Today Marvel Studios' AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR has become the biggest superhero movie of all time within the United Kingdom and Ireland with an estimated total box office of £60M after its third weekend of release.

"Avengers: Infinity War" collected $61.8 million in theaters in the US and Canada this weekend, ComScore Inc. estimated in an email Sunday. With the humungous business of $ 1.60 billion, it has become the fifth highest worldwide grosser of all time surpassing the collections of The Avengers ($ 1.518 billion) and Furious 7 ($ 1.516 billion).

Internationally, however, is where Infinity War made the most noise this weekend as it debuted in China and delivered an estimated $200 million, the second largest debut in the market ever based on local currency. And that has led to a multi-record-breaking box office performance.

Outside China overseas, Infinity War is the highest grossing release in industry history in Brazil, Central America, Bolivia, Venezuela, Latin America as a region, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, India (Hollywood) and Vietnam. Tammy, debuted to $21.6 million in summer 2014, while The Boss, opened to $23.6 million in April 2016.


The worldwide figure makes Infinity War the biggest MCU title ever, passing The Avengers.

That was better than the critical mauling received by Universal Pictures' "Breaking In", which generated $16.5 million against a forecast of $15 million from Box Office Pro.

The second weekend of Lionsgate-Pantelion's comedy "Overboard" was heading for fourth place with about $8 million, followed by Paramount's sixth weekend of horror hit "A Quiet Place" with $6 million. The film will expand to 350 theaters next weekend. The pic's rule is expected to end next weekend when Fox and Ryan Reynolds unfurl Deadpool 2. They also rep the No. 9 western release of all time in the Middle Kingdom after just three days.
