Infinity War becomes the 34th movie to cross $1 billion at the global box office, not accounting for inflation.

The movie won the domestic weekend box office for a second-straight weekend and now has a domestic total of $450.8 million.

MGM/Lionsgate's "Overboard", a reboot of the 1987 Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell comedy starring Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez, took in a respectable $14.75 million to come in second place.

Internationally, Infinity War amassed another $162.6 million, thanks in part to a record breaking $17.6 million opening in Russian Federation, bringing the film's worldwide total to $713.3 million - with China still to come later this month. A big showing in China could help propel Avengers: Infinity War towards the $2 billion mark, a feat only three movies in history have ever passed, Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.068 billion), Titanic ($2.187 billion) and Avatar ($2.788 billion).

The superhero tentpole opened to $257.6 million last weekend, attaining the highest-grossing opening weekend of all time.

"Avengers: Infinity War" earns $112.47 million over the weekend to win the box office for a second-straight weekend. Infinity War will remain the number one film next weekend with a gross around the $60 million mark.

"Tully", Jason Reitman's latest collaboration with "Juno" screenwriter Diablo Cody and "Young Adult" star Charlize Theron, took in $3.1 million.

Next week is another lackluster week with only LIFE OF THE PARTY hitting theaters.
