By adding another Marvel flick to this list of record-breaking box-office debuts, the Mouse House is responsible for nine of the top 10 biggest openings in US history.

We could spend an infinity discussing and analyzing Avengers: Infinity War, but this week we just settled for an entire episode of Cinemaholics devoted to the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film.

Marvel Studios will release the next Avengers film ("Avengers 4", for now) in May 2019, expected to pick up after the events of "Infinity War". Not only does Avengers: Infinity War presume that viewers have seen all the preceding films in the Marvel series but, worse, it presumes that they've thought about them afterward. Incredibly, "Infinity War" sprinted to first place without the enormous markets of China or Russian Federation, where it will open in the next two weeks.

And the Marvel superhero romp has yet to open in China, the world's second-largest movie market.

They relied on a different website than they had in the OR search, and they did not seek a warrant for DeAngelo's DNA. The culprit is suspected of at least 12 slayings and 50 rapes in 10 counties from Northern to Southern California.

D'Amico also volunteered with the nonprofit Tennis Canada association, working at the Rogers Cup tournament since the age of 12. Work is now being done to positively identify all of the victims in the attack, but that could take some time it turns out.

Infinity War has three weeks to dominate the Box Office because the only competition it faces is Deadpool 2 which is not out until May 18th, 2018. Globally, "Infinity War" hit a whopping $630 million, smashing the previous global opening weekend record of $541.9 million held by "The Fate Of The Furious". "Fate" still holds the record for global (worldwide total minus US domestic) with $443.2.

After Force Awakens, the biggest North American openings belong to Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($220 million) and Jurassic World ($208.8 million).

Disney is being more cautious and suggesting a domestic launch in the $225 million-$240 million range. It is one of only six films to have ever achieved more than $200m during their opening weekend.

Despite a cliffhanger ending, word of mouth still seems to be very positive for Infinity War. The question now is whether it can pass TFA's total numbers and/or become the first movie ever to pass $1 billion in the domestic box office alone. Fourth place went to Rampage, which earned $7 million. But it has been a phenomenal openening for the superhero film which grossed $200 million at the worldwide box office.
