'Avengers: Infinity War' becomes fastest film to earn $1 billion globally

Ten Summer Movies to look forward to now that Avengers Infinity War is over

Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston and Josh Brolin, among others. 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.

But it's in the latter category that the movie continues to break records. Records are being set around the world, including for the biggest opening day ever in Russian Federation.

The film, which topped last weekend's box office on the strength of a record-setting bow, will add an estimated $112.5 million to its haul this weekend. That film, of course, had the benefit of the Christmas holiday, which helped push it towards a record breaking $149.2 million second weekend.

There was little new competition this weekend, but a few alternative options including the "Overboard" remake, which scored the highest-grossing opening weekend for Pantelion Films with $14.8 million from 1,623 theaters. Critics ripped apart the new version starring Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris. Overseas, A Quiet Place has earned a loud $95 million to date. "Rampage" rounded out the top five with $4.6 million, bumping its domestic total to $84.8 million.

Strong reviews -86% on Rotten Tomatoes and 76/100 from Metacritic- weren't enough to persuade ticket buyers into checking out the latest feature from Up in the Air director Jason Reitman.
