Amitabh Bachchan's epic reaction after watching Avengers: Infinity War

Amitabh Bachchan's epic reaction after watching Avengers: Infinity War

Put another way - Infinity War is just days away from passing up the entire lifetime run of Avengers: Age to Ultron in China ($240.1 million).

The release of DEADPOOL 2 should spell the end of records for AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR since I'm guessing DEADPOOL 2 has a much higher rewatchability factor than Infinity War. On Saturday, it became the second-fastest film to cross the $500 million mark at the domestic box office. The Melissa McCarthy-led, back-to-college comedy "Life of the Party" beat "Breaking In", a thriller about a mom battling a home invasion.

The superhero adventure also topped 2012's "Avengers" as the highest-grossing superhero film globally. With China's debut this weekend, "Infinity War" is officially open in all markets.

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.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and made for close to $300 million, Infinity War marks the third Avengers film and the 19th installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

AU disease control centre to help DRC fight new Ebola outbreak
The Democratic Republic of Congo ( DRC ) is facing another episode of Ebola-related haemorrhagic fever. Another is a woman from Ikoko Impenge, the epicentre of the outbreak some 30km from Bikoro , he said.

And just narrowly rounding out the top ten is Magnolia's RBG, which expanded into 180 locations (+146) for its second weekend and brought in an estimated $1.16 million for a domestic cume that now tops $2 million.

But in a respectable third place was Universal's "Breaking In". The movie, which has received mostly negative reviews from critics with a 41 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, performed on the lower side of $17 to $22 million expectations.

WHAT DID YOU SEE at the movies this weekend??

Additionally, Breaking In opened in five worldwide markets this weekend with an estimated $1 million, including a fifth place finish in the United Kingdom with an estimated $609k. The movie's domestic total through Sunday is $29.6 million. And it didn't match the $19.5 million opening of Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's Snatched over Mother's Day weekend a year ago.
