The total domestic gross of Avengers: Infinity War now stands at $450.8 million. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens holds the prize for biggest second weekend, with a mighty $149 million in 2015". The Avengers ($1.52 billion) now holds the record for the biggest global total for a superhero film.

Avengers: Infinity War casually crossed the $1 billion mark in worldwide box office sales over the weekend, and its dominance was further bolstered by one of the biggest second-weekend openings of all time. The scene doesn't appear in Avengers: Infinity War at all, but it is especially misleading since it includes the Avengers' green goliath, the Hulk, who only appears briefly and early on in the film.

Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now.

MGM and Lionsgate's Pantelion Films' gender-swapped remake of Garry Marshall's 1987 comedy, "Overboard" scored the highest-grossing opening weekend for Pantelion Films with a better-than-expected $14.8 million from 1,623 theaters. As for the second best second weekend ever?

STX Films' comedy "I Feel Pretty", starring Amy Schumer as a self-conscious woman who suffers a head injury and then sees herself as ravishingly attractive, was fourth at $4.9 million.
