Marvel blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War has become the UK's biggest superhero film of all time after smashing a box office record.

A fourth Avengers film has been scheduled for release in one year.

On its way to becoming the biggest Hollywood film in India with net earnings of over Rs 200 crore, Infinity War posted opening weekend numbers of over Rs 120 crore.

$200 million opening weekend haul in China powers Avengers: Infinity War's global total to $1.05 billion. It is now the 11th highest-grossing import film of all-time and will soon dethrone Ready Player One, Jurassic World and Age of Ultron in the next few days.

Domestically, "Infinity War" grossed $61.8 million last weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday, to win its third straight weekend.

Avengers: Infinity War featured an astonishing number of superheroes, and a decent amount of side-characters from the various Marvel franchises. Should Thanos and Star-Lord have had a dance-off in the recent Avengers film?

On Saturday, AIW recorded a whopping 491 million yuan ($77.49 million), making it the second highest single-day total ever in the mainland, only behind Monster Hunt 2's 546 million yuan ($86.18 million) opening day. It now stands at the eight-largest all-time domestic release.

"Infinity War" is now poised to pass 2015's "Jurassic World" ($1.67 billion) and take a real run at joining "Avatar", "Titanic" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" as the only movies to cross the $2 billion mark.
