'Avengers: Infinity War' tops North American box office for third weekend

Avengers: Infinity War is continuing to dominate the weekend office, bringing in an additional $61.8 million!

On Saturday, Infinity War cracked the $500 million mark at the domestic box office, becoming the second-fastest film to do so, and through Sunday it will have grossed about $547.8 million.

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. It made $281.3 million this weekend from 55 worldwide markets, including a massive $200 million launch in China. Especially with huge releases like Solo and Deadpool 2 on the way. It saw a solid holdover in North America, making $10 million in its second weekend, for a domestic tally of 29.6 million. Avengers: Infinity War will likely turn a large profit for the studio in theaters. Marvel and Disney have high hopes for the movie's prospects in China.

One of the most anticipated films of recent times Avengers: Infinity War released and as expected broke multiple records.

Then another user posted a meme of what it feels like to watch Avengers: Infinity War without watching any of the previous parts. 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. Melissa McCarthy's comedy "Life of the Party" debuted in second with $18.5 million from 3,656 locations.

Falcone directed Life of the Party fom a script they co-wrote about a newly divorced mom who returns to college, where her daughter is also a student.

Universal's thriller "Breaking In" came in third with $16.5 million. It scored 31 percent positive reviews for its tale about Shaun Russell, played by Gabrielle Union, a mother trying to rescue her two children held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security.

MGM and Lionsgate-Pantelion's "Overboard" landed in Mexico with $10.5 million.
