However, the film lost out to Star Wars:The Force Awakens which grossed an wonderful $149 million in its second ever weekend.
Stocks Move Notably Lower After Fed Signals June Rate Hike
Equities tumbled in the final hour of trading as concern mounted that the Fed may let inflation run hot as it gradually tightens. The benchmark United States 10-year Treasury yield eased about 1 basis point in early Asian trade to 2.970 percent.
Even with that drop in mind, it's worth noting that the film hasn't even opened in China, where it potentially stands to earn even more.
The Marvel Studios film, which stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and features a litany of superheroes, reached the milestone one day earlier than the previous record held by 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". A big showing in China could help propel Avengers: Infinity War towards the $2 billion mark, a feat only three movies in history have ever passed, Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion), Titanic ($2.187 billion) and Avatar ($2.788 billion). If Infinity War makes all its money upfront quick and fast, perhaps the film won't be able to dethrone Star Wars' monumental all-time domestic haul of $936.6 million. It just remains to be seen where Infinity War ends its run, and how many records it can break on the way there.
In second place - and trailing by US$98 million - was Overboard, a gender-swapped remake of the 1987 romantic comedy with the same title. Internationally, it grossed $162.6 million - including a $17.6 million opening in Russian Federation - taking its overseas total to $713.3 million.
STX Films' comedy "I Feel Pretty", starring Amy Schumer as a self-conscious woman who suffers a head injury and then sees herself as ravishingly lovely, was fourth at $4.9 million. Opening in a similar amount of theaters, meanwhile, Tully only managed to hit No. 7, which isn't as bad as Young Adult but only proves that Charlize Theron, sadly, isn't a box office draw.
"Avengers:Infinity War", $162.6 million. Looking ahead to next weekend, only two movies will arrive in wide release, with Universal's thriller Breaking In, starring Gabrielle Union, and New Line Cinema's Life of the Party, starring Melissa McCarthy.
