'Avengers: Infinity War' stays strong with US$61 million third weekend

'Avengers: Infinity War' stays strong with US$61 million third weekend

Black Panther was a surprise box-office juggernaut and the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War has outdone its already larger than life expectations.

After becoming the quickest movie ever to $1 billion worldwide last weekend and having the second-largest second weekend ever in USA theaters, "Infinity War" won this weekend's box office for a third-straight weekend and has crossed the half-billion figure domestically. 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).

Avengers 4 is on the minds of every Marvel fan after that insane ending to Avengers: Infinity War. The film is marginally behind Jurassic World which stands with the collections of $ $1.67 billion and will cross it in the upcoming days to grab the fourth position in the list.

Marvel's latest film Avengers: Infinity War broke numerous records to become one of the highest grossing films of all time.

The movie is the culmination of 10 years of filmmaking which Marvel has referred to as the "most ambitious crossover event in history", something that the Internet has latched onto and mocked relentlessly for weeks. On Saturday, it became the second-fastest film to cross the US$500 million mark at the domestic box office.

Infinity War's big weekend is largely due to a huge opening in China, where the film made $200 million in its first weekend.

Rockets vs. Warriors Average Ticket Price Highest Ever for a Conference Finals
Daryl Morey just might get his wish, as the Rockets and Warriors are set to face off in the Western Conference Finals . The Rockets went 2-1 during the regular season against the Warriors, including a road victory in their season-opener.

And just narrowly rounding out the top ten is Magnolia's RBG, which expanded into 180 locations (+146) for its second weekend and brought in an estimated $1.16 million for a domestic cume that now tops $2 million. The original DEADPOOL opened with just over $130 million and DEADPOOL 2 should crush that number. Additional releases include Paramount's Book Club into ~2,500 theaters; Global Road's animated release Show Dogs into approximately 3,000 theaters; and Focus will debut their documentary Pope Francis - A Man of His Word into ~350 theaters.

You might think we are grasping on to some thin branches here, but considering how sad Groot's final scene really was, we all could use a reason to find hope.
