'Avengers: Infinity War' Crosses $500 Million At Domestic Box Office

New Fortnite update has big changes for Thanos

Unlike normal superhero movies, Avengers Infinity War treads on a different path with (SPOILER ALERT BEGINS) the villains getting the upper hand over the heroes and emerging victorious (SPOILER ENDS).

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. It was a pretty long wait for the first Infinity War trailer, as it was for Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok.

Infinity War again dominated the global box office with a $349 million weekend, including an estimated $200 million from China, making it the second-biggest industry three-day opening ever there.

The next stop for "Infinity War" in the coming weeks looks to be the $2 billion mark around the world. And that has led to a multi-record-breaking box office performance. That comprised earnings of $479 million in North America and $772 million in worldwide markets. The thriller starring Gabrielle Union was only made for around $6 million, but it took in $16.5 million. We were anticipating a little more out of this title, but it still managed to outperform the studio's expectations and almost triple its reported $6 million budget in its first three days of release.

Marvel is having an wonderful year at the box office and it isn't even June yet.

The $66 million came on top of about $9.3 million earned in previews Thursday, according to Ent Group.

Well, Marvel's reign of terror doesn't seem to be ending any time soon, as the film has reported massive turn-outs in global markets as well. Black Panther was a surprise box-office juggernaut and the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War has outdone its already larger than life expectations. 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.
