Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he went to watch the latest Marvel Studios' movie "Avengers: Infinity War", which he failed to understand.

Avengers: Infinity War dominated the global box office this weekend, earning another $349 million worldwide and bringing its global total to $1.607 billion.

The movie's domestic weekend take of $61.8 million was the fourth-biggest gross for a film in its third weekend behind Black Panther ($66 million), Avatar ($68 million) Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($90 million) after racing past the first Avengers ($56M), not adjusted for inflation. It made $281.3 million this weekend from 55 global markets, including a massive $200 million launch in China. At this time Infinity War ranks as the eighth largest domestic release ever and it will be interesting to see how the film holds up next weekend once Deadpool 2 debuts. "Life of the Party" placed second with $18.5 million, missing a projection of $21 million by researcher Box Office Mojo. This easily topped the weekend's new releases, the Melissa McCarthy-starring comedy Life of the Party and the Gabrielle Union-starring thriller Breaking In.

The success of "Infinity War" in China is a reminder of the importance of the world's fastest-growing market to Hollywood.


Infinity War continues to break records at the Box Office. And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend previous year.

Gillian Jacobs, Maya Rudolph, Adria Arjona, Debby Ryan, Jessie Ennis, Jacki Weaver, Stephen Root, Jimmy O. Yang, Luke Benward, Shannon Purser, Heidi Gardner, Nat Faxon, Sarah Baker, and Chris Parnell also star in Life of the Party, which was co-written by McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone, who also directed the film. Reviews have been poor, and moviegoers gave it a B CinemaScore. The movie's domestic total through Sunday is $29.6 million.

Rounding out the top five this weekend are Lionsgate and MGM's rom-com remake Overboard, with about $10.1 million, and Paramount's silently spooky horror hit A Quiet Place, with about $6.4 million.
