"Avengers: Infinity War" hasn't even been out for a week and it's already breaking all the domestic box-office records!
In it's opening weekend it earned a record $250M for domestic box-offices which passed Star Wars and earned $630M internationally which is almost unheard of! This is also the first time two movies from the MCU have been on the top 5 movies in the same weekend!

Fans are especially excited that a movie having to do with comic books and heroes are being so well received in theaters!
A box office dominated by comic book movies. What a time to be alive. If it's got a cape or super power, people will see it. Classic, good old fashioned movie making strangled to death.— David Cartlidge (@davidjaca) April 29, 2018
This weekend at the box office is an interesting one.— Robert “The DCD” Workman (@thedcd) April 29, 2018
Avengers: Infinity War may have the biggest domestic opening of all time.
A Quiet Place is nearing $150 million and making a name for John Krasinski.
And Black Panther is still in the top five.
And even poked a little fun at James Cameron who said, “I’m hoping we’ll start getting ‘Avenger’ fatigue here pretty soon,” Cameron said. “Not that I don’t love the movies. It’s just, come on guys, there are other stories to tell besides hyper-gonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy!”
Most people think he's just nervous because of his eventual release of "Avatar 2" and because of his own box office records for the original "Avatar"!
