The second-highest North American grosser, new rom-com "Overboard", trailed in its distant wake at just $14.8 million. The next Avengers film also topped "The power Awakens" into post the bestever USA opening last weekend.

Infinity War has now raked in a massive $1.16 billion at the global box office, breaking the record for Imax 4DX cinemas, which offers film fans motion seats. After posting the biggest-ever opening weekend, the movie has now crossed $1 billion globally. That would firmly place it again in the No. 1 spot, but it would fall short of second-weekend record-holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which made $149.2 million during its second weekend.

Combined, Avengers: Infinity War has now earned $1.164 billion, making it the fifth biggest superhero movie of all time. The film stars Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez as unlikely lovers, and was produced by MGM and Pantelion Films, a Lionsgate-backed production company aimed at Latino audiences.
