Avengers smash United States box office

“Infinity War” is boring and dumb. Watch some anime instead.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" was a soaring success.

It all started with this loudmouth hitting the big screen in 2008 - 10 years, 19 movies and $15 billion later, the team has grown a bit.

Fifth place saw a resurgence of Black Panther into the top five, up from eighth place last week. That would give Infinity War the second largest domestic debut in cinematic history.

The heroic ensemble cast includes Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth's Thor, Chris Evans' Captain America, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther, Chris Pratt's Star Lord, Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange, and Mark Ruffalo's Hulk. As per the current scenario Avengers War has became the first Hollywood movie by breaking all new industry records.

The investments paid off. That's far more than the previous record, which was "The Fate of the Furious" when it opened to $541.9 globally a year ago.

"Infinity War" opened at No. 1 in all territories. The film that took the biggest fall was Warner Bros. and Dwayne Johnson's "Rampage", dropping 65 percent to $7.1 million in its third weekend for a $77.9 million total.

Jury Finds Comedian Bill Cosby Guilty of Sexual Abuse
The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission. After O'Neill mentioned the dog, Cosby stood up at the defense table and made a comical, barking-like motion with his mouth.

For context, the previous record in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for domestic sales on preview night was the last Avengers film, Age of Ultron, which raked in $26.7 million.

It's official. Walt Disney-owned Marvel Studios are the box office champions.

The film, which brings toger nearly all superheroes of Marvel Comics, has also achieved this weekend best premiere of USA history by raising 250 million dollars (206 million euros).

It joins only six other films to achieve such incredible figures, and is now Marvel Studios' best opening weekend yet. And it's highly likely that superfans will boost the gross by returning to theatres multiple times. So it's no surprise that a movie featuring almost all Marvel's heroes-and the culmination of 18 earlier movies with interwoven plot lines-would take off as it has.

The film now has a fairly good 84% freshness score on the aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, with the audience score resting at 93%, but those numbers will fluctuate greatly throughout opening weekend.
