who are being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security.

Among holdovers, MGM and Pantelion Films' remake Overboard placed No. 4 in its second outing with $10.1 million after declining a narrow 31 percent.

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. The pic is likewise impressing overseas, where it jumped the $100 mililon mark over the weekend.
