Avengers: Infinity War is the biggest movie in the world, at the time of this writing it has grossed $502 million in the United States and $1,291 billion worldwide.

Not only that, but it's also now the fifth-highest grossing movie ever, jumping over heavy hitters like Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Black Panther, Age of Ultron, Furious 7 and the aforementioned Avengers.

While Avengers: Infinity War may not have appealed to Mr Bachchan, the film has earned over Rs 200 crore at the Indian box-office to become the only Hollywood project to achieve the feat.

Next week sees the release of DEADPOOL 2, which should easily dethrone AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. On Saturday, it became the second-fastest film to cross the US$500 million mark at the domestic box office.

New Line and Melissa McCarthy's comedy, Life of the Party, came in No. 2 with $18.5 million from 3,656 theaters.

Avengers: Infinity War, which unites dozens of the MCU's heroes to face off against Thanos (Josh Brolin), has been breaking box office records left and right since its late April release. The remake of Goldie Hawn-Kurt Russell's classic romcom - now starring Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris - was the second-highest opening in Mexico, following "Avengers: Infinity War". And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend a year ago.

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.

Breaking In stars Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children, who are being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. Reviews have been poor, and moviegoers gave it a B CinemaScore.

Rounding out the top five this weekend are Overboard, which brought in $10.1 million, and A Quiet Place, which brought in $6.4 million. The movie's domestic total through Sunday is $29.6 million.
