The movie brings together 23 heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), to stop the villain Thanos in his quest to destroy half of the world.

"We're in uncharted land", explained comScore senior press analyst Paul Dergarabediansaid "It is an additional weekend number that lots of movies would hope to possess on launching weekend".

Last weekend, "Infinity War" broke the record for biggest global opening in film history as well as the biggest domestic opening weekend.

Although critics were not especially won over by "Overboard", audiences gave the film a more favorable A- CinemaScore.

And "Tully", starring Charlize Theron, launched on 1,353 screens with $3.2 million. The top 5 is rounded out by holdovers A Quiet Place with $7.6 million, I Feel Pretty with $4.9 million and Rampage with $4.6 million.

Next week is another lackluster week with only LIFE OF THE PARTY hitting theaters.
