Avengers: Infinity War had a MASSIVE marketing campaign, blockbuster films of this level often spend around $150 million on marketing, It has been reported by Deadline that Disney spent north of that number for the film.

Sans no competition from another tentpole, Avengers: Infinity War has topped the box office for three consecutive weekends, a veritable eternity in summer, when Hollywood tentpoles generally open one on top of another. "Life of the Party" placed second with $18.5 million, missing a projection of $21 million by researcher Box Office Mojo.

Internationally, Life of the Party opened in eight markets and grossed an estimated $2.9 million including a $1.5 million second place debut in Australia and an $858k fourth place opening in the UK.

Infinity was is now the fifth biggest movie of all time behind Jurassic World ($1.671 billion), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion), Titanic ($2.187 billion), and Avatar ($2.788 billion) and appears to be a safe bet to become only the fourth movie ever to crack the $2 billion mark.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he went to watch the latest Marvel Studios' movie "Avengers: Infinity War", which he failed to understand.

It's hard to predict a Stanley Cup Champion this season because any one of these four teams could win it all. Those marks placed him at second and sixth in those respective categories in the National Hockey League .

Next week sees the release of DEADPOOL 2, which should easily dethrone AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.

But in a respectable third place was Universal's "Breaking In".

You can view this weekend's full box office results (via Box Office Mojo) below. It was one of the lowest openings for a movie starring Ms. McCarthy, and paled in comparison to "The Heat" ($39 million in 2013) and "Spy" ($29 million in 2015).

Rounding out the top tier are I Feel Pretty at No. 6 with $3.7 million, Rampage at No. 7 with $3.4 million, Tully at No. 8 with $2.2 million, Black Panther at No. 9 with $1.9 million and RBG at No. 10 with $1.2 million. Neither film had much support from critics (Life of the Party registers 41% at Rotten Tomatoes and Breaking In's at 27%), but according to Cinemascore audiences were not as critical of the female-led newcomers. That makes it the second-fastest title ever to cross the $500 million mark domestically. And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend previous year. This past weekend it gained $61.8 million bringing its domestic total to $546.8 million.
