If you're a fan or have any interest regarding superhero movies then you've probably made the time to watch Avengers: Infinity War on the big screen.

The Walt Disney Studios on Sunday estimates that "Infinity War" has added $61.8 million from North American theaters bringing its total domestic earnings to $547.8 million.

As it stands, Infinity War is now the highest grossing superhero release internationally of all-time with its $1.059 billion topping the $946.4 million for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The third Avengers sequel continues to dominate as it enters its third week at the box office.

Elsewhere, the movie was No. 1 again domestically and No. 1 in the majority of offshore markets. The film also marked the coming together of several superheroes and although it is not imperative for one to watch all the films to understand Avengers: Infinity War, a little background knowledge will certainly be useful.

For all other Marvel virgins, Avengers: Infinity War is the 19th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that started a decade ago with Robert Downey Jr-starrer Iron Man. Tammy, debuted to $21.6 million in summer 2014, while The Boss, opened to $23.6 million in April 2016.

As of Wednesday, Infinity War has grossed $1.251 billion, with $479 million made in the USA and $772 million in worldwide markets.

That was better than the critical mauling received by Universal Pictures' "Breaking In", which generated $16.5 million against a forecast of $15 million from Box Office Pro.

The second weekend of Lionsgate and Pantelion's comedy "Overboard" landed in fourth with $10 million, while the sixth weekend of Paramount's "A Quiet Place" secured No. 5 with $6.3 million. In 2017, "The Fate of the Furious" became the fastest-opening Hollywood film in China, with $184 million in three days.

Four of the top ten films on the all time global list belong to Marvel Studios. Released by Warner Bros.' New Line division, the PG-13 title is aimed at getting mothers and daughters to hit theaters during the Mother's Day weekend. With that said, it will soon face some stiff competition, with Deadpool 2 opening this week and Solo: A Star Wars Story the week after.
