Today Marvel Studios' AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR has become the biggest superhero movie of all time within the United Kingdom and Ireland with an estimated total box office of £60M after its third weekend of release.

Infinity War opened Friday in China, its final foreign market.

Back in January, Big B had threatened to quit the micro-blogging site, Twitter, accusing it of reducing his followers.

Good players are always compatible: Zinedine Zidane on Neymar speculation
Neymar said this season has been the least he's ever played, so he is rested for the World Cup that begins on June 14 in Moscow. I don't think there'd be any problems within the dressing room but for me, it would be a bit weird to see him back at Barca.

Outside the top five, and landing in the top ten for the 13th consecutive week, is Disney and Marvel's Black Panther.

At this point, box office analysts now expect Avengers: Infinity War to tap out at around $1.8 billion - just shy of that elusive $2 billion milestone that has so far remained exclusive to holiday films, such as Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Life of the Party will take in about $18.5 million at 3,656 domestic theaters. However, if you are one of those who sat through Avengers: Infinity War without watching the previous films in the franchise and was not able to wrap your head around what exactly was happening, do not think you are the only one.

The success of "Infinity War" in China is a reminder of the importance of the world's fastest-growing market to Hollywood. Once again, McCarthy is struggling to open a movie near $20 million on her own.

It is the 21st movie in Korean cinema to sell 10 million or more tickets, and the fifth foreign movie to do so. It made $281.3 million this weekend from 55 worldwide markets, including a massive $200 million launch in China.

Universal's Breaking In finished in third position with an estimated $16.5 million.

Breaking In stars Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children, who are being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. The movie's domestic total through Sunday is $29.6 million.

Some of the 15,000-plus that actually make their way into the building are no doubt borrowing from college funds to do so. Scoring first in Game 7 wasn't imperative, but it's something the Jets wanted, and they got it thanks to Tyler Myers.

Among holdovers, MGM and Pantelion Films' remake Overboard placed No. 4 in its second outing with $10.1 million after declining a narrow 31 percent.
