The scene doesn't appear in Avengers: Infinity War at all, but it is especially misleading since it includes the Avengers' green goliath, the Hulk, who only appears briefly and early on in the film.

The Force Awakens hit $400 million faster and landed a bigger second weekend, with a $149.2 million (GBP110 million) take.

The success of Avengers: Infinity War has now pushed the MCU beyond the $16 billion mark combined - and with Infinity War still raking in the cash and Ant-Man and the Wasp still to come this summer, it's possible that the MCU will end the year with $17 billion plus in box office takings.

Infinity War has already surpassed the global totals of The Dark Knight ($1 billion), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.09 billion), and Captain America: Civil War ($1.15 billion).


"We're in uncharted territory again", said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Internationally, it grossed $162.6 million - including a $17.6 million opening in Russian Federation - taking its overseas total to $713.3 million. The film is currently sitting at $1.16 billion at the worldwide box office, and is now the #15 worldwide blockbuster of all-time. However, Solo, the upcoming Han Solo movie, is tracking for a $170 million+ opening weekend, which could set a new box office records itself.

Third place went to "A Quiet Place", which has grossed $159.9 million in five weeks in theaters, and fourth place to "I Feel Pretty", now up to $37.8 million in weekend three. Today we learned the answer to that question, which is no, with Avengers: Infinity War easily taking the top spot with $112.4 million. It is the biggest opening to date for Lionsgate's Pantelion Films, which took advantage of the Cinco de Mayo holiday in plugging the movie, which earned an A- CinemaScore from audiences, Hispanics made up 42% of ticket buyers.

"Black Panther", $3.1 million ($390,000 international).
